Keeper Help!! need some advice

Postby 050521640 » Sun Feb 27, 2011 9:39 am

League is a 12 team h2h. doubles are counted and obp instead of avg. Quality starts also included. We will be keeping 8-10 keepers with the 9th and 10th keepers counting as your first two draft picks.
my team:
Jose Bautista
CarGo
Kemp
Morales
Nyger Morgan
Pedroia
HanRamirez
Mark Reynolds
Vernon Wells
Weiters

Cain
Cordero
De La Rosa
Gallardo
Jenks
Kazmir
Lilly
Qualls
Rauch
Wandy Rodriguez
Sabathia
Matt Thornton

So far im thinking---- Bautista, CarGo, Kemp, Morales, Pedroia, HanRam, Sabathia, Cain, Gallardo
Im really struggling with who my last keeper should be Reynolds, Wieters, Wandy or someone else??? any suggestions out there???

Reynolds

In a standard league I'd go with him and with your league using OBP instead of BA he looks even better.

I'll take Wieters. I think he has a breakout year.

Thanks for the advice, I was wondering if I should keep weiters too over reynolds so that I have a C since I can use Bautista at 3rd, any other thoughts?

Wandy is a no-no. I don't trust that arm.

Wieters over Reynolds is an interesting debate for sure, especially with OBP counted instead of AVG. I think I go with Wieters, but be sure to temper your expectations for this year--this is more of a long-term keep. He could eventually be a top 3 catcher in a year or two. He has all the tools and hopefully puts them together quickly.

I'd go with Reynolds too. As long as you don't mind the mini-slumps that come with him striking out a good deal, Reynolds' value gets a boost without BA.
