Keeper help (WHIR)

Postby razzy » Sat Feb 26, 2011 12:55 pm

Need help with my keepers... This is an NL only league, categories are 5 X 5 plus OBP and SLG for hitters, and 5 X 5 plus TB allowed and K/BB for pitchers

Positions are C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OF, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P

I can keep 3 of the following players... Aramis Ramirez, Hamels, Weeks, Bourn, Carlos Lee, McGehee, Alfonzo Soriano, Victorino, Espinosa, Branden Allen and Travis Wood.

I think the first two are keepable, but after that, its a tough choice. I like Weeks but dont trust his health, and the others seem to all be about the same, none of them quite keeper worthy players.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks... Post a link for your question and I'll help...

Hamels, Weeks, McGahee (i'd trust him over an old 3b who just has little to offer).
Take McGahee in his prime in a great lineup over Aramis. C'mon yall.

I wouldn't call 32 old. Just 1 year older then Pujols.

Check out ARam 2nd half splits. 15 hrs/51 rbs.
He was unlucky with a .245 babip, way under his career norm of .287.

McGehee is already 28 himself. He's ok, but he never made it to bigs till age 27.

I'm honestly not a fan of A-Ram OR Weeks. This is a difficult decision to make, and I might sound ridiculous, but here's who I would keep:

Hamels (by far the best player on that list)
Casey McGehee (perhaps the most underrated 3B--he is better than A-Ram IMO)
Shane Victorino (he's the poor man's 5 tool star--look at that line from last year!)

Keeping Victorino might sounds nuts, but he's a safe bet to go 90-15-.290-75-30. He'll be hitting at the top of the Phillies lineup this year (Charlie is going to realize after a while Victorino should be 1 or 2), and he had a nice power surge last year. I think he'll keep it up.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)
