I must keep one pitcher this year and I think Livan should be the one.

This is the points earned last year of the top pitchers in out league (HTH) (K's & IP are real important - wins are not so much) 6X6 including holds:

RJ - 780
Johann - 730
Ben Sheets - 715
Jason Schmidt - 688
Schilling - 664
Oswalt - 657
Clemens - 630
Livan - 620
Pedro - 612
Buerhle - 610
O Perez - 586

Do you think Livan keeps it up this year with the current configuration of the Nationals and their new ballpark?

Others to consider: BJ Ryan. Westbrook, C Lee, Reitsma, Lieber, Kazmir, Francis, Contreras, Percival

Out of those you listed the only one i'd consider keeping over Livan is Kazmir and that's because he's so young that he makes an excellent keeper.

I would keep Livan. RFK figures to be more of a pitcher's park than Olympic--there are a number of threads on this if you do a search.

As for Kazmir, I am never a fan of keeping high-ceiling guys who will not contribute for a while, at least if you want to win now. Hernandez will help you next year, but the very best case for Kazmir is that he can give a Hernandez type contribution in 06 althought the likelihood is that this will happen later or maybe never.

I like Livan a lot. We use 13x13, incl CG and SHO and he's done quite well in those categories for me the last couple of years and I'm hoping to snag him again. Runs up lots of IP.
