12 Team 11 player Keeper League.(5x5) C,1b,2b,mi,3b,CI (5)OF's & (2) DH's.

Def Bats: Justin Mornaeu, Dustin Pedrioa, Joey Votto, Adam Lind, Jason Bay, Andre Either are my Definite Bat(s).
Pitchers: (10 Total) Cliff Lee, Jurjens

Need to decide which 3 to select out of these options (others I will target for trade).

Aramis Ramirez, Alex Rios, Carlos Lee, Wandy Rodriquez and Max Scherzer? Any help is appreciated. I love this site.

Grey, league also includes 3 minor league keepers; I have Hellickson, Chris Carter (A's), Scott sizemore, Michael Brantley, Jarrod Parker, Ike Davis and Chris Heisey:
I've been holding on to Parker for two years, but should be able to redraft him given the surgery. I figure I keep Hellickson, Carter and one of either Sizemore or Brantley. At first I was leaning Sizemore, but keeping Carlos Lee over rios means I have zero speed, so now I'm leaning Brantly for some sagnof if he is in the majors to start the year. Do you agree with the 4 choices? If so am I correct to keep brantley over sizemore?

Four choices? You said three keepers. Slightly confused, but I'd keep Brantley, Carter and Hellickson.

Thanks Grey; I meant to suggest the four players I took out of the entire group; and then eliminate the least valuable from there. Keeping Brantley confirmed, thanks again.

Grey,

Does enough time remain to reverse Jurjens demotion due to the early MRI? The news seems like it was a real precaution given training camp hadn't even started yet. I already had to decide between Jurjens make up and Scherzer stuff (plus his injury risk), is this enough to follow Scherzers talent and hope for the best and let someone else take on Jurjens present and future value?

I'd let someone else take Jurrjens.

Grey,

First is it okay to keep using the same post? I was thinking earlier that even though Hellickson is probably my best prospect, usually hitters have a better chance of making an impact their rookie year. Hellickson most likely will lose his rookie eligibility during the season, leaving me with a nice prospect not proven enough to keep without really having an impact on the 2010 season. If Scott Sizemore wins the 2b job and starts the entire year, at some point I will need to use my bench and can plug him in with the chance to get some stats. I would then use the waiver wire for a need to fill in pitching. Any credence to this thought?

Also, have a deal in place to trade Moreau for Matt Holiday. Good move right even though I have a lot of OF’s?

It's fine to keep using the same post... Might even make it easier to reference things. I'd want Holliday.

re: Sizemore -- There is credence to that though. Hellickson might be better in the longterm, but Sizemore will be better than him sooner vs. later.
