Help me make a decision on my last keeper Plz.

Postby BigW27 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 11:42 pm

I'm in a Roto League with 13 teams we get to keep Five Keepers. I already selected Four (Greinke, Utley, Bautista, Posey) need to decide on my final guy from this list.


Starlin Castro
Vladimir Guerrero
Alexei Ramírez
Aramis Ramírez
Delmon Young
Andrew Bailey
Dan Haren
Brian Wilson


Just to help a little more I added the stat categories below.

Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Strikeouts (K), Batting Average (AVG), On-base Percentage (OBP), Net Stolen Bases (NSB)

Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Quality Starts (QS), Net Saves (NSV)

Tough decision there, Haren / Delmon should be worth as much as anyone else you have (and just as boring) , I'd keep the bat.

Agree with this. There is nothing else I really like and Wilson is as good as you can get at RP.

I think I would probably keep the closer, Wilson, too. Although I would think about ARam a bit...

Could you give me some help on this choice?

None of those bats really excite me, but Haren's potential value in a rebound year does. I would keep him.

I've narrowed it down to these three: Haren, WIlson and Ramirez.

I'm surprised people are telling you to keep a closer here. 5 keepers is very shallow so I'm sure that there are very few owners keeping closers, hence there will be a large pool to redraft from. Not to mention the volatility at closer is the highest than any other position in fantasy baseball. Wilson is not an option, IMO.

Honestly, I would keep both Haren and Aramis and throw back Bautista. I know he probably carried your team last season, but the fact is he will not repeat what he just did. It can be debated whether or not his power is legit, but IMO, it cannot be debated that he will hit 50+ homers again, he simply won't do it. I like Aram better than Bautista but that is just my opinion.

If Bautista is already locked in, then my vote goes for Haren.
