I know it's conventional wisdom given how thin SS is, but I just don't see Tulo as a top-6 pick. I also don't see Cano as a top-10 pick.
A 10-team mixed league is hopelessly shallow. I know why they're doing it, but it's not really very interesting when replacement level is an above average MLB player.
@Chris_Rinaldi: @ESPNFantasy I would not draft Braun or Granderson in the top 10, let alone top 5.
especially if Joey Bats qualifies at 3B
Right now, the fifteen I'm leaning toward keeping are: Ryan Braun, Carlos Gonzalez, Cecil Fielder, David Wright, Starlin Castro, Brett Lawrie, Carlos Santana, Yovani Gallardo, Matt Cain, Ryan Zimmerman, Mat Latos, Matt Garza, Adam Wainwright, Paul Goldschmidt, and Jonathan Papelbon.
The guys on the outside looking in are: Nelson Cruz, Shane Victorino, Jordan Walden, Jhoulys Chacin, Chris Sale, Yunel Escobar, Kenley Jansen, Dee Gordon, and John Danks.
What do you think? Am I keeping the right guys?
Either way, your team is stacked.
With 15 keepers slots, are you assuming that there will still be a lot of bulk closers available that you skim through?
I'm guessing one of them must have had a Ellsbury/Kemp/Verlander combo or something.
Without know the innings cap in your league...
And I'd probably let Cecil go. The comeback is really unlikely at this point.
Jansen (whom I suspect will close by year's end, with gaudy K ratios)
Why don't you 1000 IP minimum guys have a higher minimum? Isn't mine closer to reality for one season's worth of baseball?
I fought to have SB erased from my league years ago (with the help of Mark Donelson), and I'm happy to say they've never returned.

I wasn't really positive about my pick of Weaver.
Right now, I've got 9 picks before my next one and my plan A is to target McCann and Hosmer. The players remaining is here.
With both Zimmerman and Lawrie remaining, you might actually want to think about taking a 3B, and using Bautista in the OF. With five starting OF slots per the article's league description, it seems like a format that overvalues the position, even though in conventional roto 3B is obviously much shallower right now.
It's a thought, but I still have OFs projected ahead of Zimmerman (Lawrie just taken) if you ignore position. I'm also thinking about Cruz and Pence.
- At that point, I think you will have to play the draft and observe what your league mates are doing. If the elite get snatched up fast, you may have to adjust on the fly.
I try not to be a slave to rankings. I just simply draft the best player available that fills a need on my roster.
