    Choose 4

    I'm in a money keeper league and I'm starting to think about who I should keep for next year. I need to choose 4 players, it does not matter if they are pitcher, hitters, whatever. Ten team league, standard roster size and stats (5x5 roto), I narrowed it down to anyone that might get any interest.

    My options

    Morneau
    Aaron Hill
    Troy Tulowitzki
    Kevin Youkilis
    Carlos Beltran
    Matt Kemp
    Curtis Granderson
    Dustin Pedroia

    Matt Cain
    Cole Hamels
    Javier Vasquez
    Mariano Rivera

    I'm leaning towards: Morneau, Kemp, Beltran, Tulo

    right now I would go with Morneau, Tulowitzki, Kemp, Pedroia
    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.

    Just curious why not as much love for Beltra? Do you guys think his injury will hurt him that much? And why Pedroia? I almost didn't even mention the fact that he was an option.

    He's just getting old. Pedroia is now a lock for a ton of Runs, he matches Beltran in SBs, and he hits for a higher BA. Sure, Beltran has more power and gets more RBIs, but Pedroia plays a scarce offensive position...

    Hey Stephen,

    My picks for your 4 kepers would be: Morneau(money in the bank); Youkilis/Beltran(tough call b/c Youkilis is the safer bet but Beltran may offer better stats if he can play all season); Kemp(superstar written all over him for years to come); Rivera(Mariano keeps getting the job done in elite fashion- can't turn this future HOF'er loose but age could be a factor any upcoming season- I keep him for 2010).

    Good Luck Stephen!
