Mauer, Wright, M-Cab, Edmonds, Chipper, Prior, Vazquez, Lidge, K-Rod. Who should I take with my 10th? I'm thinking of Ryan, Hoffman, Carlos Guillen, Penny... Whatcha think?


None of them excite me but I would have to go with C. Guillen out of that bunch. Whatever you do, do not take another closer. 3 in the 1st 10 rounds is way too many. Too early for Penny as well.

I don't have any guys for SB... I was thinking to get a SS like Izturis for Runs, Average, SB.. will Guillen steal any bags?

Steals are easy to get late. Just fill out your team by either filling a need or going with the best available. I hope that you didn't want to take Izturis now. :-o Out of the players that you posted, Guillen is clearly the best. This might change if there are other solid players out there.

Nahhhhh not Izturis now.. c'mon gimme some credit! :-D

Wilkerson, Nevin, Uribe, Vidro, Lowell, Glaus, Garret Anderson, Brian Giles, Buehrle, Sabathia, Zito are some other guys available. You think I should get Ryan, and lockdown Saves? Ryan should help me out a lot with ERA, WHIP, and get 120 K's to boot, no? Or, just go with Guillen, and hope he repeats?

Whatever you do, don't go with a closer here. You will be able to lock up saves much later. Don't get worried when a closer run starts. You already have it there. 1 more closer and you're set. Don't waste a pick now. If you didn't have Wright or all of your OF filled, I might tell you to get Lowell or Giles. How many UTIL slots??

Back up.. don't know who to take... some guys I'm considering are:

Nevin, Kaz Matsui, Uribe

I'm thinking Kaz... don't know how well he'll do though. Too soon with pick 12.1?

I would think that there has to be better out there. In a bunch of my 12 teamers, Matsui and Uribe are still there in the 18th. Nevin isn't that bad here but is there really no better?? :-o

I'd go ahead and take BJ Ryan, No wait, He's on my Roster :-D Since he's gone I'd probably have to go with Placido Polanco. :-b

What suggestions do you have for my team? I know Kaz will be gone if I don't get him now, someone has their eye on him..

Should I grab another starter? Sabathia is the best available. Cordero, Takatsu are the best Closers available..
