Thanks -- I did some analysis on the other teams (projecting who I think they'll pick). I know Webb, Teixeira, Howard will be out of the picture for sure, Oswalt & Sheets are probably nots, but Billy is a maybe.
Here are the other teams keepers as I see them now:
Team 1, spent the whole year at the bottom & doesn't follow baseball too closely:
B. Fuentes, B. Lidge, C. Guillen, C. Ray
Team 2, he spent the end of the year trading up & tanking-- VERY high baseball IQ:
Team 3, not an involved player & doesn't have a high baseball IQ (may be replaced):
R. Ibanez, B. Jenks, T. Gordon, C. Sabathia
Team 4, my team:
Team 5, a very smart & active trader --he had the misfortune of taking many of my "trade-up" trades when he was in the hunt and now there is a lot of parity on his team. I have no clue who he's going to pick:
B. J. Ryan
C. Delgado, D. Uggla, B. McCann, M. Young, C. Wang, J. Smoltz, J. Papelbon, B. Wagner, Jo. Johnson, K. Rogers, P. Martinez, B. Arroyo
Team 6, pretty smart and active manager:
B. Sheets, S. Rolen, J. Damon, R. Cano, T. Hoffman
Team 7, very smart manager & a waiver wire hawk (he said last year he wouldn't consider trading Liriano, but with him injured I'm unsure if he'll keep him):
V. Wells, P. Konerko, F. Liriano, A. Dunn, M. Rivera, B. Wickman
Team 8, a baseball news hound and decent manager --I have a feeling he'll keep Aramis and Schmidt:
J. Schmidt, S. Kazmir, J. Giambi, T. Glaus, A. Ramirez
, M. Buehrle
Team 9, he traded his first two draft picks for improvements across the board and now I have no clue who his keepers will be:
Ha. Ramirez, J. Peavy, C. Cordero, J. Putz, H. Street, A. Burnett, N. Swisher, M. Cuddyer, Ra. Johnson
Team 10, the league champ. Smart manager with an eye for value:
D. Willis, J. Bonderman, T. Saito, A. Otsuka, J. Lackey, G. Sheffield
I'm going to try to go closer, starter, hitter, starter, hitter, but that will all depend on what everyone does.
I appreciate any and all suggestions on my roster.
