10 team keeper league, custom categories (standard 5x5 plus H, TB, OBP, SLG, H, TB, ER, QS). You must keep 5 players from your roster, although you can trade any player on your roster for any other player on another manager's roster up until the keeper due date. You can also trade post-keeper draft picks for players, as long as the managers each get a draft pick.
4 of my 5 keepers are Howard, Teixeira, Lincecum, and Kinsler. My 5th keeper was supposed to be ARod, but with the injury, I'm not certain what to do. I think I have three options:
1. Keep him and hope for the best.
2. Try to trade him. I've already started asking to see what people would be willing to do for him. The most interesting ideas so far are
--ARod, my 7th and 8th pick (keepers are picks 1-5, so it would be my 2nd and 3rd live pick) for Jose Reyes, his 10th and his 18th pick
--Holliday and Liriano (or Price) for ARod and Lincecum
3. NOT keep him, and hope that I can pick him up with a post keeper pick. If I did that, I would have McCann, Bay, Joey Votto, or Jay Bruce as the most keeper-worthy.
Any thoughts? Help? Advice? Keepers are due on Thursday. THANKS!!!
