I play in a CBS H2H league, and we get to keep 5 players (no draft position replacement, you just keep 5 players from year to year). It’s a 10-team league, and I’m the league champion. My projected 5 keepers right now:
1B - Miguel Cabrera (lock)
1B - Ryan Howard (lock)
OF - Ryan Braun (lock)
SS - Troy Tulowitzski (lock)
As you can see, I have two 1B, and we only play one and one DH. So my DH spot and 1B are set each week.
I like VMart as a keeper because of position scarcity of C.
However, I’ve been looking at the 3B in my league (a weak position this year), and I think I’ve figured out that all of the 3B studs but Pablo Sandoval will be kept as “keepers”, leaving only Kung Fu Panda as a top tier 3B (Zimmerman, Wright, ARod, Youk, Longoria, Reynolds will all be gone).
An owner in my league has offered me A-Rod for VMart plus my first (I’ll be picking last as league champ) and fourth round draft picks.
Is locking up A-Rod worth giving up VMart plus whatever mid-tier dude I pick up in RD 4 plus someone a first rounder (after the 50 keepers are gone) like Ellsbury, Granderson, Peavy, or Cliff Lee.
What do you think?
