Need some help! (whir)

Postby CyboNinja » Wed Feb 13, 2013 3:57 pm

12 team 6x6 (ops, qs) H2H, 7 keepers no restrictions year to year. Heres my team so far...

C- Sal Perez
1B- Joey Votto**
2B- Dustin Pedroia**
3B- Mike Moustakas
SS- Hanley Ramirez**
LF- Josh Willingham**
CF- Yoenis Cespedes**
RF- Hunter Pence**
Uti- Wilin Rosario
Uti- Cory Hart
BN- Mike Napoli

I starred all the keepers I've decided on thus far. I was going to keep Cory Hart as well but now that hes not expected to play until May I'm not so sure. Odds are I can draft him with a 12th round pick or so I project. My problem is who do I keep? I'm leaning towards Rosario. Power like that is hard to come by. To make things even worse I've been offered Pablo Sandoval for my 9th round pick (we start in the 8th, would be my second pick). If I had the room It would be a no brainer. I think a hamate-less Panda could actually play the whole year and maybe finally hit 30 HRs while hitting ~.300. He has the ability but just hasn't put it together for a whole season yet.

Anyhow, who would you keep between Perez and Rosario? Or would you keep neither and make the deal? Or would you still make the deal and not keep Willingham or Pence and keep Perez or Rosario instead? I have a feeling if I stand pat he may toss Panda back and I can just draft him with my 8th round (1st) pick.

Thanks in advance for any help and be sure to leave your links, I'll be happy to chime in when I can.

Do you have to keep 7? Can you only keep 6 and get a pick in the 7th round?

If you do have to keep 7 I think I might gamble a little and go with Napoli. I have them ranked Perez>Napoli>Rosario, but I think Napoli has the most upside if he can manage to stay healthy (big if). Also my rankings don't include OPS, and I think that'd likely boost him over Perez anyways.

Sorry I didn't clarify. Yes we must keep 7.

Good options here.

I think I go with Rosario. I thought there would be a bigger disparity in OPS between the three but Perez is not so far behind the other two that I would rule him out (I can't count on Napoli to post his 2011 OPS). That being said I still go with Rosario over Napoli and Salvador Perez. He has a ton of power and hits in the perfect park. He will also be hitting in a terrific lineup if CarGo and Tulo stay healthy.

Yes there is a little bit of an issue about playing time, but I wouldn't worry too much about that.

I'd make the trade for Sandoval. If you said you'd draft him in the 8th anyway (assuming he's available), why not guarantee that you get him at the price of a 9 and you can draft the best available Catcher in the 8th if you're really hung up on that position. In this case, you'd be throwing 3 catchers back in the pool. Surely one of them would be available in the 8th...there might even be someone else better available in the 8th round and 1 of the catchers makes it to you in the 10th round. Disclosure: I do tend do draft my catchers on the very late side and play the wire if needed.

Keep Rosario and definitely do the deal for Panda and keep him as well if you have room?

I think you should jump on that Panda deal. I'm not as high on Rosario as some of the other posters here, but I have to think you might be able to trade one of those guys for a decent (not great) draft pick. Besides. I have to think you can get Perez or Rosario back in the draft.

Worse comes to worse, I'd try to trade Pence/Napoli or Pence/Perez for a better OF and pull the trade on Sandoval.

Good luck!

I'd personally just make the Sandoval deal and then keep him along with the other 6 you've selected. ;-D
