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

    I drafted Chris Perez (STL-RP) with my Eleventh pick. What should I look for in the Twelth? I have 6 Bench spots open. I am thinking maybe getting another RP or a Starting Pitcher or maybe a 2B or 1B or Outfield. Loney is still available. Xavier Nady is also still available as a OF.

    C-Victor Martinez (Cle - C,1B)
    1B- Justin Morneau (Min - 1B)
    2B- Robinson Cano (NYY-2B) 3:3

    OF- Matt Holliday (Oak - OF)

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

    any of the first 3 OF's listed would be good choices
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

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

    I'd Go Gavin Floyd, if he's gone already any of those OFs you listed would be good. Percival I THINK should be TB closer again but his ability to stay healthy leaves a lot to be desired. Wheeler should step into the role if Percival cant.

    I drafted Xavier Nady (NYY-OF) with my Twelth round pick. What should I look for in the Thirteenth? I have 5 Bench spots open. I am thinking maybe getting another RP or a Starting Pitcher or maybe a 2B or 1B. Gavin Floyd, Chris Ray, Bronson Arroyo and Owings still are available.

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

    I know it's natural to want Reds on your team but stay away from Arroyo and Owings. Neither is going to get a lot of W's and I doubt their ERA's are going to be helpful, besides both should be available on the WW if either get off to a hot start. If you want another SP there are better choices out there. If I was you I'd go find a 2B or, ideally, a 2B/SS, not just because of Cano's shoulder but you have enough bench spots that you can have a backup for your MI's.
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    I drafted Felipe Lopez (ARI-2B,SS,3B,OF) with my Thirteenth round pick. What should I look for in the Fourtennth? I have 4 Bench spots open. I am thinking maybe getting another RP or a Starting Pitcher or maybe a 1B. Gavin Floyd is still available. Dan Wheeler is also available.

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

    I would look at one of the other STL RP's to bookend with Perez. Probably Motte, with Perez's shoulder being a question you might want to have that backup. I'd take Jurrjens ahead of Floyd or any of these guys if they are available...Slowey, Baker, Danks, Myers, Kershaw, Garza, Meche

    Ugh Gavin Floyd has 'Tom Gorzelanny' written all over him...

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

    My top 3 from your SP pool ONLY would be Wandy, Perez, and Buehrle..
