Here's my dilemma: I can keep five of these seven players:
Lance Berkman
ARod
Dustin Pedroia
Ian Kinsler
Carlos Quentin
Brandon Webb
Tim Lincecum
I can only keep one SP max. There is no penalty for keeping a player drafted in a higher round, and it's not an auction league, so there is no monetary concern with the players kept. Basically, it's pick your top five. The league is a 10 team roto 6x6 (OPS and Holds). Draft is inverse to finish this year, so I pick 8th next season (out of 10). Any advice would be appreciated.

You have to keep Arod, Kinsler, Quentin, Berkman and one of those SPs. Lincecum is real juicy and I could understand you wanting to keep him. This year he had 265 Ks, for crimey sakes. But Webb is a perennial Cy Young candidate. Starters aren't very safe, but Webb's one of the safer ones. Also, Lincecum threw lots of pitches this year and a lot more innings than last year.

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.

With regard to Lincecum vs. Webb for next year... I wonder if people are going to be expecting 18 wins from Tiny Tim, again. I don't see the Giants getting any better in 2009. And while I don't have the stats at my fingertips to back it up, I'm at least curious about how much run support Lincecum got than, say, Cain. Regardless, if Lincecum's ERA goes up to even the low 3s, I have a hard time imagining him notching nearly as many Ws. But maybe I'm wrong. All I'm trying to say is that I agree with Grey about Webb being safe/proven/etc., and those are important commodities in fantasy. But also of value is that he plays for a better offensive team.

Thanks. Those are the keepers I had pretty much decided upon, but it's always nice to have corroboration.
