Last keeper; need help

Postby las_vegas_keith » Tue Mar 15, 2011 12:13 pm

I am in a 12-team mixed roto league that uses 9 pitchers, 14 hitters and two bench spots with a $260 salary cap. Each team can keep up to 9 players. I have two options for my final keeper:

J.A. Happ for $2


Joel Hanrahan $10

I know every league is different and in this one closers go for a higher price. I would suspect Hanrahan would go for low to mid teens depending when he is thrown out.

Here are the rest of me keepers:

1B: Prince Fielder $20
2B/3B: Martin Prado $1
2B: Rickie Weeks $5
SS: Hanley Ramirez $20
OF: Shin-Soo Choo $13

P: Felix Hernandez $25
P: Jon Lester $23
P: Chris Perez $10

Thanks for the help. Leave a link and I will comment on your question.

I'd go with Happ. Even if Hanrahan goes for more than $10 at auction, I don't trust him to hold the closer's job all season long.

Hanrahan for me. $10 closer > $2 mediocre SP

This is a toss-up for me. Hanrahan at $10 is good value, and Happ is a sleeper for sure...

but chances are good you can get Happ off the wire...So I would go with Hanrahan

Help with mine?
