Freeman in the 6th maybe? he's got the potential to be really really good, but 1B is deep.

I've never done a snake draft for baseball so I'm probably not the best to comment on that haha

Keep Headley at $4, Soriano at $5, Viciedio $4 or Willingham $6.

We have to keep 6 keepers and mine aren't the greatest. Is Ellisbury worth keeping at $23?

Would you take any of those other ones over Wieters at $15. That price just seems so high for him and catcher is deeper than it has been.

Probably not. I'd stick with Wieters.

Anyone have interest in joining a new dynasty league? We have 10 right now but would like to get 2 more to make it a 12 team league. It's an auction league, 15 keepers per year, 5 x 5 H2H (HR, RBI, R, SB and OBP) (ERA, WHIP, S, QS and K/9). $20 buy in

I'm in a 4x4 12-team AL-only auction keeper league, 13 hitters and 10 pitchers. $260 cap. I need to submit my protected rosters in a week, and I have decisions to make about Mike Napoli( $16), Vinnie Pestano($10), Carlos Pena($7), and Nolan Reimold($7). I need to pick up 1-2 closers which will be at a premium, as well as an elite bat or two. Situations I am considering:

* I keep all 4 - I have $130 leftover to draft a C or 1B (since Napoli qualifies for both), MI, CI, SS, 3B, one OF, and four pitchers. I'd have an average of $13 to spend on each position, but then I have to put up with Pena's average and Reimold/Napoli injury concerns

* I keep all but Pena - $137, but then I need a utility guy and the injury concerns are still there

* Keep Napoli and Pestano, drop Pena and Reimold - injury concerns are there with Napoli and I have to get a OF and utility guy, but I get rid of my bad average guy in Pena

* Drop all 4 - I have $169 for 14 positions, average of $12 per guy

I'm leaning towards keeping all 4 since it appears it makes most fiscal sense and I gain an average of a dollar per position I need, but the injury concerns and Pena's terrible average give me cause for concern. Thoughts?

I'm being offered Jay Bruce ($22) for Hamels ($31) straight up. Can't keep Bruce past this season, same with Hamels.

Edit-Did the trade. Probably done making moves before our keeper deadline, so roster goes into the draft looking like this...



Pretty happy with that

A deep sleeper for me that shouldn't even have to be drafted is Andrew Cashner. With his stuff he could have a great run through the league in him, in his cup of coffee last year had a k/9 over 10 and a 3.06 xFIP, now obviously small sample size and all, but most projection systems have him pretty damn close to those numbers this year.

He was very good in limited playing time last year. I remember specifically because I was big on him when he was with the Cubs, so I paid special attention. Good one.
