Keep 4 Help - WHIR

Postby BlackBocks » Mon Feb 21, 2011 12:27 pm

Hey all,

Just joined here...and I need some help.

I am in a modified keeper league that has been running for 5 years now. We get to keep 4 players from our previous roster and can only keep them for 2 years. We keep the player in the round they were drafted in the previous year. I need help deciding who to take as my 4 keepers. Below is a synopsis of the league settings and my players and their round drafted. Please help!!!

Yahoo H2H league.
Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base Percentage (OBP)
Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

22 Round Draft - 10 teams.
Players
David Ortix - Rnd 16
Kevin Youklis - Rnd 17
Clay Bucholtz - Rnd 14
Phil Hughes - Rnd 22
Mat Latos - Rnd 18
Tim Lincecum - Rnd 8
Francisco Liriano - Rnd 18
Jared Weaver - Rnd 14
Tommy Hanson - Rnd 17
Rickie Weeks - Rnd 20
BJ Upton - Rnd 11

To summarize...Pick 4. In the rounds they were drafted in last season. My offense has been pretty average the past years but my pitching has lead the league. I appreciate any help.

youk
hanson
weeks
liriano

if you're worried about liriano's arm, i'd also consider Latos.

Lincecum
Youkilis
Latos
Hanson

I would consider Liriano as well but his sore shoulder is a bit alarming, not that Latos has been Mr. Durability.(Weaver is a good option as well) I like Lincecum in Rd 8 but if you think that is high then consider Weaver in 14. I know this doesn't help your offense much but your pitching is superior. With a good SP core like this, you can focus on offense in the draft.

Thanks for the replies so far...keep them coming!

Am I wrong to question Latos being on the Padres? They are going to be awful.

I was considering Weeks due to the lack of depth at 2b and Utley/Cano are being kept.

You've got some great values there, so it's tough to have to throw some of them back. Here are my four choices:

Kevin Youklis - Rnd 17
Tim Lincecum - Rnd 8
Francisco Liriano - Rnd 18
Tommy Hanson - Rnd 17

Latos and Weeks were my final two cuts. Latos being a Padre doesn't worry me all that much because he pitches at Petco, but I do prefer Hanson to him this season. As for Weeks, he's a steal in round 20, but I still prefer keeping the three big arms over him... you've got an excellent start to your rotation then, and can focus on hitting early in the draft.

I'd keep Youk and Weeks for sure. Lincecum is a good bargain for an 8th rounder and I'd give the slight nod to Liriano over Latos and Hanson as the 4th keeper.
