Keeper League Help Please

Postby RyeWhiskey » Wed Apr 11, 2007 10:05 pm

12 team, H2H, standard stats, keeper league (9 keepers each year, this is the 3rd year) - keepers are identified with **, possibles identified with *.

C - Piazza
1B - Teixeira**
2B - Barfield
3B - Cabrera**
SS - Jeter**
OF - Bay**
OF - Sizemore**
OF - Rios
Util - Teahen
B - Gordon*
DL - Figgins*

SP - Santana**
SP - Peavy**
SP - Kazmir*
SP - Haren*
SP - Hill*
SP - Maine
SP - Gorzelanny
SP - Greinke
RP - Valverde
RP - Torres
P - Otsuka
DL - Liriano**

This is a tough league with talented, smart managers. What are your thoughts? Any gaping holes (other than Barfield at the moment)? Trade ideas? Keepers?
All comments appreciated.

Thanks,
Monkey

You could look to improve ur RPs as well. I would also bench Jacobs for Teahen and Util seems to be a weakness now, but that should become a strenght soon with Gordon.

I'm comfortable with my RPs at the moment. But Mastui (2B-Col) and Giles (2B-SD) are available on the FA at the moment. Do I drop Barfield for one?

thanks for the help on mine i agree about helping others and them not helping you back! cheapskates loL!!!! anyways on to fbb

If you drop barfield someone will surely pick him up.

Clevelands offense is potent he will get you alot of runs scored. He has only had 21 AB this year so far once he gets more AB I believe he will be moved up in the lineup. Be patient he will come around IMO.

I would definitely hold onto Barfield. He has the potential to be an immediate 20/20 player in that offense and should be moved up in the order soon enough.

Other than that I like your team. Good mix of speed, power and youth throughout. I'd also start Teahen at UT over Jacobs.

Thanks for your input.

If this is a keeper league, I like all the young talent that you have. I think Barfield might be able to get 20/20 in hitter friendly Jacobs Field.

Thanks for the help. I tend to agree with the others here. Bench Jacobs for Teahen and keep Barfield.

If figgins has 2B eligibility in your league your set their. I think Barfield is ok too. He is in a great lineup and has Sizemore batting behind him (so to speak). Only weakness is RP. I'd try to sell high on Torres and try to get someone like Jenks, Wickman, or Gordon before Torres returns back to his normal self.

You have a great team though!

All around solid team. You have great SP, though your RP is not great, but decent and should hold throughout the season.

You have a balanced offense, and like you said Barfield might be your only question mark, but in a keeper league i would hold onto him as he does (as said above) have 20/20 potential. If Figgins is 2b eligible, then you're set ;-D

Thanks for your help with mine.
