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?

A-Rod: 2nd
Hanley: 4th
Braun: 5th

(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.

Felix Hernandez for Andrew Mccutchen, who's got the better end of that deal all else being equal?

Felix. Runs/SBs are a little easier to find than a top-tier ERA/WHIP/Ks guy.

Don't know how deep your league is, but I like Felipe Lopez (StL) going forward as a poor man's replacement for McCutchen. He's been leading off and scoring a bunch of runs while filling in for Freese and I think he could hold that leadoff spot even when Freese comes back since he can play all over the infield (should qualify at 2B, SS and 3B).

it's a very shallow league(only 8 teams). i'm pretty far ahead in steals and still think i could win that category even without AM. the guy i'm trading with is way ahead of his innings pitched pace and already has Halladay and Josh Johnson on his team. seems like a good trade for both of us.

Trevor Cahill has pitched unbelievably this year, especially lately, but (fun fact!1) he hasn't struck out more than 4 batters in a game since June, it really limits his value. is his current low era a complete fluke or is it maintainable? he seems like a classic sell high to me. any thoughts?

Paging PornoGil. Gotta establish my keepers in my big money league within the next few weeks. Pretty standard scoring. I usually value power more than anything else. Took home the title last year, and looking to repeat. Keep 5 from any rounds, 1 from rounds 20-25, and 1 from rounds 26-30. Lose the draft spot they are kept in.

Automatics: Votto: 18th, Hamilton (i think he's probably automatic here) 11th.

Other Options in order I like them: Hanley 1st, Buchholz 13th, Weeks 17th, Braun 2nd, Carpenter 11th, Liriano 14th, Romero 15th, Hanson 11th

Round 20-25 options: Cueto 20th, Lilly 23rd

My ONLY option in 26-30 (i traded anything decent away last year during my run): G. Jones 30th.

I hate to give up my 1st, but if Hanley has a bounce back year by his standards, he is well worth it. I also hate to give up on Braun, but that would mean losing my 1st and 2nd. If Weeks stays healthy again I think he is a no brainer in the 17th, but that's a big if. He was one of my top scorers last year. Hamilton scares me this year a bit too. It's usually hard to make a pre draft deal and give up a guy for a draft upgrade, but it's possible. I'd like to score a better 26-30 guy as well in a trade, if possible. Thoughts?

I haven't begun my draft prep :geek: yet, but my initial reaction is that you have things pretty well figured out.

Votto, Hamilton, HanRam, Buchholz, Cueto, Jones look like pretty easy choices. The decision on the final spot is tough and depends on what you think will be available in the 2nd round. Are you getting a top-25 player with a 2nd round pick with this setup?

I think your league is really closer-friendly (?)... maybe you give up Braun's rights and use that 2nd rounder on a top closer since that seems to be your only glaring need. No idea who you choose between Weeks/Liriano/Carpenter/Hanson/Romero though.

Every year there are certain players that I end up drafting in every league. This year I have completed 3 out of 4 drafts and those players are Bobby Abreu, Jonathan Sanchez, Tyler Colvin, Chris Perez and Brandon Webb. I'm not sure this bodes well for my chances of success.

Had my first-ever auction draft today (a week after a test run with the same guys). I wrote an article about it immediately afterward, but scroll down to the bolded list and you can see my team. I think I did ok, but I wound up with one too many SP, which seems to happen every year. My strategy essentially "worked" in that I kept my finances high for the middle rounds and was able to out-bid everyone for second-tier players. That doesn't necessarily mean that those second-tier players will pan out, however.

Some guy offered me Delmon Young for Ubaldo Jimenez in a keeper auction league, like I'm some yokel from Duluth. Granted I overpaid for Mauer in this league and flaunted my Twins douchebaggery....but Ubaldo for Delmon? Dissssssrespectful.

I countered with Matusz for Delmon. Don't think he'll do it.

Don't feel bad. He offered me Delmon and Phil Ka'aihue for Choo. Then Rodney for Kimbrel after Rodney lost the closer's role. There were osme other head scratchers too, but I think I deleted the emails so I don't have a trail of 'em. Like, Ka'aihue for Heyward.
I'd like to see a pair of boobs that would prompt me to write home. Maybe Scarlett Johannson level quality? "Dear Mom and Dad, I saw an awesome rack today. They were perfect. Everything else is fine. Love, BD79."

He was offering Rodney to me too. in fairness i was asking for closers. the thing is i don't think anyone would want to roster that dood even if offered him for free.
