Long time NL only 8 team keeper traditional roto 23/260 4x4 (k's, no whip). I can keep 11
Hitters : Martin 11, Doumit 7, Kemp 19, Werth 1, F. Lewis 5, Cameron 3 (6 guys for $45)
Pitchers: Santana 20 (for this year plus next 2), RJ 1, Lohse 1, Wilson 5, Wolf 2 (5 guys $29 for 11 total @$74)
I would need 12 guys for $186, or $15+ per guy, which should allow me to rule the draft.
I also have Mike Gonzalez 10, Ian Stewart 5, Kel Johnson 12, Tejada 4, Pedro 4, Lowry 1
I was offered Ryan Braun 20 (this year and next) for Werth, Stewart, Lohse and Wilson. Except for Wilson (in his last year), all have this year and next at current salary, or I can long term them next year for $5 more per year. Werth would be $6 NEXT year and the year after if I signed him for 2 years before next season. I countered with Gonzo for Wilson and Lewis or Cameron for Werth but he didn't bite.
Free Agent hitters are Utley, Rollins, Wright, A Gonz, Fielder, Beltran, McCann, E Byrnes, C Young, Atkins, Weeks, Hawpe, Francouer. Soriano and the Lee Brothers (Carlos and Derek, of course) also likely.
Who do I keep if I don't make the deal? Who do I keep if I do? Should I make the trade? I love Braun but that seems like alot of value to give up. Thank you!
