Weaver/Sabathia for keepers?? WHIR

Postby KSChris » Thu Oct 11, 2012 6:15 pm

Weaver is $47
Sabathia is $34

Definitely not keeping Weaver.. I might be keeping Sabathia, but I'm unsure.

Someone offered me Ian Kennedy $13, Starling Marte $3, and Casey Kelly $3 for the two of them. I like Marte, but don't know about the other two even if I'm not keeping Weaver/Sabathia and the unlikelyhood of getting many better offers given how expensive they are. I was just going to let them go back into the draft pool in February, and target them again.

However, he then said he'd be willing to move Will Middlebrooks $3, or Brett Lawrie $3 as well.


So.. thoughts? A Kennedy/Marte/Middlebrooks or Lawrie group for $19 total a good enough haul for two guys I'm not keeping??

My current keepers are expensive as hell, so I would welcome the cheaper salaries.. but I don't know.

Yep, i would do that deal. I would take Lawrie over Middlebrooks.

I don't like either of those pitchers for those prices. Really of that group Lawrie is probably the only one I would really keep. Kennedy is boderline at $13 and Marte is ok at $3 but I don't believe in him all that much for next year.

Could you get BOTH Lawrie and Middlebrooks?

Spot on. Make sure you at least get Lawrie in there somehow.

Thanks guys.

Went with Lawrie/Marte/Kennedy.

Also traded a $37 Curtis Granderson for $3 Wil Myers and $3 Manny Machado.

Looking at a keeper lineup of:

30 Prince Fielder
37 Ian Kinsler
3 Brett Lawrie
3 Manny Machado
10 Hunter Pence
3 Wil Myers
3 Starling Marte
24 Felix Hernandez
7 Shaun Marcum

And I have $31 Adam Jones, $5 Nick Castellanos, and $13 Ian Kennedy fighting for the last slot. I'm thinking it's a bit TOO reliant on unproven prospects, so I'll see if I can flip a Marte, Castellanos or Machado for something at some point between now and February.. but I'm hoping the Lawrie/Myers pair pays dividends next year.

I'd be holding Machado at $3. The kid looks pretty legit so far.
