Who To Keep?

Postby bradlee » Wed Feb 09, 2011 12:29 am

We keep three players in the ROUND they were drafted in last year. So I drafted Jason Heyward in the 14th round last year so I can keep him as my 14th round pick this year.

6x6 14 Team League Roto with OPS and QS.

So far I am keeping:
RD Player
11 Gonzalez, Carlos(OF) COL
14 Heyward, Jason(OF) ATL


For my last keeper who should I keep:

23 Alvarez, Pedro(3B) PIT
or
19 Latos, Mat(SP) SD

Alvarez for me, although most folks probably rate Latos higher.

I'm going with Matt Latos here. He showed top notch stuff and is in the best pitchers park there is. Alvarez is too big of a BA risk with that terrible strikeout rate.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

Latos for me. Alvarez is surely a breakout candidate, but I do think people put too much emphasis on a strong September when valuing him. The high K rate is a concern and he doesn't quite have the track record in the bigs yet to suggest he'll take the next step this year. Both are terrific values, but I'd be more inclined to take Latos in spite of the innings jump (his peripherals were fantastic).

I would keep Latos IMO. A pitcher with top notch stuff....I think he is going to be one of the better pitchers in the NL this season

;-D Agree with all of this. Latos innings spike worries me but not nearly as much as Alvarez's K rate.
