I agree with the last post as well.

Konerko definitelty don't keep out of that list.....

Next I would say Dickey.....moving to the AL east is going to hurt his numbers....but if you believe in him and that knuckleball, id say Kimbrel then

Dickey is looking good again early. The AL east is not what it once was...don't you understand that? And, which such few keepers *under 8* its not a good idea to keep closers even the top one. I can see the need to keep the #1 clsoer over a top 10 starter...I'd take a top 10 starter over a top 3 closer.

Ian Kinsler
Ryan Zimmerman

I agree with MagDog here. I think I would pick Dickey over Kimbrel too. That is really the only difficult part to choose.

I agree with MadDog....Closers are too hit and miss. Aside from Mo...no closer is near consistent enough to keep in this kind of a format.

Plus as for Dickey...If Tim Wakefield could live in the AL East for some many years and at such a late age for a pitcher...then Dickey may just prosper.

Pujols, Zimmerman, Kinsler, Harper, Kershas, and Dickey is the way I go. There will be closers to be had later on, you will be hard pressed to get a guy like Dickey there.
