C: Y. Molina, K. Suzuki
1B: Butler
2B: Pedroia ;-D
SS: A. Cabrera
3b: Wright ;-D
IF: Uggla
OF: Crawford ;-D , Berkman, Hunter, R. Roberts, Crisp
Util: Peralta
Bench: Jeter

SP: Kershaw ;-D , Weaver ;-D , Hanson, Oswalt, Pineida, Kuroda, Garza
RP: Bell, B. Wilson
Bench: Colon, Santos

Those are the easy five. That last one is hard though. I don't trust Cabrera to have anything remotely close to last year so i wouldn't keep him. If you could swing a deal with him involved that would be ideal but that is usually pretty hard to pull off and most people are pretty skeptical about him. Uggla is good but you already have a 2B and he will kill your BA. Not what I would want going into the draft. Which leaves me Butler or Pineida. Because this is a 10 team league, SP should be plentiful so I would lean towards Butler. He had a good second half that could lead to more power this year. He helps in a number of categories and doesn't really hurt you in any of them.

I agree with MaudDib above me, except that for #6 I would choose between Hanson and Pineda. I know people are worried about Hanson's health, but I think his upside makes him worth the risk.

Interesting in that everyone is still up on Wright? I have just about given up on him and have him on my avoid list this year in non-keepers. To me Pedroia, Kershaw and Weaver are easy. I have to keep Crawford even if he killed me last season. Do not see much of a choice. After that, it is basically 2 of Wright, Uggla, Cabrera, Berkman, Hanson. I would love to deal Wright and Cabrera for an upgraded stick, but this is a really trade hostile league so I am not optimistic in getting anything done there.

we all tire of different players at a different pace. I gave up on Uggla last year and won't be going back; Crawford I don't own and probably won't. People don't have to be up on Wright to include him among your keepers; he's at least that. Always tuff to trade 2 guys for 1 in the offseason, especially in a 10 teamer where most everyone has 6 they like from their roster. I think pitching is so plentiful and SS so weak Asdrubal earned another year from you

With Citi Field moving their fences in and Wright presumably healthy, I have no problem predicting 2010 level of production from DW, where he went .283, 29 HR, 103 RBI, 87 R, 19 SB... he's been that type of player for most of his career, and I'm far away from the point of souring on him, especially at a position as thin as 3B.

Maybe...in theory though if it were just Citi Field, he would at least have hit on the road. I think it is in his head. Add in Reyes and Beltran gone and the Mets may very well finish dead last in the NL East in 2012. If it is from pressure to be the man in NYC, that is only going to get worse in 2012. Other than Ike Davis, who on the Mets can hit now besides Wright? Just not happy having to keep Wright and Crawford and watch another fantasy offense go up in smoke potentially.
