Hamilton, Crawford, Santana - You have lots of good numbers in alot of categories, Santana is tops at C this year as well.

Lester, Hellickson - I'm not a big devotee to saves and someone always shows up out of nowhere to get 30 saves each year, Brewers will be down this year won't have as many wins and he won't be as productive.

I normally don't advocate keeping closers either, but in a larger league (14+ teams), keeping a closer wouldn't be crazy. I agree that every year there are guys who come out of nowhere to become good closers, but Axford merits keeping. He posts incredibly good K numbers. And just because the Brewers lost a bit of hitting, that doesn't mean he won't get save chances. In fact, losing some hitting may actually boost his save chances. MIL has a decent hitting core and a good rotation. But trying to predict saves is a fool's endeavor. Winning lots of games doesn't always translate to high amounts of save opportunities. More than half of the saves leaders from last year came from non-playoff teams.

In a standard 12 team league, Axford is currently being drafted 2 rounds ahead of Hellickson.
