Can choose 7 keepers, need some help narrowing down. WHIR!

Postby Subversive » Sun Mar 06, 2011 12:47 pm

Ok, so I dominated my league last year with this roster, and i really want to repeat! I need some help narrowing down my keepers. This is a 12 team, mixed league auction style. $260 salary cap, 23 man rosters. I can keep up to 7 of the following players (ineligible keepers are noted). each player has their keeper price next to them. I'll respond to yours if you let me know which 7 you would keep. Thanks.

C Napoli $5
C Thole $3
1B Cabrera $38
2B Phillips $29
3B McGehee $4
SS Reyes $27
CI Howard $38
MI Desmond $5
OF Crawford $30
OF Lind $6
OF Matsui $3
OF Upton BJ $28
OF Gardner $3
OF Rios $13
BN Zimmerman R $14
P Halladay $27
P Cecil $3
P Jimenez $5
P Kennedy $5
P Lincecum (ineligible to keep)
P Marcum $4
P Rivera $28
P Wainwright (ineligible to keep)
P Zambrano $7
Bn Morrow $7
IR Penny $3

Based on my early thoughts, there's about 12 players here who would likely be good value keepers. I need to pick the best 7. As I said, I'll tag this thread to be watched, and will respond on your thread if you reply on this one. Thanks.
Bah, humbug.

Nice squad, definitely have some tough choices to make. Looks like some of your guys have are pretty expensive. Just my two cents, I think your no-doubters are:

Cabrera (I always like to make sure I keep one big bat, and $38 isn't too expensive for him)
Zimmerman ($14!)
Rios

Jimenez
Marcum
Morrow

Then I'm torn here between
Halladay, who at $27 is still a deal, and Desmond, who will definitely outplay $5. Keeping 4 arms is tough, but I'm not a huge fan of Desmond though, so I go Halladay, recognizing that some people prefer to keep much cheaper players in this type of format.

Help me out?

These look to be your best values. I would be ok keeping Rios over Crawford but I think Crawford is a safer bet.

I think the money saved on some of these others gems could be used to get Halladay back... I was also tempted on Reyes due to position... But you have saved some money here. If you think your league will be down on McCab's recent events, but could hang on to one of them Doc or Reyes and pursue him. You have some nice low $ values that I cannot pass.

Help me out!!!

I concur, even though Gardner for 3 is awfully tempting.

This takes 3b/CI/SS/2 Stud Starters theory out of play and let's you focus on getting a 1b and 2b which shouldn't be too difficult with the depth of these positions.

Wow, lotta variations on who to keep. For the record, my thoughts on possibilities before I started this thread were the following players...

C Napoli $5
SS Reyes $27
OF Crawford $30
OF Lind $6
OF Gardner $3
OF Rios $13
BN Zimmerman R $14
P Halladay $27
P Jimenez $5
P Marcum $4
Bn Morrow $7

I feel like I should be able to get MCab back for $38 or less at auction, so that's not a good investment. The 100% no brainers, to me, are Jimenez for $5 and Gardner for $3. As well, I think Halladay would likely go for close to $35 at auction, so he's probably solid at $27. If I kept Crawford at $30 and Reyes at $27, I basically have steals all taken care of and can focus on power power power at the auction. I'm also surprised by no love for Napoli at $5. 25HR for $5 with muti-position (including C) eligibility doesn't get anyone's juices flowing? Rios at $13 is possibly good value, but he also makes me nervous about a regression.
Bah, humbug.
