Early Keepers

Postby wkpdpack » Sat Feb 05, 2011 12:02 am

I'm in a keeper league where we keep 7 plus up to 5 on our minor league bench. It's a 5x5 roto scoring league. 12 teams. I've posted my lineup below.

Are any of the following guys worth dealing Jiminez for?

Uggla
Weeks
Alexei Ramirez
McCutcheon
J. Upton
Jeter

Is it worth considering keeping A. Hill or Konerko rather than Jiminez or Hamels since pitching is pretty deep this year and hitting doesn't seem to be as deep? We keep 7 each year. I was planning to keep the first 7 right now.

My team:
Braun
Wright
Howard
Kemp
Cliff Lee
Posey
Jiminez
Hamels
Hill
Marmol
Konerko
K. Suzuki
Span
G. Sanchez
As. Cabrera
Bourn
B. Anderson
C. Lewis
Minor bench: Fowler, Arencibia, Ianetta, C. Kelly, J. Decker

I would take Upton or AM easily for Jimenez.
I like your 7.

;-D

Like he said. If you can get Upton or AM, that is a big win for you.
I also think you have the correct 7.

I would get Upton for him, I like Jimeniz, but he is a pitcher and will be more prone to injuries and lose of stuff, and also he does play in colorado which can really screw a pitcher up, if I can get Upton for for then go for it, otherwise your keepers are correct

help with mine?

McCutchen or Uggla for Jiminez would be a good deal

That is the only deal I would make

I would not keep Konerko over either SP

Aaron HIll is interesting, you have no other 2b, and I think he'll have a bounceback year. Looking at who your 7 keepers would be I would go

Braun
Wright
Howard
Kemp
Lee
Posey
Hamels

I would keep your first five plus McCutchen and Justin Upton. I like Ubaldo, but I think his second half was indicative of him regressing a bit. He's a top pitching talent, but I'd say you should keep your two most promising bats remaining.

This was my initial reaction as well, but I think leaving off Posey could be a mistake. I would probably keep Posey so that I wouldn't have to worry about drafting a C (unless its a 2 C league). Then I would either keep Hamels, or trade Jiminez for McCutchen/Upton.

If you can find a team who does not have any good SPs to keep, I'd make an offer of Hamels and Jiminez for a good power hitter as your 7th keeper.

Solid Keepers. I'd trade Cutch/Upton for Jimenez no doubt.

Thanks for help with mine.
