Tough call man. If I had to pick right now, I would keep Kipnis and Morrow. Hopefully, Hosmer's stock has dropped enough you can snag him in your draft/auction.

Please help?

I completely forgot about another option...
I can also keep Harvey in the 24th round. With the ways hes pitched since his callup, anyone think hes the best choice as far as pitchers go?

Elite 100 K closers are a shallow position, Morrow and Fister just aren't the type of pitchers I'd want before Jansen

I would for sure keep Craig over Hosmer in this situation... especially since Craig is cheaper.

I might just go Craig and Rios.

after taking a closer look I realize that would be silly, so I would just go Craig for sure, and then probably Morrow or Jensen after that. I know it might seem crazy to keep a closer... But to keep someone that is as dominant as Jensen for just an 18th round pick isn't bad at all. He gets overshadowed due to Chapman and Kimbrel, but he is possibly equally as dominant.

I know a lot of people probably didnt see it, becasue I just now edited the OP, but I forgot to include Matt Harvey as one of the pitcher options.
Would anyone keep him in Rd 24 over Morrow (12) or Jensen (18)?

He has looked like a potentially dominant #1 during his admittedly brief MLB career so far

I think Jansen and Craig are your guys. If you like Hosmer, you can draft him next year in Rd 15-20 based on what you've said his value in your league is. Craig is easily Rounds 7-10 next year. Morrow is a decent pitcher to keep as well, but again, I think he'd be easier to draft next year than Jansen.

Anyway, that's my logic.

By the way, have you thought about going with someone in lieu of Justin Upton? He probably falls below 4th round next year.

Ya, in a league that limits starts by SP to 10 per week Jansen is going to a pretty coveted asset with his 100K potential.
But i think keeping Harvey might be even better because the risk is nonexistent (very last round) but the payoff could be pretty huge for several years to come.

Good point regarding Upton. Even up to a month ago keeping him was a no brainer for me. Now im really questioning him.... hes basically turning into his brother with fewer steals.
Other options:
Hanley Rd 2 (the renewed SS elg and LA's suddenly ridiculous lineup make him pretty attractive)
Matt Moore Rd 9
Or just keep both Hosmer and Craig, cutting Upton

Jansen and Craig if Craig gets playing time, but we will only know that early next year. I'd keep both for now.
