I am torn who to keep for the upcoming season. We have standard 25-man rosters and 5x5 head-to-head scoring and a $300 salary cap. I want to keep guys with the best VALUE, not necessarily the best players. That way I will have a great-sized budget going into the free agency draft come March.
The names have been removed to decrease player bias, and I thought it would be fun to see the responses. We keep five, and so far I have decided to keep these three:
1) A productive 26-year-old 1B for $1
2) A breakout 31-year-old SP from '08 for $1
3) A struggling franchise's 24-year-old young arm whose role is still uncertain for $1
... and have to choose two of these four...
A) A 26-year-old top-3 2B for $21
B) A 29-year-old top-5 SP in a weak division for $21
C) A 29-year-old potential closer who showed signs of greatness in '08 for $1.
D) A 27-year-old, likely Opening Day starter, who is on a very young team with great talent behind him for $11.
Which two would be the best value from A, B, C and D?
