    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    Gallen, can you provide a list of players available? Not all of them of course, maybe 10-12 you are considering

    I like Capps, Bell and Hanrahan as closer options.

    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    I would probably go after a closer here. My choice would be Capps but you can throw several of those guys in a hat and just pick one. I would also be looking at another SP, Harang is an option. Here are some other names I would consider if they are still available Morrow, Garza, Scherzer, Danks, Josh Johnson, Bedard, Verlander, Wang, Lilly, Kershaw

    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    I drafted Aaron Harang (CIN-SP) with my Sixth Round pick. What should I look for in Seventh? I am thinking maybe getting my RP or a Starting Pitcher? Or should I look for bench help? Young and EE and a few good Pitchers are left.

    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    This is how I would go. Of course Capps could go next so if you were feeling like you needed a reliever next all of that would change. I really like JJ Hardy but you already have 2 SS's. Don't get yourself into the home team trap and reach for somebody like Owings or Arroyo. Are any of the SP's I listed above still available? How about Pablo Sandoval (multi-position eligibility), Choo, or Adam Jones?

    Capps
    Wells/Young
    Gordon
    Qualls/Devine/Bell

    Ted Lilly is by far the best pitcher on that list IMO...

    Re: Draft advice needed. I just took over a keeper team.

    I'd go after Danks, Lilly, Jurrjens, Johnson, and Kershaw. Lilly is likely to get you the most Wins and K's this year but he's also 33. If you think you can get Lilly now and then Kershaw or Danks later, I'd go that route.

    Kershaw and JJ Hardy are gone. There are seven picks before I pick again.

    Yep, just read that this is a dynasty league so Lilly's age would be a factor. When I pick a dynasty team I usually try to put together the best team possible for year one anyways...
