I have an idea about who I'm going to keep in these leagues, but I wanted to get some more input on these, if you guys would be so kind. This is of course assuming I can't pull off any kind of offseason trade to get better keepers than I have.

Code:
Danny Almonte's All-Stars (5 keepers, 5x5 H2H)

C - Geovany Soto (ChC)
1B - Miguel Cabrera (Det)
2B - BJ Upton (TB)
3B - Ian Stewart (Col)
SS - Jimmy Rollins (Phi)
OF - Curtis Granderson (Det)
OF - Corey Hart (Mil)
OF - Brad Hawpe (Col)
UTIL - Robinson Cano (NYY)
B - Chris B. Young (Ari)
B - Troy Glaus (StL)
DL - Carlos Lee (HOU)

SP - Scott Kazmir (TB)
SP - Rich Harden (ChC)
RP - Bobby Jenks (CWS)
RP - Jonathan Broxton (LAD)
P - Chad Billingsley (LAD)
P - Felix Hernandez (SEA)
P - Brian Fuentes (COL)
B - Javier Vazquez (CWS)
B - Ervin Santana (LAA)
B - Manny Parra (MIL)
DL - John Maine (NYM)


Code:
New Jersey Ueckerites (5 keepers, 5x5 H2H)

C - Russell Martin (LAD)
1B - Mark Teixeira (LAA)
2B - Chase Utley (PHI)
3B - Aramis Ramirez (ChC)
SS - JJ Hardy (Mil)
OF - Grady Sizemore (Cle)
OF - Matt Kemp (LAD)
OF - Brad Hawpe (Col)
UTIL - Raul Ibanez (Sea)
B - Robinson Cano (NYY)
B - Troy Tulowitzki (Col)
B - Miguel Tejada (Hou)

SP - Roy Halladay (Tor)
SP - Justin Verlander (Det)
RP - Bobby Jenks (CWS)
RP - Brad Lidge (Phi)
P - Francisco Cordero (Cin)
P - Roy Halladay (Tor)
P - Felix Hernandez (Sea)
B - Roy Oswalt (Hou)
B - Chad Billingsley (LAD)
DL - Aaron Harang (Cin)


With the first team, I figure my possible keepers are down to this list:

Miguel Cabrera
Jimmy Rollins
BJ Upton
Geovany Soto
Carlos Lee
Corey Hart
Curtis Granderson

I'm of the school of thought that hitting is about twice as valuable as pitching in fantasy, so I'm probably going to end up keeping all offsense, and just load up on pitching at the start of next year's draft. Upton won't qualify for 2B next season, so I have to consider him just as an outfielder. I could probably cross Granderson off that list, I could get that production from any of those other guys. I think it basically boils down to Cabrera, Rollins, Lee, Upton, and one of Soto or Hart. Do I take Hart because of the 25-25 potential, or do I take Soto because of position scarcity? Tough call.

As for the second team, here's what I have it down to:

Chase Utley
Grady Sizemore
Mark Teixeira
Russell Martin
Aramis Ramirez
Matt Kemp

I figure Utley, Sizemore and Teixeira are on the list, so I need to take two of the other three. Do I take Martin for position scarcity, Ramirez for some more pop, or Kemp for more speed?

What do you guys think? Would you consider taking any other players on my teams, other than the ones I listed as the guys I'm considering? Who do you think you would end up keeping in the end?
