Keeper league with OBP. How'd I do?

Postby Chip1010 » Sat Mar 22, 2008 3:54 pm

We're in the second year of our keeper league, and we keep six players a year (no rules on who you can keep). It's a 12-team 5x5 head-to-head league, but with OBP instead of BA.

Here's my roster. Any thoughts are appreciated.

C: J. Posada
1B: L. Berkman
2B: B. Roberts (keeper)
SS: T. Tulowitzky (keeper)
3B: A. Beltre
MI: J. Peralta
CI: T. Helton
OF: C. Crawford (keeper)
OF: A. Dunn (keeper)
OF: J. Cust
DH: D. Ortiz (keeper)

P: S. Kazmir (keeper)
P: J. Smoltz
P: T. Lincecum
P: J. Bonderman
P: A. Burnett
P: M. Garza
RP: H. Street
RP: E. Gagne

BENCH: B. Ryan
BENCH: Adam Jones

I like my offense. The health of my pitchers scares me, but I got a ton of high-K guys, so that makes me at least a bit more confident.

Thanks. Leave a link and I'll help you out as much as I can.

Huh? The guy I have at CI led the NL in OBP last year, and my 1B and DH are both better than Jackson. I would have nowhere to play him.

And winning a championship isn't really my goal here. It's head-to-head league with a six-team playoff, so I really just need to finish in the playoffs and cross my fingers.

I like having someone like J. Upton sitting on my bench to start the season, but I do like your team. Bonderman? He KILLED me last year, I avoid him like an STD.

I do like the team overall though. Good Luck!

I got Bonderman in the 14th round of a keeper draft in which all the top-notch players weren't in the pool, and the guy still has insane talent. He's also only 25. I still believe in him, so I took a flier on him. And I guess my "J. Upton sitting on the bench" is Adam Jones. Maybe I'm a homer, but I'm a big Jones fan. I've got him down for 20 homers this year, if not a ton of RBIs and runs because of that awful lineup in Baltimore. Upton went a few picks later in the final round, and I might regret that later.

Thanks for the thoughts.

You're right Jones is just like him as far as a possible what if to really make your team a winner. Last year it was HanRam I drafted early and the results were wicked..

I hope you regret drafting Jones instead of Upton!

Good luck man
