Postby speedy27 » Mon Feb 02, 2009 10:42 am

All of the following players still have eligibility remaining in our minor league system. Which of the players listed would be the best long term keepers? I've got to let 6 go back into the draft at the end of the week. thanks for any and all help!

JR Towles C Hou
Max Ramirez C Tex
Beau Mills 1B Cle
Kendry Morales 1B/OF LAA
Adrian Cardenas 2B Oak
Jemile Weeks 2B Oak
Michael Moustakas 3B KC
Tim Beckham SS TB
Reid Brignac SS TB
Jason Donald SS Phi
Carlos Trunifel SS Sea
Chris Valaika SS Cin
Julio Borbon OF Tex

Clayton Richard SP CWS
Jonathon Niese SP NYM
Madison Bumgarner SP SF
Ross Detwiler SP Wash
Christian Friedrich SP Col
Michael Main SP Tex
Jacob Odorizzi SP Mil
Joey Devine RP Oak

I was thinking of letting Towles, Borbon, Donald, Friedrich, Odorizzi and Niese all go back. thoughts

I'd consider keeping Towles and see what he does this season before dumping him. !+)

Personally I like Donald more than Brignac and Valaika. But they probably have similar value at this point. How many teams in your league? Because I don't see any of them being legitimate starters in a 12 team league at their peak.

Clayton Richard doesn't do alot for me either.

And Borbon's 53 SB's should make that list. I really don't see why he isn't on the list. He's got a low K rate so he should be able to hit .290+ and he's steals alot of bases.

I'd drop Ramirez (won't stay at C), Valaika (not a MLB SS), Odorizzi, Richard, Donald, & Friedrich
