That's how I'd go. Give yourself a complete infield, 2 stud OF, 2 stud SP and a tremendous young upside guy in Lawrie. (trade him for a haul if he starts hot, or trade Beltre later? Nice problem to have) C is surprisingly deep this year so I wouldn't worry. It's a 12 team league so I can't imagine many are keeping closers; shouldn't be too difficult to acquire.

Thanks for your quick response!

If you had to pick one of Brett Lawrie or Adrian Beltre in this format, who would you go with? I plan on trading one of them in the off season and not keeping both.

If you can keep them forever I'd feel good enough keeping Lawrie if you can get good keeper value for Beltre. Also, FWIW I'd keep Nelson Cruz over Uggla and hope for good health.

Last spot came down to Cruz vs. Uggla for me. I went with Cruz as I think he holds more value and could thus be traded for a bigger return. But if you want to shore up your MI, go with Uggla. I think you should hold onto Beltre and Lawrie.

Pujols, Crisp, Revere, and the 7 relievers.
