12 Team Mixed Roto, 260 budget (keeper league so most people had less than 200 budget in the auction, I had around 210).
Avg/Runs/HR/RBI/Steals W/ERA/Whip/K/Saves
This is a keeper league. My 8 keepers are marked with *

C - Matt Wieters
1B - Eric Hosmer *
2B - Robinson Cano
3B - Brett Lawrie *
SS - Starlin Castro *
2B/SS - J.J. Hardy
1B/3B - Paul Konerko
OF - Michael Morse *
OF - Desmond Jennings *
OF - Alex Gordon *
OF - Shane Victorino
OF - Jason Heyward
Util - Raul Ibanez

Bench - Lonnie Chisenhall
Bench - Yonder Alonso
Bench - Mat Gamel

P - Jered Weaver *
P - Zach Greinke *
P - Anibal Sanchez
P - Brandon Morrow
P - Vance Worley
P - Derek Holland
P - Ryan Madson
P - Javy Guerra
P - Mike Adams

I was a bit disappointing that I couldn't get a third closer, but they were drastically over-payed for. 2 closers is still solid since it's 12 teams though. I'm also probably going to drop Gamel for a 2b/ss player, and maybe pick up Oswalt to stash. I could also target Fuentes (looks like he might be the closer).

I think that you seriously punted on steals. You do not have one player in the top 30 for SB in 2011. That's going to be an issue. I would drop Alonso for a SB specialist. Sure, he's 1.5- 2 years younger than Gamel, but I like Gamel's upside way more.

Is Jason Bourgeois available? Dee Gordon? Pagan?

Oswalt is decent option, just beware his slider is getting less effective, he's probably only good for 150-170 IP, and his HR/FB ratio last year masked his declining skills. But I like him for one more year at least. What are your other options?

I actually thought steals would be fine. Jennings should finish with 40, and then I got a bunch of people should get 20 (victorino,lawrie,castro,), and then a few who will get in the teens (hosmer,heyward,gordon). The players you mentioned are not available since this is a 12 team league.

I guess that's possible. Here are what I think is reasonable

Heyward 12
Hosmer 13
Victorino 22
Lawrie 24
Castro 21
Jennings 34
Gordon 14

About 140 SB if they don't miss any time. I'd say you need about 185 to finish 4th in a roto league, as there are more steals out there this year. That is why I think you need a specialist. I'd trade Heyward for someone like Maybin or Gardner, as I think you have enough power. Is Crisp available?

There isn't that much reliable speed left in the draft. I'll try to target some players and see what happens.
