Choose 10 Keepers, WHIR!!

Postby TheIllest43 » Sat Oct 30, 2010 12:00 pm

I am in a 12-team, mixed, H2H, 5x5 keeper league where you can keep up to 10 players, no other keeper restrictions (essentially top 120 are kept). Positions are c,1b,2b,ss,3b,of,of,of,util. Here are the potential keepers from my squad:

1B - A.Gonzalez ;-D
2B - G.Beckham ;-D , B.Roberts
SS - H.Ramirez ;-D
3B - Ar.Ramirez
OF - I.Suzuki ;-D , C.B.Young ;-D , M.Kemp ;-D , C.Rasmus ;-D , A.Lind (1b)

SP - C.Kershaw ;-D , D.Price ;-D , U.Jimenez ;-D , Z.Greinke

I've put ;-D to the right of whoever I am currently planning on keeping. I used to have such a man crush on Aramis and given how shallow 3b is, I am tempted to keep him. Thoughts? Also, what do you think of drafting Mike Moustakas this year as my future everyday 3b?

2nd base is very deep this coming season, I'm not sure you really need to keep Beckham as your 10th player. The same can probably be said for my choice of Greinke; as SP is also overflowing with choices but to me he's a better keeper than Beck. Mike Moustakas will be a popular later round pick next spring, however he's probably looking at the 1st 2 months in the minors at least. I was hoping for a healthy season from A Ram in 2010 & kept him in several leagues where we keep less than you do; I won't be going there again & you shouldn't either. Beckham isn't a bad pick, but with your league only starting 12 & there being 15 or 16 decent choices I'd wait a few rounds and hold last years Cy Young winner (who has a real good chance at being traded)instead

Greinke over Ichiro easy. No way keep a aging Ichiro.

Disagree, you gotta keep Ichiro. He's just too steady and reliable for avg and SB.

I'd keep Aramis over Beckham but otherwise agree with you.

He's 36 though. How much longer?
He had 116 combined runs/rbis, yuck.
Greinke is a young ace.

No doubt about it, keep Greinke. He might be dealt to a better team this off season.

HELP!
