Need keeper advice please...

Postby TheGhost » Thu Aug 04, 2011 9:21 pm

So I play in a ten team, H2H, yahoo league that keeps 6 players. We keep two players drafted in rounds 1-5, two drafted in rounds 6-10, and two drafted in rounds 11-23. We also lose a round (i.e. If James Shields was drafted in round 10, you have to keep him for a 9th round pick).

Here's my roster:

C: Matt Wieters (12th rd.)
1B: Lance Berkman (FA)
2B: Dan Uggla (3rd rd.)
3B: Kevin Youkilis (3rd rd.)
SS: Elvis Andrus (9th rd.)
OF: Mike Stanton (8th rd.)
OF: Jay Bruce (7th rd.)
OF: Michael Morse (22nd rd.)
UTL: Jason Heyward (5th rd.)
UTL: Eric Hosmer (FA)

BN:Starlin Castro (17th)
DL: Carlos Gonzalez (1st rd.)

Pitchers: Roy Halladay (2nd rd.), Yovanni Gallardo (6th rd.), Jeremy Hellickson (15th rd), Daniel Hudson (13th rd.), Michael Pineda (22nd rd.), Matt Garza (19th rd.), Trevor Cahill (14th rd.), Shaun Marcum (11th rd.), Derek Holland (FA)

RP: Joakim Soria (9th rd.), Fernando Salas (FA), Andrew Bailey (15th rd.)

DL: Roy Oswalt (10th rd.)

My initial thoughts are that I would keep: Starlin Castro, Michael Pineda, Eric Hosmer, Jay Bruce, Mike Stanton, and Jeremy Hellickson.

I feel all of these guys have great keeper value and I would get the majority of my draft back. Thoughts? Advice?

Also, Bryce Harper and Mike Trout are both free agents... should I not keep one of the guys above and pick up one of these super prospects? If so, which one? I could essentially have them for free for the rest of their careers. Only would want one though. THANK YOU!!!! WHIR!

I agree about Hellickson. And Morse has been consistently productive all year. He would be a steal in the 22nd round but I only get to keep six. Who would be the 6 you keep? Thanks. ;-D
