Keeper League Question

Postby irishstephen071 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 8:30 pm

I'm in a H2H with OBP, Runs, RBIs, HRs, SBs, Ks, SVs, QS, ERA, Whip as the catagories. It is a 10 league team and we have minor leaguers also (pitchers are considered a minor leaguer till 50 inn pitched and a hitter till 150 AB)

This is my team from last year along with my minor leaguers and I get to keep 8 players:
C - Buster Posey (24)
1B - David Ortiz (10)
2B - Howie Kendrick (12)
3B - David Wright (1)
SS - Ian Desmond (24)
OF - Andrew McCutchen (23) *
OF - Torii Hunter (6)
OF - Delmon Young (24)
UTIL - James Loney (24)
BN - Carlos Beltran (12)
BN - Kendry Morales (23)

SP - Mat Latos (23)
SP - Madison Bumgarner (24)
SP - Jonathan Sanchez (9)
SP - C.J. Wilson (24)
SP - Mark Buehrle (17)
SP - Johnny Cueto (20)
SP - Jake Westbrook (24)
SP - Travis Wood (24)

RP - Joe Nathan (24)
RP - Andrew Bailey (4)
RP - Chris Perez (13)
RP - Francisco Cordero (5)
RP - Daniel Bard (24)

Minor League Players
Tim Beckham - SS (TB)
Tim Alderson - SP (PIT)
Aaron Hicks - OF (MIN)
Lars Anderson - 1B (BOS)
Julio Teheran - P (ATL)
Michael Taylor- OF (OAK)
Mike Montgomery - P (KC)

I have the second pick in the draft. I've made a few trades and lost a few draft picks and gained a few. I traded for Buster Posey and lost my 7th rd but gained a 7th rd back when I traded later in the year, also gained another 8th rd and 13th. Just traded for Ubaldo Jimenez, gave up my 2nd rd for him. He is a 11th rd keeper. As of right now my draft rds are as follows: 1,3,4,5,6,7,8,8,9,10,11,12,13,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24

Right now I have selected my keepers as:
C/1B Buster Posey
1B Kendry Morales
OF Andrew McCutchen
OF Delmon Young
SP Ubaldo Jimenez
SP Madison Bumgarner
SP Mat Latos
RP Joe Nathan

The reason I don't have David Wright as one of my keepers is because the guy with the first pick in the draft through back Pujols so I'm not afraid of losing Wright as if I do I will get Pujols, I know Wright is a top 3B guy and it put a hole in my 3B for me but I would have 1B shored up for years. I'm also thinking of dropping Young in favor of Cueto since Young is about the same tier as most of the OF out there that aren't in the top tier or two and I believe I could pick him up later in the draft or someone of equal value and if I kept Cueto I would have a pretty stout SP staff to start with and build with and possible have no worries of losing the pitching catagories. Pls let me know what you think, any help is appreciated. I have till March 1st to change my keepers.

You've got it right - I wouldn't change a thing. Keep Young - let Cueto go.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

I, too, would keep Young over Cueto. Pitching is much, much deeper this year than last. Plus, my philosophy is to keep the hitters and draft the pitching. Much easier to find a pitcher that wasn't expected to good vs. finding a hitter that surprises all.
