12 teams Keeper league (2 keepers. I kept Kershaw and Felix instead of Kershaw and Braun. I let go of Braun in fear of suspension. Kind of regretting that decision but oh well.)
Weekly lineup changes
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, CF, RF, Util
SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P

C Miguel Montero pick 10.111
1B Eric Hosmer pick 13.154
2B Dustin Pedroia pick 3.34
3B Aramis Ramirez pick 6.63
SS Ben Zobrist pick 5.58
LF Alex Gordon pick 9.106
CF Adam Jones pick 4.39
RF Hunter Pence pick 14.159
Util Torii Hunter pick 17.202
Bench Michael Morse pick 16.183
Bench Starling Marte pick 21.250
Bench Marco Scutaro pick 19.226
Bench Corey Hart pick 24.279

SP Clayton Kershaw (Keeper) pick 1.10
SP Felix Hernandez (Keeper) pick 2.15
RP Jason Motte pick 8.87
RP JJ Putz pick 12.135
P James Shields pick 7.82
P Hiroki Kuroda pick 11.130
P Wade Miley pick 15.178
Bench Derek Holland pick 18.207
Bench Andrew Cashner pick 20.231
Bench Kyuji Fujikawa pick 22.255
Bench Wei-Yin Chen pick 23.274

I feel like I got some good value late in the draft. My question areas are Hosmer at 1B and whether Starling Marte can breakout this season.

I really like your middle infield, I think that we're looking at a great rebound year for Pedroia, and Zobrist is a very solid option with a lot of flexibility. Hosmer I'm not so sold on: I think its 50/50 whether or not he can put it together this season. That being said, 1B was thinner this year than usual, with MCab moving over to 3B and Teixeira hurt. You should have enough there to get you through. On Marte, I would be looking for a backup. I think he's still more of a 2014 option.

Help on mine?

Being the tenth pick, you definitely should have kept Braun, especially having Kershaw. Even if Braun gets a suspension, you could have had him again next year.

Hosmer should be the kind of guy that doesn't win anything for you, but won't hold you back. your outfield are all decent players, but no studs in a stud filled position (see my comment above on Braun). Your pitching staff rocks, had you not had Felix, and got an average pitcher instead, it would still be a solid staff. Look to trade Felix for a stud outfielder.

I should've mentioned that I didn't keep Braun because it was also my last year to own him. I would've had to trade him away before the playoffs to get any value for him. Or kept him through the year and he would've entered the draft pool next year.

Like you said, as far as my OF goes, not a lot of stud guys, everybody seems right even with each other.
