Who to Keep?

Postby wkpdpack » Sat Feb 26, 2011 5:46 pm

I will be taking over the team below in a keeper/auction league. It looks like it will be a 10 team league with a $260 salary cap. I can keep as many players as I want as long as I stay within my salary cap. However, the league is 4 less teams this year so there will be some considerable talent to bid on...Howard, Fielder, ARod, Cano, Cruz,Gallardo, Greinke, Uggla, P. Alvarez, Wright and others that are not kept. There is one other new owner this year and the two of us should have quite a bit of money to spend at the auction.

Scoring is 1 pt. for double, 2 pts. for triple, -0.5 for each AB, 1 pt. for BB, 2.5 pts for a hit, 3 pts. for a HR, -0.5 for a K, 1 pt for a run, 1 pt per RBI, and 2 pts per SB. Pitching categories are -0.5 per BBI, -2 per ER, -1 per HA, -0.5 per HB, 3 pt per inning, 0.5 per K, -4 per Loss, 3 pts per QS, 7 pts per save, and 6 pts. per win. We start 1 C, 1 1B, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 SS, 3 OF, 1 U, 4 SP, 1 RP, 1 SP or RP and 10 Reserve.

I'll be keeping Youkilis, Pedroia for sure.
Probably will keep Markakis, Pierre, D. Hudson
Do I keep Pena, Roberts, Drew, Lilly, Broxton or any others or keep the money for the auction??

Ugh. That is a pretty bad situation you just took over, sorry to say.

Youk and Pedroia are good keeps, and have very good prices. How is A-Rod 72, but Youk 5? That's crazy.

Hudson is a must-keep for that price. Markakis is priced well and should have a better year with an improved lineup (ditto that for Brian Roberts as well). I supose Pierre is fine for that price, for a source of cheap steals.

Pena and Drew I would keep--decent prices. Broxton has a nice price, but a questionable situation.

I'd be especially tempted to hold on to Roy Halladay for 50. You've done pretty well so far with your keepers, and I think you can afford to keep one of your bigger price-tags if you want. I'd go 50 for Halladay, and then go out and try to get another two $50 price-tag guys.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I agree 100% here.
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray
