I am in a league that has a $260 draft limit. I have 3 pitchers on my roster which I can keep only 2 for the 2003 season. Which 2 pitchers would you kep and why? Here are the pitchers and their values.

Josh Beckett $10
Woody Williams $11
Russ Ortiz $14

I'd keep Ortiz and Beckett. Ortiz has nasty stuff, and going to the Braves won't hurt. If anything, working with a new coaching staff might bring him closer to his full potential.

Beckett is a risk - a very large risk, in fact - but his ceiling is as high as any pitcher not named Randy currently playing in the majors. If you don't like taking risks with your keepers, drop him, but I think the possible reward justifies taking a chance.

how long can you keep these guys? The longer the better (and I mean much better) for burkett. He's the former best prospect in baseball and hasn't shown anything to say he's unworthy. as for teh 2003 season, here's my list:
1. Russ Ortiz
2. Josh Beckett
3. Woody Williams
So, I agree. Beckett is a no brainer if you can keep him for a ong period of time.

I would keep Beckett and Ortiz. But i must say, going to Braves imo, will hurt Ortiz. Hes leaving the best pitchers park in bb, where he posted a 3/12 home/road hr split. Plus his so rate is decreasing. Shandler thinks a 4 era is in order.
