Strasberg is an interesting player in our format. He has already been part of your team for a year. He will miss 2011. He will probably have limited innings in 2012, and might be used out of the pen his first season back.

You have to invest three seasons of saving him to see any return, possibly in 2013. That is dedication, Hugo.

He would be picked up, but I am not sure when. Specifically, would he be selected before the 5th (15th) round? I don't know.

Put it this way - Strasburg's potential is enticing, but he is out for 2011 and will be limited in 2012 because of the surgery.

Adam Wainwright has a much better track record of performance in the major leagues. He will be gone for 2011 and limited in 2012 because of surgery.

Do we expect Wainwright to be a top-5 round pick?

This was tough, at least the last 2 keepers (choices, choices), but...

C Matt Wieters (He has to come around and even if he doesn't, he's still a top-12 C)
1B Justin Morneau (He screwed me, but that can't happen again, right?)
SS Elvis Andrus
SS Ian Desmond (I hope he's still 2B eligible...)
3B Evan Longoria
OF Drew Stubbs

SP Cliff Lee
SP Clayton Richard
RP Neftali Feliz
RP Brian Wilson

*whew*

Now, just as importantly: I pick second, right?

You guys are pretty attentive to this issue. I was going to wait until the 14th, to see who was hurt, who was playing, etc.

I thought they could be changed until the 14th, so they might change, but it gives a guy who is near the top of the draft order, like me, to scour what goodies they left off their list to draft with my 1st pick...

I am debating not protecting Abraham Nunez and Will Pennyfeather.

Word on the street is that Nunez signed with Toronto and has been working out with Jose Bautista. You better hang on to him. ;)

Two weeks until we identify our keepers.

I'm still waiting on the injury report for Bobby Bradley.

Yeah, we have until March 15 to finalize the keepers. That is my understanding.
