I had to decide my keepers via Sabermetric Drafting. I kept Pujols and lose my first round pick, I kept Kemp and lose my 6th round pick and Greinke and lose my 16th round pick.
Other option was keeping Adrian Gonzo and losing thr 5th round pick, which i was goin to do if i got the 1st pick of the draft so I could have drafted Pujols one overall and started off with a team of Kemp, Gonzo, Greinke, Pujols and would have had a pick in the 2nd-4th round.
But i am happy with my keepers and I have the 5th overall pick. I dont find out the other teams keepers until the day of the draft
my scent?...like making love to a lumberjack
<TACKLE> i will ngata give you a bj raji
<+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
<+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

After this Im stumped...
Ive got Fielder, Howard, Longoria, Mauer, Lincecum, Cabrera, Teixiera, Crawford, Wright all bunched up. How would you rate these guys for my league?
Your 1st round pick is all about risk.
You can't win your league in the first round, but you can drastically increase your chances of losing it.
Fielder, Tex, and Howard are probably the least risky.
Cabrera isn't really risky at all.
Lincecum might be the highest possible reward, but pitchers/HIM is just plain risky business.
I personally don't like those 3B that high. Wright has admitted he's not a power hitter in the new park, Longo is a diva (just my preference to stay away).
Mauer WILL see a drop in power and he's always an injury risk.
I go back to the first group - what are you trying to build your team around? HRs and RBI? Average? With those four first basemen, it's a tossup - and a good one - so I'd just pick whoever you are a fan of the most...
-I do think Tex will win AL MVP.
-I believe Miggy will stay out of trouble and if he does, he's surely worth any pick in the draft, but he's still young and obviously not the most stable human being.
-Fielder and Howard are just monsters. I prefer Fielder because he'll deliver a better BA more likely but you can't go wrong with either.
But if you project Lincecum to stay healthy and do is usual - by all means...
Alright I drafted my 5x5 H2H team in a 10team league. I think I destroyed the draft.

PS, thanks for the advice gpngc.... my draft went the top 5 as per usual then Kemp, Tex...so I picked Prince at 8.... after that Howard, Longoria, Lincecum, and Crawford went.... I already picked up my 1B, so I went Mauer in round 2. Think it worked out perfectly.
