Pick 1 keeper out of 3. WHIR

Postby panjam » Mon Jan 31, 2011 8:44 pm

Long term, 12 team, 12x12, head-head league. We keep 8.

C Mauer*
1B Votto*
2B Pedroia*
SS Jeter
3B Wright*
OF Kemp*
OF Bautista
OF Rasmus
UTIL BJ Upton

SP Latos*
SP Jiminez*
SP Buchholz
SP Nolasco
SP Ian kennedy

Anybody agree/disagree with these selections? I've only starred 7 so far. I think those are obvious keepers, but I'm not so sure about the last one. It's between Jeter, Bautista, and Buchholz. Who would you keep out of those three? It's tough throwing Jeter back in since good SS are hard to come by, but he's getting old and pitching is at a premium in this league (almost everybody keeps 3-4 SPs).

Thanks.

I think you have to keep Bautista. I doubt he repeats last year but he still should be a pretty good player. It is either that or Rasmus but I think I believe in Bautista more than I do Rasmus.

I agree I say you roll with Bautista here, but don't expect 50HR again.....30 tops, consider yourself lucky if he hits 35, just saying.

There maybe a case for Buchholz over Latos, just the fact that he will be pitching on one of the best lineups in Baseball. However I do like Latos too.

Bautista, but i could see BJ too.
Buchholz is going to regress quite a bit given his FIP and xFIP, and K/9 rate.

I'd go with Bautista too and the keepers as-is.

Just focus your draft on pitching and you should be good to go.

Help with mine?

Thanks for the help.

Looks like Bautista is the most popular choice. It really sucks throwing Jeter and Buchholz back in the draft. Hopefully there will be another SS or some decent SP available when I pick.
