I am in a Keeper 5X5 league. We keep 7 and redraft the rest. Please help!!
Here is my roster:
C Mike Napoli, LAA C, DH 1B Justin Morneau, Min 1B, DH 2B Brandon Phillips, Cin 2B 3B Alex Rodriguez, NYY 3B SS Stephen Drew, Ari SS S 2B/SS J.J. Hardy, Mil SS 1B/3B Mark Reynolds, Ari 1B, 3B OF Carl Crawford, TB OF OF Jermaine Dye, CWS OF OF Adam Jones, Bal OF OF Matt Holliday, StL OF OF Josh Willingham, Was OF UTIL Nick Swisher, NYY 1B, OF Bench Torii Hunter*, LAA OF DL15 DL Ian Kinsler*, Tex 2B DL15 PITCHERS - P John Lackey, LAA SP TB SP Rick Porcello, Det SP PP SP Jeremy Guthrie, Bal SP SP Scott Feldman, Tex SP, RP SP Aaron Cook, Col SP DTD SP Andy Pettitte, NYY SP RP Andrew Bailey, Oak SP, RP RP Leo Nunez, Fla RP Hou 2-1 RP C.J. Wilson, Tex RP @Cle Bench Ubaldo Jimenez, Col SP Bench Ryan Dempster, ChC SP Bench Scott Baker, Min SP DL Tim Wakefield*, Bos SP
I give up SB, but upgrade my pitching. I am concerned about giving up the power of Reynolds (possible Career Year) and the 5 tools of Holliday.
I am currently in 1st in my division, but I do not think my pitching is good enough to take the title.
im guessing this is both Reynolds AND Holliday for Becket, Abreu, Ibanez... in which case i say hell no.. sell Reynolds at what everyone else is selling him at IMO it looks like this...
right now value: Reynolds>Abreu and Ibanez Holliday=Beckett
get better, or better yet younger OFers or a bigger value player to go with Beckett and Abreu then Ibanez (not saying hes bad, but you are giving up a TON of keeper youth to add one arm and 2 guys that you won't even keep in my eyes anyways) so you need a better keeper OF option to do it...
I was leaning towards declining it, but was intrigued by the upgrade. I drafted Reynolds only because he was great value, but never been a big fan. He is a drain on AVG and will not repeat his SB from this year. Thus, I was going to keep Beckett and another plaer on my roster, but I thought I may be giving up more then I was getting.
