I am in a 12 team league where we keep six. Assume 5x5 scoring. The only wrinkle is we keep 1 LF, 1RF, 1 CF instead of three OFs.
I am keeping 1. Trout (CF/LF), 2. Kipnis, and 3. Darvish. After that, it gets dicey. I have Posey, Hosmer, Justin Upton, Matt Holiday and Cliff Lee. Lee kicked #$%$ in our league last year, but pitching is so deep I'd rather not keep another arm unless I am hosed with my other keeper options.
Thx man. All of the above 1Bs you mention will likely be off the board with the exception of Rizzo. Hosmer and Posey will probably be my 4th and 5th keeper. I like Holliday in left field, he is really consistent. Not sure if Upton ever gets back to his 2011 form.
