Who should I keep?

Postby Bherman13 » Wed Mar 02, 2011 2:00 pm

I've inherited a... well what I see as a weak team in a friend's keeper league. I'm having trouble deciding who to keep. I get to keep 8, and have the 6th overall pick of 12 teams.

here's the team:
José Bautista
Jay Bruce
Asdrubal Cabrera
David Freese
Cristian Guzmán
Brad Hawpe
Aaron Hill
Derek Jeter
Carlos Lee
James Loney
Bengie Molina
David Ortiz
Álex Rodríguez
Denard Span
Drew Stubbs

Bronson Arroyo
Joaquín Benoit
Brett Cecil
Tyler Clippard
Barry Enright
Yovani Gallardo
Jon Garland
Clayton Kershaw
Brad Lidge
Joe Nathan
CC Sabathia
José Valverde
Jason Vargas

Who I would keep: Jose Bautista(not a fan but lack of options), Jay Bruce(predicting at least 30 hr, 90 rbi), James Loney, Alex Rodriguez, CC Sabathia, Clayton Kershaw, Yovani Gallardo, Joe Nathan

What do you guys think? Who would you keep and why?

You really only have six keepers IMO. Hill is above-average, but given the rest of your options, he makes the cut. I hate keeping closers, but again, not a ton of options. Nathan is coming off injury, but is one of the best when he's in. Do not keep Loney - he's ok, but you can definitely do better or grab him later on in the draft.

How do you rank these SPs? viewforum.php?f=26

I agree with Fantasy GM except I really dont think you can keep a closer I would rather you go with a guy like Carlos Lee instead of Joe Nathan. Another thing I might try and do is trade some of that pitching for some upgrades, Kershaw CC and Gallardo are all quality arms. See you can upgrade at a position or maybe do like a Bautista Sabathia for little weaker Pitcher and a younger position player. Bautista wont see much time in the OF this year and that will make you have 2 of the top 5 ranked 3 basemen this year so try and move him. His numbers from last year were all way above avg and I honestly dont think he will be able to do that again this year.

If you cant make a move I think this year is a rebuilding year. Would suggest taking a lot of risks with some younger players or grab a Helickson type of player earlier then you should.
