4 out of 6

Postby BurtMancuso » Sat Feb 26, 2011 2:23 am

Hello from Germany!

I'm looking for some opinions concerning my keepers. I'm playing in a 14-Team-Daily-H2H-League.
Categories: AVG, OBP, SLG, R, RBI, HR, SB, K, and W, L, CG, K, HLD, SV, INNpG, WHIP
Roster: C, 1B, 2B, 3B,SS, 3 OF, DH, 5 SP and 3 RP

I have to choose 4 out of 6 and i can keep my 3 minor leaguers.
F-Her, Lincecum, Mauer, Holliday, Crawford, Hamilton
Stanton, Chapman, Freeman
Right now, I'm leaning towards keeping F-Her, Holliday, Crawford, Hamilton and promoting Stanton and Chapman. On the other side, I would like to keep Lincecum. So I would have to drop an OF. My first choice would be Hamilton. Then I would promote Stanton. My OF would be set, and I have 2 of the best P even before the Draft.

I appreciate your help!

I usually go big with the hitters. SP is so deep this year, you can honestly not even start to draft pitchers until the middle to late rounds. That's just my opinion. I would stick with hamilton.

You need to keep King Felix--no doubt on that one. An under-the-radar signing this year for the M's has been Miguel Olivo--yes, the same guy who caught for Greinke two years ago (Cy Young year), and Ubaldo Jimenez last year (monster break-out first half). I don't know how much better King Felix can get, but if he can, Olivo will bring it out in him.

Other than him, gotta keep 3 bats. I agree on Holliday. He is VASTLY underrated in roto leagues, and is useful in any format. He has been consistently in the top 15-20 in fantasy the last couple years, and you just can't mess with that.

Crawford had his career year last year, and now that he's in a loaded Red Sox lineup and in Fenway (favors lefties), there's no telling what his numbers could be--I'm hoping at least for a repeat, and maybe even above 20 HRs.

The last spot is tough. I know a LOT of people love Hamilton, but I'm wary of the Rangers. I'm also especially wary of players with injury histories. I know Joe Mauer isn't THAT much better in that department, but I think when you have a chance to keep the BEST player at a specific position, you should take it. It's your decision.

I wouldn't worry about keeping Lincecum though. Both Mauer and Hamilton are more valuable--it's all about the bats.

I think this one is easy. King Felix, Holliday, Crawford andHamilton. Mauer is great, but if you ignore 2009, he is not that much better than the other top catchers. Also, no need to keep Lincecum when you already have King. I expect a drop off in Lincecum's performance this year after all the extra post season innings.
