    Best keeper options?

    This is an odd league in which there are 10 owners drafting from 16 MLB teams plus certain players not on those teams. It's basically the equivalent of a 17-team mixed league. We do not have contracts; to keep someone, you pay them 150% of the previous year's salary or $4, whichever is more expensive. We are 5x5 with OBP instead of AVG and SB minus CS instead of SB. We have a 21-man active roster and a 9-man bench; on the bench, there is no distinction between major and minor leaguers.

    We keep 7. I am definitely keeping Bellinger $8 and Rendon $24. Below are the possibilities for the other 5. Who from this list do you like?

    C Garver $4
    1B/3B Y. Gurriel $4
    2B/SS L. Urias $4
    SS C. Seager $18
    OF Aquino $4
    OF K. Calhoun $4
    OF Haniger $11
    OF Pham $8
    OF Robles $8
    OF Te. Hernandez $4
    P Desclafani $4
    P T. Rogers $4
    P Stripling $5
    P J. Urias $4

    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    Which teams are eliminated? That might change my vote on Garver.

    It changes from year to year. Voting on that ends this weekend.

    I don't trust Aquino. Definitely keeping Yuli, Pham, Rogers, Garver. I'd add Robles as my 5, even though the net steals thing might not help him. I don't like anyone else enough that it really matters what 1B/C are available to compete with Yuli and Garver.

    Gives you a nice balance of power, speed, and pitching. I think Urias gets 150 innings this year, and they'll be pretty good innings.

    I see Haniger on the list. Is the consensus that he is broken at this point? How far has he fallen in value?
