I'm not as in love with Chapman as everyone else is, he has more value as a starter than a closer, but the problem is that I don't think he'll work well as a starter.

I think they keep Chapman in the bullpen. Fantasy-wise he is less valuable to be as a starter.

1B-M.TEIXEIRA
2B-D.PEDROIA
3B-B.LAWRIE
OF-M.KEMP
OF-C.GRANDERSON
OF- Nelson Cruz
UTIL - HOSMER

SP-M.BUMGARNER
SP-C.HAMELS
SP-M.LATOS


I don't know about anyone else but I had Rosario in the mix at the end with CRUZ and HOSMER. I think their can be an argument made for him especially since you would be using Hosmer in your utility spot.

As far as Chapman. I just don't feel comfortable in a keeper league with him. They still don't seem to know what they want to do with him and the dead arm/fatigue issue or whatever they said it was concerns me.

Here's my 10

C-WILLIN ROSARIO
1B-M.TEIXEIRA
2B-D.PEDROIA
SS-J.ROLLINS
3B-B.LAWRIE
OF-M.KEMP
OF-C.GRANDERSON
OF-N.CRUZ :-t
UTIL-C.GOMEZ :-t
UTIL-E.HOSMER :-t
BENCH-R.DAVIS :-t

SP-M.BUMGARNER :-t
SP-C.HAMELS
SP-M.LATOS :-t
RP-A.CHAPMAN
RP-J.JOHNSON :-t
P-C.JANSSEN :-t
P-G.BALFOUR :-t
BN-K.MEDLEN
BN-H.KURODA :-t
BN-T.LINCECUM :-t
BN-R.DEMPSTER :-t

I also wouldn't be against throwing Teixeria back and keeping either Bumgarner or a closer, but I think heading into 2013 with Medlen and Hamels as your SP with Chapman closing is enough pitching at that time. I like Hosmer this year, but he can be reacquired. I still get hung up on Teixeria. Might throw him back, especially keeping Rosario, Rollins and Granderson. BA is already taking a hit.
