Help Me Choose Last 2 Keepers - Due Tonite (WHIR)

Postby sigriffey » Wed Mar 09, 2011 7:41 pm

I need to give my 6 keepers tonight. I am definitely keeping Crawford, Longoria, Jimenez and McCutchen. Having trouble picking the last 2. Just consider them keepers for this year since we get new talent anyway.... Any thoughts?

I am in a 12-team H2H Keeper League and I will have the 12th and 13th picks in the draft. A lot of studs are finished their 3-year contracts and heading back into the draft (Pujols, Miggy, Hanley, Halladay, etc...)

We use these stats:
9 x 9 categories (R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, AVG -- IP, CG, W, L, ER, ERA, K, SV, WHIP


Pick 2 of:
Jeter
Ellsbury
Dunn
Roberts
Granderson
Stanton
Buchholz
Bumgarner
Soria
Scherzer

Pick 2 of:
Jeter - good, but enough decent SSs out there
Ellsbury - solid, but mainly for steals and you can draft a team of 5 steal guys and not be able to make up huge power numbers elsewhere.
Dunn - KEEP
Roberts - Just no
Granderson - I think he'll have a great year, but I prefer the two keepers I list
Stanton - KEEP
Buchholz - solid Ws, but unless it's a top 7 pitcher, don't keep a pitcher (in my books)
Bumgarner - I want him this year, but his numbers, while solid, are available in other pitchers
Soria - I never keep closers
Scherzer - Could be keeper worthy after this year, but still not entirely sold


Dunn and Stanton. Notes above.

What say you to the idea of keeping Jeter, throwing back Dunn, and drafting a Prince or Howard or the like in round 1 and then drafting an ace right after that with the 13th pick?
that way i'd be covered going into the draft at 3b, ss, 3 OF, and 1 SP

At this stage of his career, I don't want to keep Jeter. But then again, I've never been a Jeter fan.

My philosophy: load up on value and trade for balance or need.
