Last Keeper: Greinke, Beckham, D. Young?

Postby Ryno23 » Wed Mar 09, 2011 6:05 pm

We keep 10 for the first time in a 10-team, mixed 7x7 league (std 5x5 with hitter Ks and Es and pitcher Ls and HLDs) with 27-man rosters.

Locked in keepers:
C:
1B: Votto
2B:
3B: Youkilis (after 5 games)
SS:
CI: Fielder
MI:
LF: C. Gonzalez
CF: Kemp
RF: Bruce
OF: Stanton
OF:
SP: J. Johnson
SP: D. Price
RP:

I think my last spot comes down to Greinke, Beckham, or Delmon Young. Beckham seems like the best fit to lock up 2B for a few years. Young seems to be one most easily replaced, and the one least missed with my OF depth. Greinke is a proven Cy Young winner moving to a new league.

I've considered cutting Youkilis solely due to his age, but I think he has at least a couple more years in him. If he's gone, I'd go Beckham and Greinke, for sure.

The others on my roster worthy of consideration would be Wieters, McGehee, Adam Jones, Chris Young (OF), Adam Lind, Buchholz, Scherzer, Chacin, and Chris Sale.

Thoughts?

I think I would have to go with Greinke. Even though he will miss a couple starts, he is a Cy Young caliber pitcher.

I like Beckham, but I like Youks more. Plus 3B is weak.

Please help;

I'd consider them in the order you have them listed. You could use more pitching and you're likely not going to do much better than Greinke in the draft. Beckham should be solid at a relatively weak position. Young will be productive, but you have good depth in your OF already.

Keep Greinke in your remaining spot. Absolutely do not cut Youk.

Injury or not, Greinke has to be the guy.

Another vote for Greinke, even with the missed starts.

Another vote for Greinke. I do like Beckham also, but Greinke is the choice here.

So, the consensus so far is to keep Greinke. Would anybody then keep Beckham instead of Price?

Nah, regardless of need I just think Price is too much of a stud to give up.

Put it this way: if you were to trade Beckham or Price on opening day, who would fetch more? Not that this is the way to go about it necessarily but that sometimes helps me think through these tough calls.
