    • Draft a SS or OF with steals. Such as Jeter.You can always get SP's later. Get as many OF's with 20/20 probability. Look at 2009 stats.

    • I would keep Mauer,Howard,Kinsler,Crawford,Rivera,Nathan and Johnson.

    • Mauer

    • you could just about take 7 of the first 8 on that board, and price is in consideration as well, but probably not.

      tough choices on that last one, i'd have to flip a coin between rollins and upton - it would be upton to keep if OF wasn't a deep position.

      I wouldn't keep closers, unreliable and you can draft some in the first couple of rounds if you want since your offense will be great

    • mauer,howard,kinsler,crawford,upton, rollins , gallardo

    • my seven would be...Mauer, Howard, Zimmerman, Rollins, Crawford, (the last 2 are tough) probably Nathan and Rivera...even though I'd give a lot of consideration for Markakis. People in my opinion are way to high on Kinsler and Upton, it would also be tough to see Lester, Kershaw and Gallardo get cut loose. You might consider dropping one of the RP's and keep either Lester or Gallardo. The reasons i chose my selection are...Mauer is the top C'r, and added power to his game and lost nothing on his avg. Howard could very well lead the majors in HR's, Zimmerman gives you solid stats except SB's. That's where Rollins and Crawford come into play...R's and SB's. Then your pitchers, you know what you get with them.
