    No, and believe it or not I get Trout in the 17th, Kipnis in the 18th, Cain in the 22nd and Terehan in the 23rd. Both Cain and Terehan were cut in the playoffs and I acquired them as FA's. Tulo cost me a 1st rounder, but yes I have amazing value everywhere else. I traded away a ton of talent in the offseason to get Kipnis and 4 of the 7 top 27 picks (Verlander, Gray, Donaldson, Wainwright, Hanley, McCutchen and Uehara, everyone of those players besides Uehara would have cost me at least a 12th round pick)

    I get Myers in the 21st Round and Davis in the 20th, so I'm going to have to disagree.

    After all keepers have been chosen I basically ended up with the 1st pick, unless the guy who dropped Felix Hernandez doesn't end up re-picking him (in that case I'd take him). Out of these 3 whom would you draft: Bumgarner, Lee or Choo? It's a 10 team H2H league and these are my 7 keepers: Trout (LF,CF), Myers (CF,RF), Tulowitzki (SS), Kipnis (2B), Chris Davis (1B), Matt Cain (SP) and Julio Terehan (SP). I know I need pitching but I also have 7 of the 1st 27 picks in the draft and I am actually leaning towards taking Choo and feel their is plenty of pitching to pick up a few picks later. Thoughts?

    Keeper Question

    By trading them both I got 2 5th round picks (which should be picks #17 & #19 after the keepers, picks #51 & #53 overall) a 12th round pick and Kipnis at pick #183, instead of keeping McCutchen at #13 overall and Hanley at #28 overall (if I cut Tulo they would have been picks #8 & #13 with the keeper move up each year) and it would have cost me picks #3 & #7 after the keepers are picked (#13 & #28 overall) and I'd have no extra picks high in the draft like I do now. I feel keeping guys at the top of the draft can only meet expectations and keeping guys as late as possible in the draft adds the most value, guess I'll find out in the next couple of months.
    Also, I already traded Gray.

    I'm in a 10 team, H2H league where we keep 7 players each. Each player is kept in the round they were drafted or if they've been kept before they move up 3 rounds each year. Currently I'm keeping: Trout in the 17th, Chris Davis (20th), Matt Cain (23rd), Julio Teheran (22), Wil Myers (21), Jason Kipnis (18th) and Troy Tulowitzki (1st).
    I traded away Verlander (1st) & Wainwright (3rd) for Kipnis (18), a 5th round pick & Sonny Gray (Free agent whom I already traded for a 10th round pick). I also traded McCutchen (1) & Donaldson (23-free agent) for Bumgarner (2nd) and a 5th & 12th round pick. Also I traded Hanley (1st) for a 5th round pick.
    Am I missing something or should I keep the 7 I selected because of the rounds I get them instead of keeping Bumgarner and hoping to just redraft him with what will probably be the 2nd pick after all keepers have been finalized. I know Teheran and Cain are inferior to Bumgarner but in rounds 22 & 23 I feel like I'm stealing them.
    Also I have Rosario (19th) and Lawrie (23- Free agent), should I try and shop these guys for more picks or just redraft them earlier than I normally would as i have 8 of the first 25-30 picks with all the moves I made and not keeping most my high draft picks. As is I'm done drafting after round 13 of 24.
