In our 5x5 keeper league in its 5th season, we get to keep 5 plus 1 rook/late pick, total of 6. Pitching is very thin as always and pitchers like Mulder, Mussina, Colon types are being kept. In fact, based on Yahoo rankings, the best available pitchers would be Pavano, Maddux, Livan, Buehrle, Escobar, Vazquez, Clement, Ru.Ortiz, Carpenter, Lilly, Thompson, Morris, D.Wells, Beckett, Zito... Burnett, Wright, Brown, Od.Perez will also be available.
That being said, my best players:
Sheets (late pick)
I have to keep the top 4 listed... I was leaning on keeping Beltre and Blalock, try to get a couple of pitchers in the first round. But there will be Beltre, Ichiro, Matsui, V.Wells, Blalock , Pierre, Sosa type hitters available if I keep Clemens and Wood instead.
What is my best strategy here? I am leaning more and more towards keeping Clemens and Wood instead now with the lack of depth in starting pitching. THoughts?
