Interesting Hootie, so you would get rid of Youkilis in order to keep Haren and Gallardo as well as Beltre. Can you explain why?

I think all 3 are ahead of Youkilis.
Talent, age, injuries.
He's 33, averaged 120 games the last 3 years, and never played 150 ever.

makes sense. and he might be available in the draft for me. So I would have a shot at picking him back up.

Hammers, my first impression is that since you don't have a pick until the 4th round you would want to keep as much talent as possible. I'm assuming dollar values get assigned by round a player is drafted and escalate for the following season? I don't see any huge bargains eihter, so that furthers my thinking of keeping the best players.

Haren $27
Gallardo $21
Cain $18
Pedroia $35
Granderson $25
Beltre $19

For the final $5 it would depend on your league type. If roto then keeping Bourjos makes sense for the stolen bases, but if not I'd keep Chipper as a backup 3B and Capuano and hope for another sneaky good season. Youkilis and Marcum instead of Beltre and the remaining $5 if you want to gamble on Youk's health (Beltre is no ironman either).

Good luck. Help me? viewtopic.php?t=440601

Thanks Lenny6 for your suggestion. The dollar value tends to have a direct correlation with the round the player is drafted in, but not always the case. It could be low because they are coming back from an injury or they are an unproven rookie for example.

It seems like the going theme here is to drop Youkilis and keep the high-end SP and bats.

I would dump Youkilis as well, getting older and too injury prone.

$27 - Dan Haren SP

$13 - Tim Hudson SP
$6 - Edwin Jackson SP ;-D

$19 - Adrian Beltre 3B ;-D
$17 - Kevin Youkilis 1B/3B
$13 - Jeff Francoeur OF
$11 - Logan Morrison OF ;-D
$11 - Marco Scutaro SS
$10 - James Loney 1B
$8 - Lucas Duda OF ;-D
$5 - Peter Bourjos OF
$3 - Chipper Jones 3B
$1 - Jarrod Saltalamacchia C ;-D
$1 - Miguel Olivo C

I like Haren alot, but not keeping him allows you to keep Jackson, Morrison, Duda and Salty. So if Haren is more valuable to your team than these guys, then go the other way.
