Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
is an 18 team league...who would you keep. H2H w/W-L for each category. pretty mainstream categories.
I came in 5th place and the reason I have so many "young and unproven" players on my team is because I picked them up for players I knew I definately would not keep. You never know which top prospects will get hot and win a spot out of spring training...plus in an 18 team league you're rosters aren't exactly the highest quality all the way around where I had to hold on to the other players.
for future reference, you went way way too young last year. When you only keep 5 players having that many prospects kills you since you are forced to throw them all back. In this format there are only about 2-3 prospects a year who should be even considered as a keeper.
I'd personally take Cespedes, Lawrie, Butler, Johnson and Wainwright. Both pitchers are in contract years, and I'd trade them this season once they establish their value.
