I'm almost wondering if Melky could come at a discount next year... I'd speculate if the price was right...

Evan Longoria and Justin Upton. I'm in a keeper league and if they are as high (3.20 and 3.50 respectively) as they were to keep last year, I'll have to think long and hard trying to find the right deal for them.

Someone mention Ardolis Chapman. I won't keep him as a closer, I don't keep closers. However, he becomes very intriguing option if he's plugged into the starting rotation next year... :-?

If Upton's HR total stays below 15 he could fall out of the top 4 rounds which is a place I'd be very comfortable drafting him at. From the latest top 50 though it seems like some still like him as a top 20 player. He very well could be, but I'm avoiding drafting him there.

AVOIDING AT ALL COSTS:
Longoria
Tulo
McCutchen
Beltran
Willingham
Fiers
Dickey
Sale
Peavy
Burnett

Guys who exploded this year that im considering even at an increased draft price:
E5
Trout
Bumgarner
Price
Morrow

Guys I really really dont like but I might have to keep due to their keeper draft round:
Justin Upton (4th)
Hosmer (22nd)
seriously wtf do i do there

Avoid - expected to go 6-12 overall
Pujols
Hamilton
Batista
Tulo

also avoid
JUpton

possibly target (on other avoid lists)
Longoria - he might fall pretty far and I'll take him in the 25-35 range
McCutchen - the avg will fall back to .300 but he's a .300, 20+/20+ player that could go 30+/30+
Wright - he's back and he'll be one of my targets

His career average coming into this season was .276 - there's quite the possibility he falls well below .300 next season.

I don't see any reason why he can't be a .300 hitter going forward, give or take a little. His BABIP took a hit last year which dropped that average but he was a .286 hitter in his first and second year in the league. He takes walks and doesn't strike out a lot, at 25 years old with all the tools, whats not to like? I think I'd be a little surprised if he wasn't in the .290-.310 range next year.
