5 Under 25

Indulge me if you will. You're starting a keeper league team and you can pick any five players as long as they are 25 or younger this year. Give me your list.

I wouldn't mind having Lincecum, Snider, Tulo, Longoria, and Billingsley (assuming his last few starts haven't been a mirage, which i am doing because i own him in a keeper)

That's sort of off the top of my head but i'll also give honorable mention to a few guys like the Upton bros, Hanley, Bruce, Kershaw, and Sandoval (who i'm also assuming will turn it around for obvious reasons)

Hanley is too old. He turns 27 in December. I'm curious (outside of the freak) if most would take a pitcher like F Her ahead of a position player like Tulo or J Upton and why?

Longoria, J.Upton and Heyward are locks....

I go with Tulowitzki and Kemp as the others.

I choose hitting over pitching always....

this would be unreal. Your outfield is set and have two very tough spots in 3B and SS already filled.
C- C Santana
C- Norris
1b- Encarnacion
2b- Altuve
3b- Donaldson
SS- Crawford
CI- Belt
Mi- Dozier
Of- A Jones
OF- C Gomez
OF- M Brantley
OF- J Pederson
OF- J Marisnick
U- K Bryant

P- F Hernandez
P- J Zimmermann
P- J DeGrom
P- Quintana
P- Buchholz
P- S Greene
P- Chapman
P- Gregerson
P- AJ Ramos

Ender Inciarte
Carlos Beltran
Colby Lewis
J Nelson
Alex Colome

Kemp and Heyward are both solid choices.

Man, it seems like Hanley is younger than that. Guess it's because he is still prone to bouts of immaturity that i view him as being younger than he is.

I'm not as high on F-Her as maybe i should be, but my keeper league does place emphasis on pitching because we use total k's and k/9. I would still rather have Tulo (and i do) over him. The fact he fills multiple categories as well as he does from the ss position makes him extremely valuable, imo.

As for Upton or any other outfielder, i'm not sure which way i'd go with a pitcher like F-Her. The outfield settings are position-specific so it would depend on how my roster looked overall. All things being equal, i'd probably go Upton.

I'd go with Lincecum, Heyward, Longoria, Upton, and McCutchen for pure talent, but there's a great argument as to why taking 3 OF as keepers and no infielders is a bad idea.

12 Team H2H, 4 unrestricted keepers
C - Mike Napoli
1B - Eric Hosmer
2B - Jedd Gyorko
3B - Todd Frazier
SS - Jhonny Peralta
OF - Ryan Braun
OF - Mike Trout
OF - Shin-Soo Choo
UTL - Brett Lawrie
UTL - Adam LaRoche
Bench - Austin Jackson
DL - Aaron Hill Hanley Ramirez

SP - Clayton Kershaw, Madison Bumgarner, Ubaldo Jimenez, Jhoulys Chacin, Ervin Santana
RP - Glen Perkins, Heath Bell, Jose Veras, Ernesto Fireri, Edward Mujica, Carlos Marmol, J.J. Putz

RCL - Cracking the WHIP - Admiral Trey
C - Yadier Molina
1B - Albert Pujols
2B - Jose Altuve
3B - Jedd Gyorko
SS - Jimmy Rollins
MI - Everth Cabrera
CI - Justin Morneau
OF - Jason Heyward, Shin-Soo Choo, Michael Morse, Nick Swisher, Ben Revere
UTL - Kendrys Morales
Bench - Garrett Jones, David Freese

SP - Justin Verlander, Cliff Lee, Ryan Dempster, Ubaldo Jimenez
RP - Jonathan Papelbon, John Axford, Glen Perkins, Ryan Cook, David Robertson
