I like your keepers as of right now... Not shabby at all... Trout does make everything look better though... I'd consider Altuve and Wilin for a better 2nd baseman (if there is one)... Morrow and Desmond for a better SS (again, if there's one)... Something along those lines?
OK. I finished 4th last year with a pretty new team (thanks royce!) so I guess I can't complain, but weeding out the kept guys from the rankings just reminded me of how frustrating it is that there's no penalty for keeping anyone in this league - some of the keepers some teams have are incredible. Though I'm keeping Trout and Strasburg so there's that.
Anyway, with that off my chest, bearing in mind that I'm picking 11th of 14 this year in what is essentially the 11th round, who do you like from the 1st 12 available guys?
1. Pablo Sandoval
2. Jimmy Rollins
3. Ike Davis
4. Aramis Ramirez
5. Alex Gordon
6. Hunter Pence
7. Jonathan Papelbon
8. Jake Peavy
9. Danny Espinosa
10. Jason Motte
11. Mariano Rivera
12. David Ortiz
I'm thinking any of the 1st 6 would be pretty sweet? PS seems to think so...
Couple of other things - it's almost time to take a closer, no?
And given that I'm keeping Stras, Zimm and Morrow, does 2 from the Kuroda or Parker tier and 1 from the Estrada tier make sense to round out the staff?
