Keeping 8 players for 2012(rounds1-8)
--These 4 are locked in:
--I need 4 more from this list:
We select 1 "franchise player"(player must be selected within 2 yrs of 1st MLB AB or IP) and he can then be kept there forever.
--My Franchise keeper is Carlos Santana.
Youk, Meeks, Stubbs, Buch.
This way, you have 3B and 2B locked up. Plus, you have a solid start to your starting rotation and a solid closer.
I think Clay comes back strong this year, but you may be able to draft him later. That said, of the remaining players, I think Jair and Melky get drafted in Rounds 1-8. A Rod will too, but you have Youk.
I think keeping Storen to dominate mainly one category isnt such a bad plan, it pretty much frees up at least one roster slot for another SP or really any other position for that matter. It means you can roster one less closer, no?
So by that logic, why not keep Melky Cabrera over Maybin or Stubbs?
Melky Cabrera in 2011:
.305 AVG in 658 AB's.
102 Runs, 18 HR's, 87 RBI, .339 OBP and .809 OPS
Is it SB's alone? Then why not keep Storen for mainly one category?

drop cruz..switch with Youk. ..bum..stubbs..hardy..weeks..drop storen( I'm a huge fan but NEVER KEEP SAVES...if they're that important to you..fine but)..switch with Buchholtz(it wont get worse, and if he's a 4 or 5 PLEASE.pts,pts,pts)..Pitching is the key and you'll have time in you're draft to find bats but with QS,WHIP, you need the more reliable starter
Arod, Youkilis, Weeks, and Jurrjens. You've already got two solid SP and a great young Closer, but Cruz is injury prone so I would load up elsewhere. When these three are healthy, they should give you a solid offense. Cain and Grienke are solid enough that you can take a gamble by keeping Jair staying healthy.
