2 - 2year contracts
2 - 3year contracts
1 - 5year contract
Also, we started the league this year, so the players drafted keep their rd value for the length of the contract as well as their $$ value. With that in mind I submit to you a list of what can potentially be the greatest keepers ever:
Ian Kinsler - $27 and a 2nd rd pick - 2yr
Matt Kemp - $19 and a 6th rd pick - 3yr
Joey Votto - $10 and a 10th rd pick - 3yr
Josh Johnson - $9 and a 17th rd pick - 2yr
Justin Upton - $5 and a 20th rd pick - 5yr
Is this not the greatest keeper group ever?
so what exactly are you needing? a pat on the back?
Kinsler is now showing to be somewhat injury prone, will give you a great 1st half but you know the injury bug will bite him at some point in the 2nd half I.E. career ABs: 1st half 1157, 2nd half 663... Ave 1st half .287, 2nd half .267...Ks 1st half 172, 2nd half 103 (and again damn near only half the ABs as the 1st half)... notice a trend starting?
Kemp IMO is WAY overrated by most i mean at this point and time Werth, Holliday, Nelson Cruz, Torii Hunter before DL and Curtis Granderson are all doing what Kemps doing with the Power/Speed combo for a lot less cost (i can make up the 10-20 point difference in average up with a later round bat)... now not saying Kemp isn't a great player and even better keeper, but just acknowledging other players are doing it too...
Votto i have mixed emotions, point blank plays in a sh!tty lineup that doesn't give much back to him in terms of production
Johnson and Johnson again great player, but injury prone, has never made it through a full season yet and is basically has a bionic arm for crist sake...
Upton i think is the best keeper of them all simply because of the value upgrade with the draft position...
good keeper set, could potentially be great, but not the best ever by any means...
