I can only keep 4!!! Please help!!!

Postby Therobsclub » Fri Feb 18, 2011 12:59 am

Well I can keep 0-4. Ranging from a 60 dollar entry fee to 120 dollar entry fee. Here is my team and their value to keep:

PLAYER, TEAM POS ACQ
Miguel Montero, Ari C 13
Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B 56
Neil Walker, Pit 3B, 2B 15
Chris Johnson, Hou 3B 13
Ian Desmond, Was SS 2
Ichiro Suzuki, Sea OF 19
Andre Ethier, LAD OF 27
Vladimir Guerrero, Tex DH, OF 9
Jason Heyward, Atl OF 18
Tommy Hanson, Atl SP 27
Heath Bell, SD RP 22
Billy Wagner, Atl RP 15
Carlos Marmol, ChC RP 12
Chris Sale, CWS SP, RP 11
Craig Kimbrel, Atl RP 11
Clayton Kershaw, LAD SP 25
Jered Weaver, LAA SP 20
David Murphy, Tex OF 13
Madison Bumgarner, SF RP, SP 11
Tim Stauffer, SD SP, RP 11
Brandon Webb, Ari SP 20
Kevin Youkilis, Bos 3B, 1B 43


So I'm thining the obvious keepers would be Vlad and Heyward. I'm leaning toward Marmol at 12 and or keep 2 of my studs of Weaver, Hanson, and/or Kershaw...I'm starting out with $250 because I traded some cap space away. What should I do?

I wouldn't keep buying on Vlad even at that price. He is no longer in the hitters park he was, so I would expect a decline in numbers. I would let someone else pay to find out what those numbers will be.

I don't love Kershaw at $25 but I don't love anyone else either. I don't have much faith in Bumgarner. Kimbrel could be a steal at $11 but no guarantees there. Same with Sale. So I am left with Kershaw who should earn that $25 and probably more.

Hanson(10-11) went for $27 last year, its gotta be couple bucks less this year? bid him back to that and keep an underpriced player instead
Hey
Marmol
Kershaw
Weaver
all priced under what it would take to reacquire. Vlad will go for more than that but you don't really wanna play the "1 more good year" game if you have other value choices.

Seems like the concensus is:

Marmol 12
Heyward 18
Weaver 20
Kershaw 25/Hanson 27

Can't do Bumgarner, sounds like he's starting in triple A.
