Tough one. I usually lean toward all offense for keepers, but you have such a massive rotation, I have to say keep some of it.

Kipnis is the last one in but I like him more than Zimmerman. Wouldn't really have a problem with either one though and Craig would be #3.

I agree. Plus, already having Wright makes this an easier decision.

I am a little surprised at the Kipnis following. He had a nice season, but over Zimmerman or Craig or Morse and I already would be keeping a 2b in Pedroia?

I would keep a max of 2 SP's only. Do you an IF spot for Zimm?


2b: Pedroia
3b: Wright
SP: Kershaw, Weaver

These four for sure. The "safe" route would be Zimm and Zobrist I think. Morse and Craig could be the homerun picks though. I don't think I'd keep Zimm without a starting spot though.

We start an IF and Util, so there is a starting spot for him. I tend to agree with keeping 2 SPs, but I think Cain offers too much value to let walk. Needless to say I am going to try to do a 2 for 1 to upgrade a bat but the league is extremely trade hostile so I can't rely on that.

this gives you the option of best 1st base or OF with the 1st pick w/ Craig
When asking for roster advice in these pages, remember there are thousands of different sets of league rules & many different active roster settings. If you want the best replies, be sure to include your leagues particulars in the original post
