My keeper dilemna...too many choices WHIR

Postby mj85 » Mon Feb 28, 2011 10:11 pm

My roster is in my sig and as you can see I have several guys that I could take for my 7th keeper. Its the 4th year of a 12 team 5x5 Head to Head league (I've won the title twice so I am competitive).

Here are my solid keepers:

1. Tex
2. A Gonzalez
3. Lester
4. Holliday
5. Uggla
6. Reyes

Now for the 7th, I'm stuck. I've got:

M Stanton
F Liriano

I just made a 2 for 1 (Bruce/Rios to get Holliday) and I'm wondering if I should try to package Reyes/Liriano for Tulowitzki. I love Stanton's power but I've always had a thing for Liriano. What say you?12 Team H2H

First off, if you can pull off a Reyes/Liriano for Tulo swap, I'd absolutely do it.

As for your final keeper swap (without a trade), I think Liriano is the most valuable of the three players, but Stanton and Alvarez have oodles of potential and upside. Personally, I would take Stanton and his monster HR potential, but it's not a clear cut decision to me.

if you can get tulo do it, otherwise im def keeping liriano, the guy is a potential ace and has the upside of a top 10 pitcher. not to mention you already have a really solid group of hitters and only lester as a pitcher
