Keep up to 5 - WHIR

Postby Cream » Fri Feb 18, 2011 7:50 pm

I have some tough decisions in a 12 team, auction, h2h, keeper league. I can keep up to 5 players at the prices listed. Our budget is $260.

Edit: Each year a player is kept the price will be increased $5 starting in 2012 (if that changes anyone's decision)

C
1B - Butler - $12
2B - Beckham - $16
3B - Longoria - $29
SS -
MI - Prado - $1
CI - ARam - $15
OF - Holiday - $27
OF - J. Upton - $27
OF - Lind - $19
OF - Choo - $16
OF - Hart - $1
Util - Reynolds - $20
BN - Bay - $18

P - Felix - $29
P - Anderson - $8
P - Capps - $1
P - Floyd - $4
P - Liriano - $2
P - W. Rodrigues - $8
P - Edwin Jackson - $1
P - Zambrano - $1
P - Nolasco - $9

I think I have to keep 5, but which 5? I could go with a few high priced guys like Longoria and Felix, but there is a lot value in some of my pitching staff and Prado/Hart.

Thoughts?

I'm tempted to say Felix, but SP is pretty deep this year. If you keep Wandy at $8 and then bid on Felix, you probably get more bang for your buck vs. keeping Felix and then bidding on Wandy (not that you want Wandy, just using him a illustrate the point).

I also really like ARam at $15. His 2nd half last year was stellar. However, because his overall numbers weren't as solid, you might be able to get him for about the same price anyway.

I think in the end your best value is probably Prado for $1...particularly with his multi-positional eligibility.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=422246

This is probably what I would do but Anderson at $8 is very intriguing.

3B - Longoria - $29
MI - Prado - $1
OF - Choo - $16
OF - Hart - $1
P - Anderson - $8
P - Liriano - $2

This is what I would do. At $1 I would grab Prado In my league he has 2B/3B eligibiltity and I think he is being moved to the OF so that is a added benefit. I like Anderson alot as well. If healthy he can be a big boost especially in the ERA and WHIPs department.

Prado
Liriano
Choo
Hart
longoria...he'll probably go for around that much, maybe a few $ more but you at least lock him down for this year.
