Auction Keeper, pick 6? WHIR

Postby rjforlife » Sat Aug 20, 2011 5:09 pm

Year one is winding down and I am thinking about some possible upgrades at keeper, but I wanted to first see where I stood with my current group. Keep in mind we have 10 teams, H2H weekly, $260 budget and we can keep 0-6 players. Price goes up 20% each year and the minimum to keep a guy is $5. These prices reflect 2012 cost. FYI I made some deadline deals and am winning this league, which is why I have a lot of high profile players at lousy prices.

Hitters:

Hanley Ramirez-$53
Troy Tulowitzki- $49
Ryan Braun-$44
Ryan Howard-$35
David Wright-$34
Ian Kinsler-$20
Jacoby Ellsbury-$16
Chris Young-$12
Aramis Ramirez-$11

Neil Walker-$5
Miguel Montero- $5
Cameron Maybin-$5
Yunel Escobar-$5
Michael Cuddyer-$5


Pitchers:

Verlander- $22
Gio- $5
Chacin-$5
Wandy-$6
Morrow-$8
Bumgarner-$8
Beachy-$5
Bedard-$5

Kimbrel-$5
Santos-$5


As far as I see it, Ellsbury($16), Verlander($22), and Kimbrel($5) are the obvious ones, and then I just don't know for the other 3, if I even want 3 of them. What do you guys think? Leave a link I'm happy to help.
Goldy is King.

At their prices, I would definitely add Bumgarner and Beachy to your keepers.

I like Bumgarner and maybe add Neil Walker, Gio, and/or Beachy. That being said, if you are winning the league, get the title; flags fly forever.

Just don't cut these guys unless you have to.
