Commissioner Corner Message Board
I'm allowed to keep 2 IF, 1 OF and 2 P.
I'm basically 100% sure I'm keeping Verlander and Cain as my two pitchers, although I might consider keeping Latos over Cain, if he keeps up his recent streak of good outings. I also have Kennedy, who put up 20 wins just last season and some solid closers, but it isn't very wise to keep a RP.
The wildcard here is Daniel Straily, seeing as he's one of the best prospects in all of baseball, but I can probably draft him late next season if I want him.
As for my OF, I wish I could keep more than 1, as I have Braun, Holliday, Granderson and Bourn. Since I can only keep one though, I think Braun is the obvious choice.
In the IF, I'm torn on who to keep. I'm a Blue Jays fan, so I'd like to keep Lawrie, but it looks like his style of play is going to cause him to be injured quite often.
I acquired Teixeira mid-season and would like to keep him, but I also have Starlin Castro, who is keeper worthy as well.
Ben Zobrist recently gained SS eligibility, giving him 2B/SS/OF. It'd be nice to have a guy with that kind of versatility next season, but like Straily, I can probably just draft him next season.
So who would you guys keep:
Two of Verlander, Cain, Latos, Kennedy, Straily (Hanrahan and Jansen)
Two of Teixeira, Lawrie, Castro, Zobrist (Pierzynski, Mauer, Cuddyer and Freese)
One of Braun, Holliday, Granderson or Bourn
Verlander and Cain.
Castro and Lowrie.
Braun and Bourn.
Gives you bankable pitching across the board. Locks in significant upside at Short and 3rd.
Outfield gives you 50 bombs and 70 stolen bases with a combined .300 AVG.

I agree with you about everything except for the outfielders.
Since I'm only allowed to keep one, I'll obviously be keeping Braun. Even if it were two, I'd be keeping Holliday, seeing as he has almost 60 more Fan Pts in our league.
I'm guessing you were probably thinking this was a H2H league, in which case I probably would keep Bourn, just for his SBs and good batting average.
