I was suckered into a keeper league by my buddy and I took over a team that finished in 7th place out of 10 teams. I dropped all the garbage players and from the following list, I need to keep 10 players. I have an idea on some players that I will be keeping, but need help on a few. I believe I am in position to win now and my future is bright. We can keep 10 players every year.
The scoring is as follows, ESPN H2H Pts weekly. HITTING- Total Bases (TB) 1 Walks (BB) 1 Intentional Walks (IBB) 1 Hit by Pitch (HBP) 1 Sacrifices (SAC) 1 Runs Scored (R) 1 Runs Batted In (RBI) 1 Stolen Bases (SB) 1 Caught Stealing (CS) -1 Strikeouts (K) -1
Here is what I have left after making some minor moves:
Miguel Cabrera-1B-DET^ Chipper Jones-3B-ATL Rafael Furcal-SS-LA (picked up off waivers) Matt Holliday-LF-OAK ^(traded 1st round pick for this, OF was horrendous) Grady Sizemore-CF-CLE^ Matt Kemp-RF-LA^ (picked up off waivers) Chris Davis-1B, 3B-TEX^ (picked up off waivers, will play in UTIL spot or at 3B if I drop Chipper) David Ortiz-UTIL-BOS Placido Polanco-2B-DET
Jake Peavy-SP-SD^ (traded Justin Morneau for him, pitching was terrible) Francisco Liriano-SP-MIN^ Yovani Gallardo-SP-MIL^ (picked up off waivers) Matt Cain-SP-SF Justin Verlander-SP-DET
This is what is left after dropping all the other garbage. ^ denotes a keeper. I have 8, and I need 2 more. Am I keeping the right people? Who should I tab as my final 2 keepers? Any help would be appreciated. WHIR and give my opinion to your link if you leave one. Thanks everyone.
Definitely Chipper, but since you're keeping Davis, that'll fill your Util.
Given that you stat cats don't emphasize power hitters, I might consider keeping Polanco as your 10th keeper. You should definitely review the benefits of this deal (as opposed to keeping Papi) given the categories you'll be working within.
That is a great bunch...Not sure if you can trade prior to the draft, but you may be able to get a second baseman in a deal. You could trade Davis or Chipper for a stud 2B man....if you can find someone in need of a 3 bagger i would do it up!!!
