I can see why you were in 11th place if Berkman is even being considered a keeper. What kind of pitchers did you have if you're not even considering one?
Longoria and Kemp are obviously keepers. Hopefully Kemp gets back on track for you (and me). Those 2 are solid pieces to build an offense around.
Then you are picking 2 out of the following 3: Rasmus, Stanton, and Ellsbury. Both have their strong points. Rasmus is a bit more balanced with 20/20 potential. Stanton is all power, and Ellsbury is all speed. Ellsbury is coming off an injury. I think Rasmus, being the most balanced of the three, is a definite keeper.
So then it's down to Ellsbury and Stanton, so it's up to you. Do you want the speed, average, and runs that Ellsbury could give assuming he comes back from injury well? Or do you want the power of Stanton? Sometimes lineups can affect your decision.
Pedroia, Youk, Adrian, Crawford?
or...Hanley, and then crap (haha, hate to put it that way, but it's partly true).
I think I'd rather roll the dice with Ellsbury (plus Rasmus/Longoria/Kemp get you a good power start).
