*Trade Completed + Help with Keeper Q

Postby stlcards02 » Sat Feb 05, 2011 3:22 am

It's a 20-team league and we keep 8. It's a points league with the following cats/pts:
Batting: 1b/2B/3B/HR - 1-4, Rbi 2, R 2, SB 3, K's -0.5, BB 1
Pitching: IP 3, K 1.2, ER/BB/H -1, SV 7, QS 5, CG 7, ShO 10

Just made this trade:

Get: Holliday, Kershaw
Send: McCann, Johnson, Jeter

Now I wanted to send Zobrist, as SS is shallow this year, but oh well. I think Kershaw isn't too far off of Johnson, and Johnson scares me a bit with his injury last year. Holliday is a def upgrade for my offense. I think I did good, right?

Now I got to decide on my last keeper. It'll be these guys for sure.

2B: Utley-
3B: Longo-
OF: Zobrist (The only guy I'm iffy on)
OF: Holliday
P: Ubaldo-
P: Kershaw
P: Marmol

Now, for the last spot. Do I keep another Sp? Sp basically won the league last year, but Volquez is no sure thing. Stubbs is a guy I really like, and may keep him over Zobrist anyway. Or Should I stash Trout?

OF: Trout
OF: Stubbs
BN: Volquez

I like the trade. Stubbs is a easy keep. I keep Trout, because i'm not big on Zobrist or Volquez.

I would be ok with this. Keep Stubbs and Trout and let Zobrist go.

I agree with Hootie, except that I like Zobrist and Vloquez. Even so, Stubbs is the pretty easy choice, in my opinion.

I like the trade. If given the choice I'd probably take Kershaw over Johnson straight up. I think he's going to have a great year while Johnson is always an injury risk and he may not get many wins no matter how well he pitches.

As far as the keepers, I don't agree with the rest of the posters. Stubbs is the sure choice in a 5X5 roto league, but in your league I'd go with Zobrist. They both have similar XBH totals, but Zobrist takes a lot of walks while Stubbs strikes out quite a bit. Add in some positional versatility and Zobrist is your man.

I also wouldn't keep Trout just because he's a long ways away. I like the guy as a minor leaguer, but probably wouldn't keep him at the expense of major league talent. So I'd go with Volquez. A guy who can strike out a batter an inning has value no matter which format you're playing in.

how long you get to keep keepers?

Stubbs 20/20 is the choice here, Trout is still a few seasons away and even then his power isn't developed yet.

Thanks for the help. I'm still pretty torn. I think I may end up keeping both Zobrist and Stubbs. The only reason I contemplate keeping Volquez is that pitching was the key last year for many teams, and pitching will go fast.

I have a guy interested in Zobrist and he has Romero and Nolasco on his block. I like both better than Volquez, so I might inquire about that.
