Keeper Thoughts

Postby adeehr » Wed Feb 09, 2011 10:10 am

My league is a little different with regards to scoring, it's going to be 8x6 this year. The extra hitting categories are singles, doubles, and triples. The one extra pitching category is quality starts. We are a regular $260 cap league. Thoughts on who I should keep:

Posey $2
Delmon Young $2
KungFu Panda $3
Bruce $2
Moustakas $2
Beckham $2
Buchholz $13
Daniel Hudson $2
Lincecum $13
Danks $5
Oswalt $4
Peavy $2

I can keep a total of 7 players from this list. I know the values are low but our commish puts free agent pickups at a minimum keeper value of $2 from one year to the next and each players salary goes up 25% over the previous year. That's why I still have Lincecum for $13, I've had him since his rookies season.

Thoughts on my keepers?

Those would be my 7, Peavy is worth the risk for only $2.

Here's my list for you. I like Young slightly over Panda, and I think you have to take Oswalt over Peavy. He's much more of a sure thing and you can certainly afford the extra $2 given how cheapt your keepers are.
