Keepers due in a few Hours

Postby woodson_28 » Thu Mar 10, 2011 2:30 am

I can keep up to 8. Value increases by $5 for every year kept.

10 team, H2H league. 7x7 (w/ the standard 5x5 + OPS, Hits; K/9, QS). This league favors power hitters and sp.

Here are the players I am keeping:
1B: Pujols ($40)
2B: Pedroia (24)
SS: Tulo (29)
OF: N. Cruz (20)
OF: J. Heyward (11)

SP: Kershaw (15)

Total so far: $139 w/ $260 total to spend. (So $121 left for 17 spots).

Here are some of my "top" options (Note: I can only keep 2 more, and the price is listed that they will cost me THIS year).

Fielder (34) - Would have to start UTIL all year
A.Rod (36)
J. Upton (30)
D. Young (6) - Good value, but it's D. Young. I think I'd rather roll the dice on a $1 OF in a shallow 10 team league.

Hamels (17)
Hanson (19)
Marcum (6)
Price (11)

I leaning toward Price and Hamels at this point for 28, for a total of 167, giving me just over $90 for the draft. Thoughts?

In a league that favors power and SP, I'd make it a point to keep Price. In a 10 team league, there should be some good, young OF coming on this year (Stubbs, Rasmus, etc.). Perhaps you don't need a $20.00 Cruz? Uptons really pricy also, esp. when you consider you only have $260.00 budget.

I'm in a H2H league also. I loaded up on pitching, in my 3rd year, won year 1, finished 2nd by a close loss last year. I think in a H2H league, make sure you have staunch pitching, as you'll get a lot of 2 start pitching weeks.

Obviously I don't know who's available in your league, but both Price and Marcum are well above average pitchers, and they're pretty cheap for you.
