1. David Ortiz
2. Carlos Lee
3. Kerry Wood
4. A J Burnett
5. Mariano Rivera
I would keep them in this order:
Thinking being: Pitching friendly keeper, I like Burnett better than Wood long and short term; although it's close. They're both about as K-prone and walk-prone as each other, I like Burnett's ballpark and offense better than Woods right now though.
Lee, simply younger and less-overweight than Ortiz. Ortiz is in a better ballpark. Pretty much even; wouldn't disagree if someone went the other way.
Rivera: his numbers are going one way, everyone else's on the list are going the other. In a keeper league, I'd always go with the guy on the upside than the downside.
