    Grady Sizemore/Brad Lidge

    I am in a 10 team keeper league and 2 decent players are currently available on FA. They are Kosuke Fukudome (OF) and David Reese (3B). We are allowed to keep 5 batters (any position) 2 SP, and 1 RP. This is a team I took over shortly before the draft this year, it finished last last season (so I got to draft 1st).

    My team is as follows;
    *K* means keeper I inherited
    *FA* acquired via free agency
    *D* acquired via draft
    *T* acquired via trade

    C Joe Mauer (Min - C) *D*
    1B Michael Cuddyer (Min - 1B,OF) *K*
    2B Dustin Pedroia (Bos - 2B) *K*
    3B Martín Prado (Atl - 1B,2B,3B) *D*
    SS Álex González (Tor - SS) *FA*
    OF Austin Jackson (Det - OF) *FA*
    OF Johnny Damon (Det - OF) *D*
    OF Bobby Abreu (LAA - OF) *D*
    Util Grady Sizemore (Cle - OF) *K*
    Util Vladimir Guerrero *D*
    BN Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B) *T*
    BN Juan Uribe (SF - 2B,3B,SS) *FA*
    BN B.J. Upton (TB - OF) *T*

    SP Josh Beckett (Bos - SP) *K*
    SP Ricky Romero (Tor - SP) *D*
    SP Ervin Santana (LAA - SP) *D*
    RP Joakim Soria (KC - RP) *K*
    RP Rafael Soriano (TB - RP) *D*
    RP David Aardsma (Sea - RP) *D*
    P Ryan Franklin (StL - RP) *D*
    P John Lackey (Bos - SP) *K*
    P Brad Lidge (Phi - RP) *FA*
    BN Shaun Marcum (Tor - SP,RP) *D*
    BN Doug Fister (Sea - SP) *FA*
    BN Derek Lowe (Atl - SP) *D*
    DL Jorge De La Rosa (Col - SP) *D*

    I was thinking of dropping Lidge for either of those 2 for sure. But should I give up on Sizemore and drop him for Fukudome? I know Uribe might be an obvious drop but I keep him because he is my only other SS eligible player for when Gonzalez is out.

    I think I did well with what I inherited, I actually sit 1st place (barely) after 4 weeks. I won 3 matchups and tied the 4th.
