I drafted Alexei Ramirez in Round 23 last season. For whatever reason, in week 3, another owner dropped Joey Votto. I quickly scooped him up, he remained on my team the rest of the season.

This is a keeper league... whichever one I choose, I give up Round 23 in our 2009 draft in March...

Alexei is 2B-SS-OF eligible... but the following 2B's will be available in the draft: Cano, Pedroia, Uggla, Kelly Johnson, and Alexei again if I let him go back.

Votto is 1B eligible... the following 1B's would be available to me based on my draft spot: Derrek Lee, Delgado, Atkins, Pena, and Loney.


I am very high on Votto this year and believe he outperforms any of those 1B's I mentioned. I also believe I could re-draft Alexei in either round 4 or round 5 (In Round 5, I have 2 picks due to an off-season trade).

If I kept Votto... my keepers would look like: (You keep 6 max)

Grady Sizemore Round 2
Matt Holliday Round 3
Evan Longoria Round 21
Joey Votto Round 23
Tim Lincecum Round 6
Chad Billingsley Round 12

Appreciate your opinion Grey...


Another question...


Is your opinion high enough of Alexei Ramirez in RD 23 to keep over Holliday in RD 3?

And I have Billingsley and Gallardo both in RD 12, I'm currently keeping Billingsley, any reason to switch over to Gallardo?

I'd stick with Holliday. (It's not an easy decision though.)

I'd stick with Billingsley.
