I'm a little biased but I believe my team is loaded. I have Harper on my bench and someone who wants him. Obv, Harper's value in a keeper league is very very high. The team that wants him would no doubt keep him. Myself, I will have some very tough decisions to make when keeper time comes around. So, looking at my roster, who would your 3 keepers be? If Harper was not one of your keepers, what kind of pitcher would you look to get? (the team that wants him has Roy Hallady/Shields/Beachy and already said they were not going to trade Halladay) Would either Beachy or Shields be worth Harper?
Thanks for all the help!

Yes Harper is worth Shields or Beachy (my preference would be Beachy) and you are lucky if you get that much for him. I realize Harper is doing very well and better than most expected but there is still plenty of time for him to hit some bumps before the season is over. He is by no means a lock as a keeper in a 3 player keeper league unless that team was in complete rebuild mode.

A little early to figure out who to keep for next year. Need to know what Pujols does for the rest of the year along with a number of other guys. I would expect Upton and Kemp to be locks but 3 months of baseball could change that. You do have a very good team with a lot of keeper potential players but have to get to at least August before you start worring about who to keep.

You aren't going to keep Harper and you aren't playing Harper so get the best deal you can for him and look to win it all this year.
