Pick up Matt Moore, Shelby Miller, or Jacob Turner

Postby pjtroy34 » Fri Jul 15, 2011 1:52 pm

Which way do you lean? I'm wrestling internal demons on this one.
Our 12 team 25-player league allows us to keep 10 players, two round penalty from where they were drafted/kept the year before with FA being 18th rounders. You can keep a player up to 3 years.

Do you think the Rays will delay Moore enough next year where it would be a waste of a keeper slot (and even a bench spot this year) or enough to make Miller or Turner the better choices? I don't want to be left holding the bag when it is mid-July and he's toiling away in AAA while Miller and Turner are fixtures of the rotation.

The other side would be to hope these 3 don't get picked up this season and make it to the draft, but Pineda, Montero, and Ackley were all kept last year so this is a huge risk.

Sorry, would have done this, but I didn't know if it would be relevant.
C- Wieters
1 - Adrian
2 - Pedroia
3 - Zimmerman
S - Alexei
O - Holliday
O - Cruz (keeper)
O - Stanton (keeper)
U - Papi (potential keeper)
B - Hosmer (keeper)
B - Boesch
B - Lawrie (keeper)
B - Kubel --> though probably dropping for Bonifacio tonight

SP - Haren
SP - Carpenter
SP - Kuroda
SP - Liriano
S/R - Walden
RP - Storen (potential keeper)
RP - Venters
B - Wandy
B - Colby (potential keeper due to round)
B - Luebke (???)
B - Humber
B - Colon --> would drop for one of these guys
DL - Wainwright (keeper)

Thanks for the input. If my staff could pitch better I'd drop Humber as well and roll with both Moore and Miller.
