Need help picking 4 keepers out of 8! (WHIR)

Postby Getafe22 » Fri Feb 25, 2011 2:34 am

First time redrafting in a keeper league. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Four player keeper league, draft league, you draft the player in the same round he was drafted in the year before. League is roto with the usual 5x5 plus OPS and K/BB. Any player currently on our rosters can be traded for draft picks or other players until our draft in a couple of weeks. Out of the players listed below, which 4 would you keep, which would you try to trade for the best return? What do you think players you would not keep would get in return as trade bait for picks?

If you keep two players in the same round - one of the players moves to the round AFTER his round. So two 5th round keepers would become a 5th and 6th round keeper.

Player (round drafted):

Miggy (1)
Longoria (2)
Lincecum (2)
Josh Johnson (5)
Dan Uggla (12)
Corey Hart (17)
Jose Bautista (undrafted; 23)
Trevor Cahill (undrafted; 23)

Thanks!

Josh Johnson (5)
Dan Uggla (12)
Corey Hart (17)
Jose Bautista (undrafted; 23)
Trevor Cahill (undrafted; 23)

miggy (if there are no penalties from his current situation)
longoria(one of the best in a weak group)
lincecum(gives you an anchor for your staff)
Uggla(good power from a thin position)
i know that you would be giving up your first three picks, but those three get you off to a good start. if you feel bautista is a one hit wonder you can see if anyone overvalues him for a draft pick. if you think hes for real you cant go wrong losing a 23rd round pick for him and drop uggla.

Thank you, my original plan was to keep Miggy, Lincecum, Longoria, and Bautista. Even if Bautista regresses it should still be incredible value at 23.

I didn't know if I should convince myself to take Uggla, JJ or Hart and trade off Lincecum for picks.

Raiders umpire, if I may ask, what makes you prefer taking Longoria and Uggla (2 and 12) instead of Longoria and Lincecum (2 and 3)? Seems like at worst their value is early round 1, and round 2. Getting them at round 2 and late round 3 seems like good value.
