I posted this for my league last year & it was a nice help seeing everyone's different opinion so I thought I'd try and get a little fantasy discussion started as fantasy baseball approaches so close

I'm in a 12 team standard 5x5 head to head league, where you can give up the picks at the beginning of your draft to keep up to 5 players from the previous year. My year end roster was:

Position Players
Jay Bruce
Chone Figgins
Matt Kemp
Miguel Montero
Hunter Pence
Manny Ramirez
Jose Reyes
Pablo Sandoval
Joey Votto
Rickie Weeks

Pitchers
Brett Anderson
Trevor Cahill
Johnny Cueto
Zach Duke
Kevin Gregg
Zack Greinke
Juan Gutierrez
Luke Hochevar
Daniel Hudson
Mat Latos
David Price
Chris Perez
Fernando Rodney
Justin Verlander
Brandon Webb
Carlos Zambrano

I've got it nailed down to 7 or so I'm choosing from, but any other advice out there? :)

You going with Bruce or Pence (or keeping neither). Or both?

320

It's possible neither

I think I'm for sure keeping Votto, Kemp, & Reyes

After that it's down to Weeks, Price, Greinke, Latos, Verlander as my major decisions.. but I'm also tempted to throw Bruce or Pence in there.

It'd be really hard for me to let Bruce go.I think I'd rather have him then Kemp.

Bruce, Kemp, Votto, Price and Greinke would be my keepers. Your team has quite a few players that would be tough to drop.

Votto - #1 round talent
Reyes - #2 round talent and position is then
Price - Ranked 12th pitcher in Yahoo
Weeks - Top 5 second baseman
Verlander - Ranked 13th in Yahoo.

Greinke is rated higher in Yahoo (7), but is a higher risk in my opinion than Verlander. besides when it's all said and done they will be about the same in every category if Greinke can stay out of the mental hospital.

In the end you have 3 stars in the infield and 2 pitchers in the top 10 at seasons end. I think you can get comparable outfielders to Kemp and Bruce once you start drafting.

Kemp is likely a top 10 and Bruce is a top 20 OF in almost any league.If you take into account their age and the fact that it's a keeper league I think you have to keep 1 at least.Not to mention that you have to start at least 4 OF every day in just about every fantasy league.There's not going to be much too comparable once you get past your first round or two.

I can see keeping one of Kemp/Bruce and dropping Verlander for that exact reason(keeper staus being young).

Just one word of advice. In any keeper league I draft Mike Stanton. If not already owned pick him up. He won't be available again for at least the next 10 years. Sorry if i got off subject.
