OK, so we have my rookie keeper decided, but I also get to keep 2 position players and 2 pitchers, what would you guys do?
Top 4 Position Players:
I am leaning towards keeping Braun, Hanley, Volquez, and Beckett. However, I've been kind of leaning towards taking either Teixeira or Hamilton recently over Braun. Any advice?
Might depend on where Teixeira goes in free agency, but as of right now I agree with your choices.
