So, I won my 12 team H2H league last year (thanks Grey/Razzball!!)..this means I get to keep 6 instead of the normal 5. The stats we're using are R, HR, RBI, SB, K, TB, OBP x IP, W, QS, SV, K, ERA, WHIP. My team is below and I'm just having a tough time picking my keepers because I want to keep basically my entire team (especially my pitching). Any help/suggestions would be great. In case this matters, we're non-snake drafting this year so I'll draft last each round.

Starlin Castro
Carlos Gomez
Jason Heyward
Evan Longoria
Nate McLouth
Mark Reynolds
Anthony Rizzo
Wilin Rosario
Mark Teixeira
Rickie Weeks

Madison Bumgarner
Chris Capuano
Aroldis Chapman
Yovani Gallardo
David Huff
Jim Johnson
Mat Latos
Kris Medlen
Luis Mendoza
Max Scherzer
Travis Wood
Jordan Zimmermann

Hmm...going straight from Grey's rankings, he would have it: Longo, Castro, Heyward, Bum, Scherzer, JZ. What made you choose Tex and Gallardo over Scherzer and JZ?

I don't like keeping that many pitchers. And really you could sub Gallardo with JZ or Scherzer. They are all pretty similar. Big upside but no guarantee that they reach that upside. I still think Tex has a couple more years of being pretty good and with SP deep, go with the bat.

Of course if you want to look more long-term than ditch Tex and go with one of those other SP.

Cool, thanks...This is the first year (well, technically, second) of my first keeper...so I haven't put a ton of thought into keeper strategies yet

Hmm, I think I'd lean toward keeping another starting pitcher there over Tex. It all depends on your faith in Tex though - Muaddib has some faith and keeps him, I have less faith and toss him back.

I'd probably keep Heyward, Castro, Longoria , Bum-G, Zimm and Scherzer. Even if you don't want to keep three arms I'd rather take a flyer on a young guy like Rizzo than keep Tex for one more year.

From that list, I like the following as keepers. I prefer to lean toward offense, but I could see grabbing the extra pitcher (like Scherzer, Gallardo or JZim) over Tex. Those three pitchers are also close to Latos and I could seeing going in with any of them instead of Latos, but I have a slight preference for Latos.

Jason Heyward
Evan Longoria
Mark Teixeira
Madison Bumgarner
Mat Latos
