they can try to trade him now but I doubt they are going to downgrade their bullpen during a playoff run to add prospects. And even if he was traded he would be the closer for any team willing to pay that price (prospects and money). And I still don't see how Bard is a better pitcher (other than his lower cost which will have Paps looking for a new team in '12).




Wow. I have no response to your "analysis." :-P !+)

And not once did I say Bard was the better pitcher. But I guess you just ignore what I say anyways. Now we are getting off topic. You like Paps better than I do. The end. :-D

You said Bard could overtake him by the end of the year. Blatantly false imo and you prefer to keep a MR instead of a very good closer. In an 8 keeper league I play it like a redraft and try to win that season. I don't think Paps is a great keeper option but he's better than the other 2.

Wow! Great analysis and feedback. Much appreciated guys!!

Here are the Vote results to my last keeper pick:

- Papelbon (Best overall keeper to win this season on a winnings team. Long term is a concern) 8 VOTES

- Chapman (Consensus agreed this flame thrower has the best highest ceiling for the long run. Unfortunately, his SP spot is not guaranteed and will likely be a MRP) 4 VOTES

- Beckham (2b position scarcity, young, fills my IF/UTIL void) 3 VOTES

I too agree that Papelbon has the most value this year. He's been my keeper the past 5 years and I've netted 0 championships. The youth and talent of Chapman and Beckham are a positive and considering NO ONE in the league is keeping any RP/CLOSERs, Papelbon can easily be retained later.

Building for the future/while trying to win this year is definitely the goal. All top bats and pitchers are already kept leaving me with the likes of Verlander, Weaver, Oswalt, Scherzer, Gallardo as my potential top 1 and 2 rd picks. Sucks I know.

A few posts requested other alternatives to these 3 keepers. They are as follows:

- J Bay
- C Quentin
- S Castro
- D Ackerly
- B Matusz
- J Niemann
- W Davis
- M Pelfrey

Should anybody from the above list be considered instead of the top 3?
