I am in a league at work that I won last year. It is a keeper league, however we only get to keep 5 players. I need some suggestions on who to keep. I have set up 5 currently, but that may change.

I have the following players set up as my keepers at this time.

Pitchers - Jake Peavy(SP), Bobby Jenks(RP), Jose Valverde(RP)
I kept both Jenks and Valverde because you have two starting RP spots in our league and it isn't easy to find one 40 Save relief pitcher, let alone two.

Batters - Jose Reyes(SS), Ryan Braun(3B)

chose Braun because he was money at the end of last season and Reyes because of the steals, etc.

The way I figure it when we get down to the draft it will be easier to get more batters then it is to get the type of pitchers that I have in Peavy, Jenks, and Valverde. Below is my entire roster.


Batters

Russell Martin - C
Todd Helton - 1B
Rickie Weeks - 2B
Chipper Jones - 3B
Jose Reyes - SS
Grady Sizemore - OF
Carlos Lee - OF
Alex Rios - OF
David Ortiz - DH
Carlos Guillen - 1B, SS
Chone Figgins - 3B
Ryan Braun 3B

Pitchers
Jeremy Accardo - RP
Manny Corpas - RP
Jake Peavy - SP
Brett Myers - SP
Bobby Jenks - RP
Jose Valverde - RP
Pedro Martinez - SP
Kelvim Escobar - SP

I heard Valverde want be the closer in Arizona this year, that or he is being up for trade offers..... However, I did hear this like 2-3 weeks ago on Fantasy Baseball Insider on ESPN News.... Eric was the one too mention this I believe....

I would keep Russel Martin, Ryan Braun, Rickie Weeks, Grady Seizmore, Jose Reyes

That would all but cover you except for 1st Base and 2 OF spots.... You have the HRs, SBs, hits, and runs..... only category's I see being a disadvantage is strikeouts and walks with that group....

With that Lineup you can all but draft Pitching with your first 5 picks unless you snag a top 4 pick then you would have too get one of these guys (Santana-Arod-Howard-Pujols) with your first pick.

Valverde was traded a to Houston in December. No way do you keep Weeks over Peavy. You don't do that if you are Rickie Weeks' parents.
