Keep which 3?

Postby Carnac » Sat Feb 12, 2011 2:32 pm

What 3 would you keep? 12 team league with standard 5x5 scoring

Justin Upton 15th round
Martin Prado 14th round qualifies at 2B, 3B and OF
Mike Napoli 12th round like him in the Ranger's lineup
Jered Weaver 4th round better value than Lilly?
Ted Lilly 13th round coming back from surgery, will miss about a month?
Andre Ethier 4th round

Upton is a no brainer for his round. Trying to decide between Prado, Napoli, Weaver and Lilly.

My order as of now

Upton 15
Prado 14
Weaver 6
Napoli 12
Lilly 13

Who would you keep and why. Leave a link for yours.

Thanks for the help with mine..I like Prado with one pick and the other one I'd go with Napoli..Are they going to give him some ab's at 1st? if they do I'd go with Nap for sure. Thanks for the help.

I am not crazy about your keepers but that being said I would probably have to go with it in this order. I think this is the best order for you and I think you can get Weaver and Lilly at those rounds in the draft if not later.

Upton 15
Prado 14
Napoli 12
Weaver 6
Lilly 13

are these your last few selections, or are they your top keeper options? Do you have to keep 3? I'm really not liking these options...
So if I had to keep 3... I think I'd go with Upton, prado and probably weaver. yes, you might get something better in the 4th, but given your poor options, if the worst you do is weaver (who is elite) in that round... thats certainly not so bad.
thanks for commenting on mine.

Weaver or Ethier would be fine with me.

We don't keep any player drafted in the first 3 rounds.
The consensus seems to be:

Justin Upton in the 15th round (kept him in the 18th last year)
Prado 14th (he was drafted by another team then dropped, I picked him up after Pedroia went down)
Weaver 6th (was back and forth between him and Napoli), but was leaning toward Weaver.

Thanks for the help.
