last keeper

Position or age doesn't matter to me.
I'm looking for the best this year.

I understand you don't care about position, but "best" is such a relative term. Player value doesn't exist in a vacuum, it's dependent upon the eccentricities of your league. My league is 2-catcher and favors hitting, making Avila an easy call. But I suspect your league is a little different.

If Street manages to stay healthy all year, he is my pick. I'd go Beachy next if not sold on Street.

I'm going to go with Beachy on this. With his strong season interrupted for a little while last year, I think he shows us what he can really do this season.

I'm with Spuds on this and would go with Beachy. Highest upside of the bunch.

Beachy as well. The other three have two many question marks. Both Walden and Street have the ability to be the best players from this list but RP is just too volatile for me to keep either of them.
