    10th pick, 5x5 league

    Standard 5x5 11 team league, I'm hoping to get Jimmy Rollins at 10. Otherwise, it's gonna be Ryan Howard or Prince Fielder.

    In the second round (#13 overall), it's going to be a choice between Ryan Braun, Albert Pujols, and Johan Santana. Any thoughts on either selection?

    Rollins>Fielder>Howard

    Santana>Braun>Pujols

    I removed Pujols from my lists because I think he goes down at midseason.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Funny, that's exactly how I had them ranked. If I could get Rollins and Santana with 10 and 13, I'd be ecstatic.

    Ina 5x5 league, I think I would go with Fielder. He is going to scored about 15-20 runs more than Howard, and hit .285 to Howard's .265. They will both hit 40-50 HR. The only stat Howard will be better in is RBIs.

    I actually had to make that decision last night. I had the 12 and 13 picks. I took Fielder over Howard. More of a gut feeling. I would've been happy with either.

    Re: 10th pick, 5x5 league

    Here's how it worked out:

    1B P.Fielder
    2B I.Kinsler
    SS C.Guillen
    3B E.Encarncion
    OF M.Holliday
    OF C.Granderson
    OF C.Hart
    DH L.Berkman
    C G.Soto

    SP R.Oswalt
    SP F.Liriano
    SP D.McGowan
    SP D.Lowe
    SP J.Guthrie
    SP Z.Greinke

    RP F.Cordero
    RP B.Lyon
    RP G.Sherrill

    BN V.Wells
    BN J.Hamilton
    BN O.Cabrera


    I think I need to move either a SS or an OF for some pitching. I'm considering the following three trades:

    Guillen for Hamels
    Granderson for Bedard
    Wells and Lowe for Halladay

    Of these three, which move do you like the most/least? Also, I'm considering dropping Guthrie and/or Greinke for Volquez and/or Cueto. What are your thoughts on that? Thanks in advance.

    Wells and Lowe for halladay isn't bad. You have Wells on the bech already and Halladay is a big upgrade over Lowe I would think. I haven't looked at the numbes so I'm not sure but my initial gut says yes for that one.

    Thanks for the input. The guy is asking for Lyon instead of Lowe, making the deal Wells and Lyon for Halladay. I'm leaning towards pulling the trigger, even though I'd lose some saves. Thoughts?

    PECOTA loves most of your team. Kinsler at second should be a steal.

    Even Edwin shouldn't do too badly. I would try to swing a deal for Ryam Zimmerman if you can. He should have a huge year.

    Eh your gonna be iffy on saves as it is. Sherril will get 30 if he's lucky, that's if the Giants manage to win a game. Lyon should be solid along with Cordero, but I think if you were to lose one of the guys you might find yourself lacking in saves. That's just me at least, I'd be a little timid. I'd try and work the Lowe deal.
