I'm going to be keeping Votto (1B), McCutchen (OF), and Youkilis (1B (3B after 5 games).

The best available players will be;

1B - Tex, Fielder, Fielder
3B - Zimmerman, A-Rod
SP - Halladay, Felix

How would you rank these guys for MY TEAM, based on who I kept? If I take a 1B he will have to sit for the first 5 games of the season until Youkilis gains 3B eligibility. If I take a 3B or SP they will be in my lineup from the start as Youkilis can start at my utility position. So if this were you, who would you take?

I would consider Tex, Fielder, and Zimmerman to be the most productive fantasy producers on the board, but not much above Halladay and Felix. If I were you, since you have your CI spots tied up already, I would draft an ace (Halladay) and use it as an excuse to be a little more speculative on pitching late in the draft. SPs are really deep this year, but a truly solid ace is still pretty hard to come by.

I don't think you can miss with any of those guys, though.

Since you're in a keeper league, you might be able to help me out. Thanks!

I'd rank it more like this....

Halladya, Felix, Texiera, Fielder, Zimmeran, ARod...

I agree with cs3, hard to pass on one of the top two pitchers in the league.

So the final keeper lists have been submitted and the owner with Felix ended up keeping him.

The pitchers being kept are; Felix, Lincecum, Verlander, J. Johnson, Hanson, Carpenter - A lot of the top names.

Does this make the case to take Halladay stronger if he is there?
