Do I pick up any of the young studs on WW for Keeper?

Postby louismm35 » Sun Jul 31, 2011 1:05 am

Currently in 6th place in my league, but this is the first year we are submitting for keepers. Not sure if I should throw any of my current players out to stash some young talent to have for years to come (obviously they must prove worthy of the hype). Here are some of the names available:

Strasburg
D Jennings
Bryce Harper
Jason Heyward

Current Roster:

C- Santana
1b- M Cabrera
2b- Ackley
ss- Tulo
3b- D Murphy
OF- Kemp
OF- Braun
uti- Lind
uti- Werth
Uti- Hart
B- K Johnson, Posey, ARod

SP- Karstens, J Johnson, Carpenter, B Norris, M Latos, Colon
RP- Street, Valverde, Putz, Madson, Marshall

I really like my offensive keepers. I picked up Ackley thinking of the keeper mindset. What I do have to think about is that I am only allowed to use 22 years worth of keepers. So if I use 3 each on Kemp and Tulo, I can only use 16 more. Say I want to keep Tulo after the third year, I must pay double (2 more years would actually cost me 4). Pretty hard to think about with the young guys that I listed above, as I could use up the 22 I have currently to lock up studs for longer periods of time. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, I would love to hear them. WHIR by the way. Thanks!

How are they all still available?

Add Heyward, drop Kelly Johnson
Add Strasburg, drop Marshall. I think Marmol re-solidifies the closer job in Chicago soon.

If you plan on keeping Posey, leave him on the roster. If not, that's another swap you can make. Consider Jennings for Werth or Hart (Werth has been awful). Consider adding Harper if your team is definitely out of it, though he probably won't be in the Majors until at least midway through 2012.

There are no years attached to anyone yet, as we choose the keepers for the first time at the end of the year.
