In your early drop scenario the team with 12 worthy keeps still retains his best 10. I'd keep 3 more for sure, Hosmer Strasburg and Greinke in that order. My 4th (bubble keeper) would likey be either Hellickson Ogando or Jhonny but I'd probably just keep 9.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

I'd stick with 9 keepers. I don't see a player really worth keeping. Hellickson isn't any more than a fantasy #3, even when he's on top of his game. Peralta is playing above his head, and Ogando is pitching above his head I think. I'll be very interested in seeing how he handles a "full" season as a starter.

I like Gardner; the time will come when Jeter is no longer the leadoff man. Give Gardner some consistent time at leadoff, and he could lead the league in runs while being top-5 in steals. I have a feeling he'll leadoff next season.

I'd keep Greinke, Strasburg, Hosmer, and Gardner. I agree that Gardner will start putting up some great numbers once he's full time leadoff.

Lend a hand?
