KEEPER HELP

Postby arsxfc » Sat Mar 05, 2011 3:49 pm

Guys, you were great last year with your advice and it got me my 1st championship in a pay-for-play league!!

So the decision this year is who I should keep, need 3:

zimmerman
youkilis
uggla
adrian gonzalez
jeff weaver

I got the 5th overall pick with
david wright
utley
longoria
halladay
pedroia
lincecum
and whoever I drop from the list above as the top available players.

Who should I keep and if halladay gets to me at 5 do I grab him. I am leaning zimmerman, gonzalez and uggla (for the positional scarcity) but I keep waffling between youkilis and uggla as the last keeper. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The 4th pick says he will pick whoever I drop so there is no chance I can pick my release player back up. Thank you.

I would go Gonzo, Youk and Zimmerman.

Try for Halladay, Utley, or Pedroia.

Actually, I am going to give you a slight disgression:
It would seem top 2b are being kept, so I'll differ just slightly

You have enough 3b on your roster and with so many stud 3b being kept throw Youk back and do this:
1b A. Gonzalez
2b Uggla
3b zimmerman

Doing this adds ANOTHER good 3b in the first round and it will increase the odds of getting the player you really want with your pick maybe Halladay or Tulowitzki? I'd take Uggla the safe option instead of hoping for an injury-plagued season out of Utley. ;-D

Tulo is a keeper from another team. I like uggla b/c of the positional scarcity at 2b. I think that I can make up the lost production at 3b then i can at 2b. So the question now is: Zimmerman or Youk?

wow - no love for Jeff Weaver here???? I'm guessing you meant Jered... lol

I'd go:
zimmerman
uggla
adrian gonzalez

Feel free to pull the trigger on Halladay. What are the OF's looking like?

Straight value is my opinion.

If Cruz is kept, then the highest rankied OF available witll be Matt Kemp, and I don't see me taking him at 5...
the first 5 best available according to me:

longoria, halladay, wright, utley, Zimmerman (or Youk), Lincecum, Kemp
