I agree with these 8. You could make a case for Avila over Reyes if you are scared of his health bill, but I think Reyes trade value alone makes him worth retaining as the keeper.

Help me?

So I should keep Strasburg over Phillips???

Kind of surprised since 2B isnt a position that in my opinion has alot of good player for fantasy purposes

kind of a no brainer imo, Kimbrel isn't worth keeping since closers are easy to replace. The only reason I'd pass on keeping Brandon Phillips is because the rest of the guys on your roster are too valuable to pass up. Good roster btw. ;-D

I went with Phillips because your team is stacked, would rather play for a better shot at winning next year with Phillips at 2b.

i would drop a pitcher and keep b philips. 2B sucks and he provides a bit of everything. he could suck next year but i think that's an acceptable risk. i am pro-streaming sp so view my thoughts w/n that context.

Completely agree with this. Keeping SP year over year is tricky. Numbers can vary wildly for wins/losses/ERA and a lot of it is out of the pitcher's control. Ubaldo is a great example of that. Anyway, if you tie yourself to a pitcher and he doesn't perform, it hurts. Keep Phillips and take a couple pitchers at the start of your draft if you want.
