12 team: 7 keepers
16th 184: Edinson Volquez
17th 201: Jeremy Guthrie

16 team: 5 keepers
19th 304: Tadahito Iguchi
20th 305: Justin Germano

I can't believe some owners were able to nab players like escobar and butler with their last picks.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

Nice, I'm with ya. For my 40 round ML keeper league my last two picks were Paul Byrd and Scott Downs. The stuff one can get really excited about right there.

12 team, 25 rounds

24. Carlos Gomez
25. Manny Parra

IMO, Carlos Gomez provides huge sleeper potential in the final rounds. If this guy earns the CF job, which i think he will based on amount of time he is getting during ST, he will provide 5-10 HRs with 40+ steals. Another reason i like him is that you can easily dump him if he is sent down. A lot of late round guys are hard to drop, such as potential closers. He wont be someone you will feel obligated to hold on to, but can provide great value with enough ABs.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that with injuries to some in brewers rotation, Parra will pitch 100+ innings this year.
