Alright so my team is out of the playoff picture this season, so im trying to align myself with the best possible keepers and minor league players. We play in a 12 team H2H where we get to keep 6 major league players and 12 minor league players. Our mlb guys have to be under a salary cap. My current projected keepers are Hafner, Soriano, Ichiro, Dunn, Adrian Gonzalez and Felix Hernandez. Most likely these guys will put me over our cap but i would be able to aquire more salary through trades. Also pitching is important to our league so im worried about only have one stud pitcher. So ive been trying to move some guys for another stud. A trade has been offered where i give up Dunn and Ichiro for Josh Beckett, B.J Upton, Joey Votto, and Luke Hochevar (sp?).
The reason i like this deal is because it will allow me to be under the cap because the combo of Beckett and Upton wont be as much as Dunn/Ichiro. But my question is do you think B.J Upton is a keeper type player and do you think Joey Votto or Luke Hochevar have any chance at starting next season??? These are the 2 highest rated minor leaguers on his team. Please help.
