Our deadline is Friday. My team is pretty much out of it so I'm trying to upgrade my keepers for 2012. I'm asking for any thoughts or suggestions. I managed to get Hanley away from a very stubborn owner (viewtopic.php?t=436347
) and I'd like to get another player of similar talent for next season.
Now a lot of the owners in this league (about half) consider their top keepers to be sacred cows. As in they will not part with them for fair value or just flat out won't at all no matter what (about 4 of the teams are like that).
Some players I know for certain are untouchable...
Cano, Kemp, Tulo, Grandy, Bautista, Verlander, Halladay, King Felix, Posey, Hamilton, Lince, Pedroia
Basically I'm looking for any advice you kind folks are willing to offer me. Which players should I try to sell? Who should I try to target? I inherited this team midway through last season and it was a mess. I've come a long way but I long to be competitive in this league 2012! Of all the leagues I participate in, this team is the one I care about the most.
Also, who would you keep aside from the obvious ones (Hanley, Votto, Pablo, Utley, Harper). I'm leaning towards Jennings and Lawrie. Bourn is undervalued in this league for some reason so I know I could draft him with my 1st pick (8th round) if I wanted.
