NEED 4 KEEPERS!

Postby smithmn » Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:12 am

Hey all. In a ten team, head-to-head league. I'm sitting in last place, and am starting to think about next year. It's the first year of our keeper league, we are keeping four this year, five next year, and then six the third year, before we reset.

C - Geovanny Soto
1B - Gaby Sanchez
2B - Dustin Ackley
3B - Ryan Zimmerman
SS - Jimmy Rollins
OF - Jacoby Ellsbury
OF - Mike Stanton
OF - Michael Morse
UT - David Ortiz

SP - Tim Lincecum
SP - Jon Lester
SP - Tommy Hanson
SP - Chris Carpenter
SP - Ryan Dempster
SP - Kyle Lohse
SP - Ricky Romero
SP - Trevor Cahill
SP - Bartolo Colon
SP - Derek Holland
RP - Fernando Salas
RP - Neftali Feliz

So, who do I keep? I have Lincecum for sure. I'm thinking Ellsbury for sure. Zimmerman has been slowed by injury but is a top knotch third baseman. Stanton has unlimited potential. Morse is still young and hitting the ball. Then I have very solid young pitching with Lester, Hanson and Romero.

What would you guys do?

If you cannot trade.
I hate keeping arms with 5 or fewer keepers unless you had a terrible offense and in that case I'd keep the top arms.

What I'd do is deal Lester+Rollins+Sanchez for a Tulo/Votto type of package if you can get it.

I agree with MadDog, I'd try to package and trade up for better keepers.

Ellsbury and Stanton are really the only guys on offense I'd consider keeping, if you only get 4. I'd try and move Morse, Zimmerman, etc. to a contending team that is desperate for extra bats, see what you can do.

In terms of pitching, I think I'd want Hanson more than Lester, so I'd have 3/4 same with the previous poster.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Thanks guy! I have been working on a Joey Votto trade for a couple weeks now, and this kid just won't budge. I am looking to get another surefire offensive keeper, because I will be at the top of our draft next year, and there will be ample pitching available.

Stanton and Lester will probably be pretty close in next year's rankings, but I'd go with the bat, Stanton.

Zimmerman, Ellsbury, Stanton, Lincecum

Help with mine?
