My Keepers...would you change anything?

Postby Burt » Sat Feb 26, 2011 6:13 pm

We start C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, 4 OF, Util, 4 SP, 3 RP....and can keep 15 players. The keepers I'm leaning toward are in bold.

C Weiters
1B Pujols
1B Teixeira
2B Utley
3B Longoria

3B Alvarez
SS Tulowitzski
OF Braun
OF N Cruz
OF Crawford

OF Rios
OF Pence

SP Lincecum
SP Hanson
SP Billingsley
SP Carpenter
SP Liriano

SP Wolf
SP Lilly
SP Marcum
SP Matusz
SP Strasburg
RP Bell
RP Rodney

Any suggestions? I've considered Alvarez instead of Weiters.

I like Alvarez over Wieters, I also like Pence, but don't see any room for him.

I would change 3 things:

Add: Alvarez, Pence, Matusz

Drop: Wieters, Carpenter, Liriano


Wieters is still a couple years from being a big time catcher option, whereas Alvarez could "arrive" as early as this year. However the argument against that is that you already have Longoria as a 3B, so it's up to you.

I like Hunter Pence a lot, and I'm not sure why he doesn't get more attention from people. He will hit close to .290, hit about 25 HRs, drive in 100 runs and steal 15-20 bases. How do you not like that?

And, I'm digging Brian Matusz this year. Combine that with the fact that Liriano is ALREADY having arm problems, and I'd go with the potential break-out pitcher of the year. He's getting hyped, but for good reason.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

I'd make these two changes:

Add: Alvarez, Pence

Drop: Wieters, Carpenter

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
