I keep Halladay, Henandez, Reyes, Crawford and the 5th starts to get real tough. In all reality, it kinda depends on who you play with, and what position is going to be A.) Kept most and B.) shallowest overall. 1B and 3B are usually pretty deep, I tend not to overvalue production there since you can grab value relatively late there. OF is pretty deep, Id stay away there too, even though Pence could make sense with the Phillies for a full yr. If I liked your C or 2B options Id go there, but I dont. Your SP situation is the real gamble. I dont like Grienke, for all that potential he rarely lives up to it, but Josh Johnson and Adam Wainwright are, in any yr not coming off injuries, taken in the top 3 rounds. I take one of those, and between them its probably Johnson.

Help on mine? viewtopic.php?t=440150

Id say Halladay Hernandez Grienke Reyes for sure

As for the 5th, Id stay away from crawford, worried about how dissapointing he was last year, plus the wrist injury. Plus you can probably grab him late in the draft as his draft value has decreased some.

I like Josh Johnson a lot this year, so personally I would prob keep him as well. Napoli is also an interesting bat, 30 HRS from a catcher spot. lastly wainwright wouldn't be a bad option, if healthy he can be a top ace, esp in a H2H league.

Top 4-

José Reyes
Roy Halladay
Félix Hernández
Zack Greinke

Last spot-

Hunter Pence - Keep him in a shallow league
Mike Napoli - Keep him in a league that uses multiple catcher spots or is 15+ teams
