Well, Andy Laroche and Anibal Sanchez have both been claimed now.

So, I dropped Aubrey (I'm already set at 1B with Morneau and Dunn) and picked up Liriano.

Also, we can't pick up recent draft picks until they are actually signed.

Jason Kubel is being stashed away on a team's DL.

I am still debating what to do with the rest of my team.

some advice:

pick-up Petit if he's available, he's great

and Tulowitzki and Devine were two of the first to sign this year.. tulowitzki - think bobby crosby playing @ coors ... devine - probly getting called up this year and the braves need a closer

Dustin Pedroia is rising like a bullet. if you don't add him, someone else will

Liriano is a nice pick-up, but if you know the twins at all, he might wind up in the bullpen (at least for the beginning of his career) .. Scott Baker is a better pick because he's gonna be SP and one of the best ones too (severely underrated)

Mathis is a major dissapointemt, Callaspo and Sowers are nothing special .. my 2 cents

I am not completely sold that Pedroia will be any better than Callaspo. And where does a guy like Howie Kendrick fit in? He's put up some impressive numbers in A ball, although he strikes out more than he walks.

Petit worries me because he doesn't have overpowering stuff, but he seems to be doing very well.

I didn't realize that Petit struck out as many batters as he does. Granted it's AA, but it's still impressive.

Honestly, I'm not sold on Kendrick or Pedroia over Callaspo. I just think that Kendrick is going to strike out a ton.

However, I'm going to sit on Callaspo and Sowers for a little while before I make a decision.

I'm going to keep an eye on Alex Gordon and Justin Upton and hope that I can grab one of them when they sign.

Forgot to mention in my previous post that I did indeed drop Hinckley for Petit.

A new development is that Jeff Niemann has recently become available.

What would you do about Callaspo/Sowers? Would you keep them or drop them? And if you'd drop them, for whom? As it stands, my minor league roster now looks like this.

Carlos Quentin - OF, Ari
Yusmeiro Petit - SP, NYM
Jeff Mathis - C, LAA
Francisco Liriano - SP, Min
Jeremy Sowers - SP, Cle
Alberto Callaspo - 2B, LAA

did the Canadian Sluggers have 6 of the first 7 picks?

I would drop Callapso for LaRoche, and drop Sowers for Neimann. I don't love Liriano, and would drop him for either Scott Baker (closer to ready) or Anibal Sanchez (more upside).

i would drop callaspo and mathis.....

i would pick up troy patton and jeff niemann.....

hang onto sowers... i had several chances to see him pitch earlier this year, and he is just as dominant as anibal is without the devastating stuff.... sowers done a great job of keeping hitters off balance no matter what the count was..... sowers also throws 4 pitches pretty well even though he only throws his heater in the 80s... he is definitely worth a spot on a minor league keeper team for now....

Another SP listed who you may want to grab now is gio Gonzalez, LHP for CHW. He is smoking in the minors leagues and is a second year guy. He looks like a real good one to me, and personally I could have taken him or Liriano and chose him instead. He is falling under the radar in a lot of drafts, and will probably be real well known next spring. Get him now
