5X5. keeper league. keep 4 guys in the round they were drafted. after different circumstances in the offseason, i have the 1st and 2nd overall pick in the redraft this year. i have no 2nd rd pick, 2 5th rd picks (b/c im keeping 2 guys in the 5th) and 2 6th rders. in a year where pitchers' value has gone down, i am ironically keeping 3 of them, just because i cant see giving them up based on value and potential. in a head to head matchup, it will be hard to beat this rotation. i am keeping

5th-kemp
5th-cliff lee
6th-kershaw
16th-cain

i am also redrafting youk (who will get 3b eligilibity) in 5 games (1st week of season) with the 1st overall pick. it looks like holiday (OF) and ryan howard will be available as well. my question is, in my situation, who would u take next? it is being said that OF is shallow this year, and it is. so kemp and holiday would be a great start. but do u pass up howard, when most of the top 10 1b are being kept and the next 1b available would be kendry, morneau (both health issues), pena, konerko, butler, etc..? also possibly available would be josh johnson or lincecum. trading pitchers away in this league is tough, so im going with these keepers. who would u take with the 2nd overall?

Howard. OF isn't shallow unless you're running 5 OF spots.

I'd rather have Holliday and then roll the dice with someone like Morales, Morneau, Dunn, Butler, etc. If Howard puts up another year like he had last year, he's not worth drafting him 1st (or 2nd)

last minute trade took howard out. down to nelson cruz, holliday,ichiro, kinsler,morneau. since none will be a keeper in the 1st rd, who will have the best 1 year league...

in an awesome turn of events, i was able to trade for arod. so now, do i go ahead and draft youk for my 1B, or do i stick with holliday,ichiro or nelson cruz. besides youk, im down to the morneau, konerko, butler and ike's of the world...
