Select up to 11 keepers and 4 prospect

Postby Redmond_Square » Mon Feb 07, 2011 12:48 am

I can carry over up to four of these prospects for free for next year, which 4 would you take?
Tyler Flowers, C/DH, CWS (2)
Angel "The Murderer" Villalona, 3B, SF (3)
Mike Moustakas
Julio Teheran
Jordan Danks
Adys Portillo
Greg Halman, OF, SEA (1)
Ryan Kalish, OF, BOS (1) ;-D
Michael Burgess, OF, WAS (1)
Fernando Martinez, OF, NYM (3)
Michael Main, P, TEX (1)
James McDonald, P, LAD (2)
Aaron Poreda, SP, SD (1)
Jordan Zimmerman, SP, WAS (1)
which 4 of those would you keep for free? I can also select a 5th prospect of these, but I must remove my first round pick (and start in the 2nd)

Each major league player would cost a draft pick, up to a max of 11, help:

C Buster Posey, SF C, 1B ;-D
1B Justin Morneau, Min 1B ;-D
2B Brian Roberts, Bal 2B ;-D
SS Ian Desmond, Was SS
OF Kyle Blanks, SD OF DTD
OF Brett Gardner, NYY OF ;-D
OF Delmon Young, Min OF ;-D
UTIL Paul Konerko, CWS 1B, DH ;-D
UTIL
SP C.J. Wilson, Tex SP
P Tim Hudson, Atl SP ;-D
SP Travis Wood, Cin SP
RP Hong-Chih Kuo, LAD RP
RP John Axford, Mil RP ;-D
RP Joaquin Benoit, Det RP
I was thinking about those 7 Majors Leaguers..but if you think these are marginal talent I can throw a few of these back and take the picks. What do you think and how many major leaguers would you take, b/c I ahve the option of redraft compltely if I so choose.

Why do you have Villalona in the first place? At one point he was good. But even before his arrest for suspicion of murder he was heading downhill, having gained weight and begun to fall out of shape. Even now that he is out on bail and has bribed the murder victim's family for $138k to not sue him in civil court, the prosecutor just recently told the SF Chronicle that they plan to go ahead with their case. And don't let the reports of him getting back into baseball shape fool you. His former lawyer is the one who is spreading that information, but after being pressed he admits that Villalona is playing streetball at best. No where near the level required of him.

As for James McDonald, he isn't even with the Dodgers anymore. He will likely be nothing more then a four or five guy in a weak rotation or work out of the bullpen. Definitely not worth keeping.

I would keep Moustakas, Danks, Teheran and maybe Aaron Poreda. Moustakas will likely be the starting third baseman at some point this season. Teheran has climbed fas through the minors and will likely get a call up this year, but the Braves will be cautious with him. Danks battled injuries last year but CHW wants to upgrade their OF defense and Danks is the guy to do it. He is a contact hitter with good potential. Poreda has control issues (33 walks to his 31 strikeouts) but is pretty dominating, holding opponents to .191 BA.

Posey, definitely.
Morneau, yes.
Roberts, no. 2B is a pretty deep position this year and Brian Roberts can be replaced easily.
Gardner, no.
Young, no.
Konerko, maybe.
Hudson, maybe.
Axford, yes.

In addition to Posey, Morneau and Axford I would keep CJ Wilson, Travis Wood, Ian Desmond and probably Hudson if it isn't gonna cost too high of a draft pick.
Please help me with analyzing my team? viewtopic.php?f=29&t=433592

I wouldn't keep any of your pitching. You would basically have to give up either a 6th and 7th round pick to keep them and none of them are worth it. Too much pitching this year to give up early round picks for marginal talent guys.

Moustakas and Teheran are easy picks for your prospects and both could see some time this year. I like Zimmermann, especially at such a low cost. As for a fourth you could take anyone of Kalish, Fernando or Main.
