This. I would also say, with the extra positions I might consider keeping Votto over Arrieta. In a league with extra spots for bats assuming you have an IP cap those bats become more valuable than pitching.
the 10th 2b last year was Kipnis at 97, 10th 3b was Moustakas at 100, 2b is not a shallow position in top 10. Altuve would be my last choice. I'd probably go Arenado, with betts and pollock a close 2nd. but hey, you can't go wrong I guess either way
if you can take two, then Arendado and Betts. Pollock is tempting, but spreed ages fast given it's a dynasty I would go with the guys that have more power potential. I could see going Pollock though.
Gomez - he plays in a hitter friendly park, he's got a good lineup around him and in front (altuve, Correa, Springer +). I'm not a huge fan of either given age, but they are both good.
depends on what other team is shooting for. If they are looking to compete this year then maybe trout + Arrieta? If they are looking to rebuild then maybe Trout + odor + another young upside play?
4th Year league, 7x7 with OPS, XBH, QS and HLD. 7 to 9 keepers. Teams finished in 4th, 8th, 17th and 19th last year. Couple of things help with rebuilding quickly including the keeper format (keep less than 9 get picks in supplemental draft before those that keep 9) and it's a standard draft - last place team picks first every round.
Good league, very competitive. If you are just a casual player, move along. Have full rosters, e-mail tantra1232003 at yaho for more details.

Decent player, worth a flier in NL only leagues. My best guess is that due to injury or performance that Pete O'brien gets first crack at LF (with peralta going to right). They'll probably bring in a speedy/defense 5th OF not on the roster as the last back up, so it'll take two injuries/bad performance to see a whole lot of Brito this year.

Doubt it. Rumors that he is an idiot, worse than Puig. I think if the Dodgers could get anything for him they would trade him, but every team knows he's a douche. Shame, he could hit .270/20 if he was given everyday ABs at 2b.

You better ask for more than Rizzo for Correa. Nothing in his profile suggests he's a fluke. Great BB/K rate, BABIP was actually low, he could easily hit .300. Batted ball distance was almost 300ft, so the power is real. This kid will challenge harper and trout for best player in the game this year, I'd be taking him 3rd maybe even 2nd in Dynasty leagues.
12 keepers, AL only league so pickings get slim in draft very quick. 35IP limit each week.
Team A: Carrasco
Team B: Rodon/Moncado/Plouffe/Moreland
Team A would replace Moncado as a keeper with Souza. Plouffe and Moreland would not be keepers to begin with.

He seems valued right. he got caught stealing 9 times last year, so maybe the speed is going? I think he could got 20/20 again with a decent BA, if it was the late 3rd rd I'd probably look to pick him up. Houston should have a pretty good offense and he should hit high in order.

Filled, sorry. Still have two openings but I'm giving the managers till after superbowl given they've been in the league for 6 years.

Worth a flier. There are some things to like about Maybin, but given his FB% is so low he'll never be a big HR guy, I think 10 is his max. The speed and Rs are where he might make value. I could see 25SB, so the upside might be .260/10/25 which would be pretty good. There is the downside though with injury or performance issues we've seen from him. Castillo I think just has more HR and AVG upside, but hey last round can't complain about either.

.368BABIP last year, due to decline. doesn't hit LHP well, maybe can improve, maybe not. .260/15 seems like a reasonable expectation, don't expect same amount of HRs. Perhaps some upside, but not enough to warrant say top 200 selection.

the deeper the league, the more valuable SS vs. OF. I'd put yours in this order: Correa, Seager, Bogaerts. i'd offer Bogaerts for Betts yes, maybe even Seager. Not Correa. I'm not as high on springer, but springer for bogaerts might not be a bad deal. what do others say?
