    12, OK:

    Tex
    Hanley
    Longoria
    Martin
    Markakis
    Berkman
    Webb
    Ellsbury
    KRod

    After that, it's up to you. I am not a big fan of keeping closers, but KRod is worth keeping with what else is left to choose from. Might as well keep Lidge too I guess.

    with 12 keepers out of 16 players it's easier to just name the 4 that i wouldn't keep and that would be: burrell, harden, and broxton for sure. imo it's a tossup between lidge and oswalt for the last spot. i don't like to keep many closers since that position is so volatile but you aleady have 3 sp's so it's up to you.

    Oswalt for sure... only other option would be Lidge, but there's no reason to think he won't have 45 saves next season and have sick whip, Ks, etc ...

    Re: Rookie Keepers (Baseball)

    could you package a couple together for a better (and safer) player? like burnett and oswalt for someone like johan santana or lincecum. or burnett, oswalt, and kinsler for a relatively safe top 10 starting pitcher and utley.

    Re: Rookie Keepers (Baseball)

    I ended up with my team going like this going into the draft:

    1 Hanley Ramirez
    2 Brad Lidge
    3 Francisco Rodriquez
    4 Mark Teixera
    5 Ian Kinsler
    6 Russell Martin
    7 Evan Longoria
    8 Nick Markakis
    9 Brandon Webb
    10 AJ Burnett
    11 Jacoby Ellsbury
    12 Curtis Granderson
    13 Clay Bucholz

    I traded Carlos Zambrano for Granderson and Bucholz.

    Thanks for the input.
