Who to keep? Pick 2 from A-Gon, Kemp, Holliday...

Postby MrToilet » Sat Mar 12, 2011 1:05 pm

I'm in a 10 team roto keeper league, traditional 5x5 + OPS/QS. We get to keep 4 players from last year's final roster, and I'm kind of waffling on who my final 2 keepers should be for this year.

I finished 2nd (by a point!) last year, so I have the 9th pick in this draft. Here's my starting roster:
C: Posey
1B: Pujols
2B: Phillips
3B: Longoria
SS: Furcal
OF: Kemp, Holliday, Rios
Util: Adrian Gonzalez

SP: Greinke, Ubaldo, Cliff Lee, Liriano, Ricky Romero
RP: Jenks, Capps, Bailey, Axford

Obviously Pujols and Longoria are solid keepers, but I'm struggling for my last two between A-Gon, Kemp and Holliday. I think Adrian Gonzalez is going to have a monster year, but he'd only be eligible as a UTIL on my roster; I think Kemp will have a bounceback year, but will he out-produce Holliday's reliable .300/30/100 seasons?

Any thoughts? We draft in 2 weeks.

Thanks!

I think I would go with Kemp and Holliday. They are studs and will put up great numbers this year. It also gives you more flexibility going into the draft.

Please help;

A-Gon and Kemp for me too. Holliday is safer than Kemp, of course, but I'll take the risk and the upside.

+1 on this. I wouldn't be too concerned with AGon's shoulder as he appears to be progressing ahead of schedule. Holliday consistently produces. I'd rather not take the risk on Kemp with my first 5 players.

I'd go with A-Gon and Holliday. I can see a case for Kemp over Holliday, but I'd take the more consistent player now.

Well said, consistency out of keepers. Both are very reliable injury wise though. I bet you could use AGON/Pujols as trade bait which could net you a player like Tulo, Hanley, CGon etc. you get the point.
