I'm in a real-player sim league that's about to undergo an expansion draft. Each owner is allowed to protect five players; then one is selected and five more can be pulled back. My most valuable players probably are:

Carlos Zambano
Noah Lowry
Tomo Ohka
John Patterson
Aaron Heilman
Cory Lidle
Clint Nageotte
Billy Wagner
Ramon Hernandez
Carlos Delgado
Ryan Freel
Vernon Wells
Ken Griffey Jr.
Willy Mo Pena

So which five of those guys should I protect?

I would go with these four for sure

Zambrano
Wagner
Delgado
Wells

For the 5th, I'd probably go with Lowry but possibly Patterson or Hernandez

However, most of my experience lies in 5x5 roto not real player sims

I'd definitely keep Carlos Zambrano, John Patterson, and Noah Lowry. The remaining two are up to you, but I'd definitely keep these three pitchers. Patterson in RFK is a great fit and Lowry is a true stud in the making.

I'd probably hang on to Billy Wagner and Carlos Delgado, but I'm not typically a big fan of overpaying for closers or firstbasemen.

Zambrano, Wagner, Delgado, Wells, Pena due to his projected 30 hr season.
