just depends who's available. i'd still draft best player available for the first few rounds at least. don't be afraid to keep drafting hitters if that's where the value is.

Really you've got a good bunch with the suggested changes. If you could trade Fielder for 2 players 1 near Fielder and 1 better than Heyward thats something to consider. Pineda and Harper are fine to redraft, but right now you've got better choices. Heyward as your final keeper and holding Fielder leaves you with a great start to the draft

No way can you justify keeping Harper with the other 6 keepers you have.

Agree with everything here. ;-D
