I'm in a 12 team 5X5, roto keeper. We keep 8, My keepers are Hilighted, but I've been having thoughts about making a change. My options are listed below the roster. Any suggestions will be appreciated. If you have an alternate option please share it with me.
C Brian McCann (Atl - C) 1B Carlos Peña (TB - 1B) 2B B.J. Upton (TB - 2B,OF) 3B Jorge Cantú (Fla - 1B,3B) SS Aaron Miles (StL - 2B,3B,SS) CI David Ortiz (Bos - 1B) MI Marco Scutaro (Tor - 2B,3B,SS,OF) OF Jermaine Dye (CWS - OF) OF Randy Winn (SF - OF) OF Hunter Pence (Hou - OF) OF J.D. Drew (Bos - OF) Util Skip Schumaker (StL - OF) BN Jayson Werth (Phi - OF) BN Casey Blake (LAD - 1B,3B,OF) DL Carlos Lee (Hou - OF) DL
Pitching SP Justin Verlander (Det - SP) SP Mike Pelfrey (NYM - SP) RP Brian Fuentes (Col - RP) RP Salomón Torres (Mil - RP) P Randy Wolf (Hou - SP) P Gavin Floyd (CWS - SP,RP) P Adam Wainwright (StL - SP) BN Johnny Cueto (Cin - SP) BN Jeremy Sowers (Cle - SP) BN Paul Maholm (Pit - SP) BN Jesse Litsch (Tor - SP)
Option 1 - Instead of Verlander keep Cueto
Option 2 - instead of Verlander or Cueto, only keep 1 arm(Wainwright) and add a bat(Pena) as a keeper and target Pitching with my 1st couple of draft picks
I'm a Carlos Pena fan, I know some people aren't very high on him, but even those guys would probably tell you to keep Pena here.
McCann Pena Upton Ortiz Dye Pence Lee
These were easy decisions IMO. I'm not sure who would be the 8th keeper. I'd like to say Verlander, but after last year, I just don't know. Cueto has the highest upside, but he's also the most dangerous one. Wainwright doesn't have the upside Cueto has, but he's the safest bet of the three. I'd probably keep Verlander and hope he bounces back. If he's back to 2007 form, he'll be very good.
