First, let me start off by saying I'm a big fan of the site. It's a first year yahoo H2H 12-team league. Six keepers, no monetary values assigned, anyone is fair game. Without further ado here is my team :

C - Doumit - Pitt
1B - Prince - Mil
2B - Utley - Phi
3B - Jorge Cantu - Fla
SS - Tulo - Col
OF - Quentin - Chi
OF - Rios - Tor
OF - BJ Upton - TB
Utl - Victorino - Phi
Utl - Ian Stewart (3B/2B eligiblity) - Col
Bench - JJ Hardy - Mil
Bench - Mike Cameron - Mil

SP - CC - Mil
SP - Dice K - Bos
SP - James Shields - TB
SP - Matt Cain - SF
SP - Jair Jurrjens - Atl
SP - Gio Gonzalez - Oak
SP - Harang (i hate him) - Cin
SP - Gallardo (DL) - Mil
RP - B Wilson - SF
RP - B Fuentes - Col
RP - J Hanrahan - DC
RP - B Ziegler - Oak
RP - J Lewis - Cle

Obviously, I have a pretty good idea about keepers 1-4 but 5 + 6 get a bit more difficult. Having said that, I would appreciate your input regarding whom to keep.

Thanks in advance,
Manny

First off, you gotta keep Harang! Kidding.

Prince, Utley, BJ Upton, CC, Quentin and Rios. In that order. Doesn't seem that tricky after the top four. What are you thinking that makes it tricky? Are you thinking you shouldn't keep Rios? And perhaps lean on a rookie like Stewart or Gio? Or maybe Dice-K or Shields? Well, I'd put them at Shields and Dice-K, but you should be able to find starters in the draft where a player (Rios) that is capable of 20/30/.280 is a lot harder to find. Also, keeping pitchers usually isn't the way to go and I feel like without the constraints of dollar values or rounds, you really should weigh the hitters more heavily. Hope this helps.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Grey,

I greatly appreciate your help. Obviously, I was thinking Utley, Prince, CC, Quentin were definites. However, even though Upton is less than spectacular, i figured he would be kept as well. I was thinking about Stewart, Shields, and Dice K as the final keeper. Stewart has emerged lately, plus he will likely have 2B/3B eligibility. But thanks for your insight. In addition, my trade deadline is next week any suggestions with regard to improving my squad for the playoff run?

Thanks for all your help
