Just Won My 5th Consecutive Title! Keepers? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Fri Oct 08, 2010 2:21 pm

Thank you to all for your advice this past season. Just won my 5th consecutive title last week. Now I turn to you for your keeper suggestions. A lot of great players coming off the books for all teams (their 3 year contracts are up). I will have 12 pick out of 12 in the draft next year, as the draft goes in reverse order of previous year's standings. So figure a lot of the usual studs will be there in the draft, so whoever would be around for 12th and 13th picks...

Which 6 of the following should I keep?

Jeter
Crawford
McCutchen
Ellsbury
Roberts
Longoria
Granderson
Stanton
Ubaldo
Buchholz
Bumgarner
Soria
Scherzer


12 Team H2H League with 6 keepers (a * means the 3-year keeper contract expires after this year)

9 x 9 categories (R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP

My 2010 Championship Team (AN * means they are going back in the draft):

C Brian McCann*
1B Adam Dunn*
2B Chase Utley*
3B Alex Rodriguez*
SS Derek Jeter
OF Carl Crawford
OF Matt Holliday*
OF Andrew McCutchen
UT Evan Longoria
UT Curtis Granderson
UT Ian Kinsler*
BN Mike Stanton
BN Brian Roberts
BN Edwin Encarnacion
DL Jacoby Ellsbury


SP Roy Halladay*
SP CC Sabathia*
SP Felix Herndez*
SP Ubaldo Jimenez
SP Clay Buchholz
SP Madison Bumgarner
SP Max Scherzer
SP Edinson Volquez
SP Derek Lowe

I don't know about your 5th keeper. You could hope that Jeter bounces back or go with Ubaldo or Bumgarner. It will be interesting to see Bumgarner next year.

Evan Longoria 3b
Carl Crawford OF
Mike Stanton OF
Andrew McCutchen OF
Ubaldo Jimenez SP
Joakim Soria RP

Your choices are tough. Mad Bum - I liked him and saw him pitch in HS, but the problem is you also have Buccholz who is on the same tier and then you have Jimenez who is a must-keep.

5 Consecutive titles?

No offense but thats impossible in a COMPETITIVE LEAGUE.

I'm a very crafty, well versed, draft master, and I've won my COMPETITIVE league 1 time in 9 years. I'd say the first 4-5 I was learning the ropes, but after that I lost because it was hard as hell to win.

You really need to step back and take a look at your league. Is it competitive? Are you the only one that pays attention? Are there 8 teams on auto draft when you draft? You have like 8 first rounders on your team, and i understand its a keeper league with contracts, but in a 12 man league how does that happen?

Hey congrats and good luck, but something is fishy....

and my screenname says i'm new but i've been at the cafe for a LONG TIME, just can't get logged in so i put in a new name....

good luck
