Entering the 6th year of my 10 team 3 keeper H2H league and I need to decide who to keep. These are the top guys from my title winning team last year. Time to be the first team in league to repeat. I know who 2 of my keepers are, it's just the third one I'm wondering about. Actually I'm pretty sure the final keeper is between two guys. I would just like some others' opinions.
David Wright, Miguel Cabrera, Nick Markakis, Carlos Beltran, Adrian Gonzalez, Dan Uggla, Vernon Wells, Jacoby Ellsbury, Roy Halladay
DWright and MCab are sure-fire keepers - to them, I think I would add Adrian Gonzalez, and it's not even that close. I don't see Beltran putting together 40 HR ever again and I don't think Markakis is worth as much as Gonzo. This is all IMO, of course, but I just like the power at the corner spots and Util right off the bat
Assuming there is no cap on how long you can keep these guys, I'd go Wright, M-Cab and Markakis. I think Beltran will be mildly better this year then Markakis, but I think it's a real toss up. Considering how close it is for this year, I think I'd go with the younger option who could actually exceed what he's done to date. I also think eventually the running will stop for Beltran, and he will lose a decent chunk of value at that point.
Wright, Cabrera, Halladay for me. If you don't want to keep a pitcher, I would rank the other options Beltran, Markakis, Gonzalez, although I agree that if there is no limit on how long you can keep players I would probably give Markakis the edge.
