2013 Keepers

Postby Element » Wed Sep 19, 2012 12:22 am

Trying to get an early pulse in my cash league. It is an auction keeper. $260 draft cap. 5x5. OBP instead of runs scored. 12 teams. We can keep between 0-7 players. There is NOT a bench and we only get 10 add/drops all season (DL and ML moves do not count).

C - Mike Napoli $18
C - Salvador Perez $20
1B - Anthony Rizzo $20
2B - Jason Kipnis $12
3B - Pablo Sandoval $21
SS - Danny Espinosa $7
UI - Will MIddlebrooks $20
UI - Dee Gordon $11
OF - Matt Kemp $34
OF - Bryce Harper $11
OF - Yoenis Cespedes $15
OF - Lorenzo Cain $7
OF - Matt Holliday $31
OF - Justin Upton $27

P - Clayton Kershaw $21
P - Stephen Strasburg $17
P - Shelby Miller $6
P - Dan Straily $20
P - Chris Carpenter $14
P - Sergio Santos $15
P - Colby Lewis $13
P - Daniel Hudson $21
P - Craig Kimbrel $11

Here is where I am right now.

2B - Jason Kipnis $12
OF - Matt Kemp $34
OF - Bryce Harper $11
OF - Yoenis Cespedes $15
P - Clayton Kershaw $21
P - Stephen Strasburg $17
P - Craig Kimbrel $11

Total = $121

Thoughts?

I could see going Holliday or Kipnis with the last spot. I don't think Kipnis is really a 25-30 SB guy and Holliday is still pretty reasonably priced, especially with the inflation of a keeper league.

3B - Pablo Sandoval $21
OF - Matt Kemp $34
OF - Bryce Harper $11
OF - Yoenis Cespedes $15
P - Clayton Kershaw $21
P - Stephen Strasburg $17
P - Craig Kimbrel $11
=$130

-Kemp, Harper, Kershaw and Strasburg are no-doubters.
-I chose Panda over Rizzo because there are more quality 1B than 3B. I presume the top 3B will be kept. Rizzo looks promising, but could also have a Eric Hosmer-type year. This spot could be any of Panda, Rizzo or Kipnis.
-Cespedes at $15 is solid. He's not as good as Holliday, but Cespedes at less than half the price could be better value.
-I don't like to keep closers, but Kimbrel is the best there is. $11 is generous for what he'll go for in 2013.

No on Kipnis, especially with a career .326 oba.

I would keep Upton, but i know there are Upton haters.
He has the talent to do what Kemp did last year.
If not Upton, Holliday, who has a great oba.

These guys for sure. Holliday is at the max I would go but could see keeping him. Not a fan of Kipnis with your settings. If you want a 7th I would go with Sandoval. Justin Upton could end up being a huge steal at that price. Or a complete bust.

Essentially this, and I would lean Sandoval for the last spot.
