Can I consider NOT keeping any of these guys in a league where you lose the draft pick of the round the keeper was selected in?
(Also keeping Carpenter 19th and Votto 22nd)
Generally, you'd like to keep players from later rounds (obviously), but these all seem too good to pass up. I hate to give up 3 of my first 5 picks, but I think I have to. Other options: Hanson 15th, Francisco/Fuentes/Hoffman (closers are EXTREMELY valuable in this league) 4th/11th/13th, Lester 8th. I suppose I can try a pre-draft trade....
I think Hanley, Braun, and Votto are easy, even moreso if you can keep them in 2011 and beyond as well. Would be tough not to keep ARod, too. I'm going to blatantly ignore your point on closers in your league and casually dismiss them as options [/guy who is keeping Marmol in his main league]. The Lester/Hanson/Carpenter decision is tough. I honestly don't know. I'm probably not valuing the round # as much as I should, but I'd probably pick Lester. Entering his prime, big K numbers, less of an injury concern than Carpenter, more proven than Hanson.
