Well I have a bunch of players that I can keep for my minor league system but really not sure on what I want to do yet.. These are all the players.. Some have been up this year others have not.
Luke Scott OF Astros
Shane Victorino OF Phillies
Erick Aybar SS Angels
Wilson Betemit 3B/SS Dodgers
Jeff Salazar OF Rockies
Ryan Shealy 1B Royals
Ian Stewart 3B Rockies
Nick Adenhart SP Angels
Ricky Nolasco SP Marlins
Jonathan Sanchez SP Giants
All these guys plus McCann and Saito can be kept as minor league players in my league. But in different sections AAA or AA.
Hitters - 500 MLB appearances or more than 1000 MLB at-bats anything less than 500 or 1000 can be AAA
Pitchers - 100 MLB appearances or more than 50 MLB starts so they get 50 starts before they can't be AAA Minors anymore
Then AA - less than 130 AB and less than 50 IP
The way I was thinking Adenhart is a must and slides into the AA keepers since he will not be called up this year. Then i'm not sure what to do. I got Stewart and Aybar who have been the main thoughts most of the year. Stewart really is nothing more than a trading chip because I already have Cabrera and Wright blocking his way. Aybar could really help me if he turns out but the Angels just have way way to many prospects.
I have claims on Gallardo and Inman who would be perfect for my AA if they drop to me but i'm in 1st place so that is a long shot.
So then looking at AAA I got McCann who slips in there to take one slot but who to take the other two. I thought about Saito but he's kinda old an not sure if he can keep it up next year.
So then who though Scott and Victorino look pretty good now how good can they really be and are they worth keeping over the younger guys?
I have Shealy but I don't really care for guys who K a lot and will be be able to put constant power numbers up to offset the K's. Or Nolasco who pitched well for awhile but ended up 11-10 not so great. Or Sanchez who kinda looked good but not sure now.
Then Betemit who I was really high on but seems lost now with the Dodgers. An when will Ian Stewart finally do something. Or will he never do anything?
I have given up a lot of young guys on the way to a possible title this year.. Verlander,Marte,Hamels,Josh Johnson.. Did I just give up way to much in some young guys or do I still have some good options do the guys I have, have enough upside?
