Agreed with the consensus. Only one I might consider swapping would be Jayson Werth for Ike Davis. Werth is coming off a terrible year and is going into his age 33 season. Davis gets a nice bump in OBP leagues, he's only 24 and was off to a great start before his ankle injury. If you don't have to declare keepers for a couple months, I might hold off and see what they're saying about Davis when Spring Training starts. If he's going to start the season healthy I might be tempted to take him over Werth.

Oh, it looks like my list is the same.. Agree with lane about swapping out Werth for Davis as a valid alternative.

Thanks guys for your input.

Keeping Ike Davis was my initial inclination also. He was off to a blazing start last year before he got hurt and the changes at Citi Field can only help him. But it might depend on what other 1B are left in the draft pool after my league makes it's final cut-down to 8 in a couple weeks. I'll have to wait and see.

If I keep Ike, it would probably be a choice between Werth and Morrison. Do I want an older player who can guarantee? me 20HR and 15SB or a younger player with good power and OBP potential?

werth's value is increased just as much if not more than ike davis' value in an OBP league. regression works both ways and i fully expect that werth will improve back toward his career numbers.
