Commissioner Corner Message Board
need to keep 5. whichever player i decide to keep gets drafted in the round they were selected in last year. Example, a 7th rounder in the draft next year gets drafted in the 7th round this year.
Also, you can use your last round pick to keep someone you got off waivers. With that being said, which 5 should I keep based on ability and draft position value?
J.D. Drew--21st round
Gavin Floyd--last round
I think its clear you have to keep Lincecum and Zambrano on the pitching side. As`far as hitters Id keep mags, soriano, mags and roberts...relief can always be picked up, but second base is at a premium, roberts will lock down that spot.
Responding to your league rules referred to as 'crap' by an earlier poster, it strikes me that you must work from the bottom up. Even if Holliday is worth a first round pick, you have a good shot at getting him with YOUR first round pick. So he's a guy you Do Not keep.
You do keep your late round picks who did well and look likely to do so again. To wit:
Keep Jay Bruce, whom you would otherwise have zero chance of getting with your last round pick This Year.
Keep J D Drew, who played like a 6th round or better last year, and will be gone long before the 21st round this year.
Keep the Mexicutioner, Soria. You won't ever find a Top 5 closer in Round 16.
Keep Lincecum. How often can you draft the defending Cy Young winner in Round 13?
And then there's Brian Roberts. One of the top 3 or 4 2B's, and you can have him in Round 5? Gotta do it.
Hey, you're welcome!

Thanks, thats the insight I was looking for. I agree with just about everything, although I don't know if I have the heart to keep someone as inconsistent as Drew. I've never been in a league like this before, but I do think it's an interesting way to do it.
