Roy Halladay ($4)
Woody Williams ($4 ! he's cheap and check out his consistency over the past 3 years)
Brandon Webb ($1)
Aaron Boone ($1)

The the choice comes down to Oswalt ($11), Edmonds ($10), Bonds ($28), Brett Myers ($1) or Dimitri Young ($1).

Tiexera MIGHT do better next year (2nd year players often slump), but the position is rich with tallent. People that could deliver 100 RBIs and 30 homers include Pujols, Lowell, Rolen, Blalock, Chavez, Ensberg, Glaus, Ramirez, and Hinske. That's 9 players in a 12 team league... 3B should be cheap next year. That's why I'm not keeping Texiera.



No way would i keep Woody. He will be 37, and looks awful right now. I would keep Bonds, a good buy compared to the 35-40 salaries mentioned, and Edmonds, whos a steal at 10. Myers and Young for a buck are good choices, if you dont want to spend. I disagree that 3b is rich. Ramirez hits 240, Hinske hasnt proven he might have played over his head, Ensberg platoons, Glaus hits 250, Pujols isnt really a 3b. Rolen, Chavez, Lowell are the big 3, but they pale to the studs at other positions.

Maybe even Rich Harden. Right now I have Chavez, Sheff, Vlad, Maggs, Moose, Zito, and Harden. I've got the tough road ahead.


No way with 3 keepers would Harden even be a thought. To me, Vlad and Mags are locks, with Zito 3rd.
