Early Keeper Help

Postby skmo2345 » Fri Sep 02, 2011 12:45 pm

12 Team ROTO, normal categories, 6 keepers

I'm struggling here. But it's a long time from keeper deadlines. I just wanted to compared the responses now and the responses closer to next season. WHIR and thank you!

Pick 6
C Russell Martin (NYY - C)
1B James Loney (LAD - 1B)
2B Neil Walker (Pit - 2B,3B)
3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
SS Emilio Bonifacio (Fla - 3B,SS,LF,CF,RF)
CI Casey Kotchman (TB - 1B)
MI Michael Cuddyer (Min - 1B,2B,3B,RF)
LF Matt Holliday (StL - LF)
CF Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - LF,CF)
RF Justin Upton (Ari - RF)
OF Desmond Jennings (TB - LF,CF)
OF Adam Jones (Bal - CF)
Utl Alfonso Soriano (ChC - LF)
BN Martin Prado (Atl - 2B,3B,LF)
BN David Murphy (Tex - LF,CF,RF)
BN Darwin Barney (ChC - 2B,SS)
BN Kyle Blanks (SD - 1B,LF)
DL Jimmy Rollins (Phi - SS)
DL Jason Kipnis (Cle - 2B)

SP David Price (TB - SP)
SP James Shields (TB - SP)
SP Ricky Romero (Tor - SP)
SP Ian Kennedy (Ari - SP)
RP Craig Kimbrel (Atl - RP)

P Edward Mujica (Fla - RP)
P Mike Adams (Tex - RP)

3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
LF Matt Holliday (StL - LF)
CF Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - LF,CF)
RF Justin Upton (Ari - RF)
SP David Price (TB - SP)
DL Tommy Hanson (Atl - SP)

Those are the 6 I would personally keep. But from now until your keeper deadline you'll want to keep a close eye on Hanson's injury. If he's not good to go I'd probably go with Romero or Jennings in his spot.

3B Evan Longoria (TB - 3B)
LF Matt Holliday (StL - LF)
CF Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - LF,CF)
RF Justin Upton (Ari - RF)
OF Desmond Jennings (TB - LF,CF)

and...I would easily not keep Hanson...you have plenty of SP who are just as good

tough choice between these pitchers....

SP David Price (TB - SP)
SP James Shields (TB - SP)
SP Ricky Romero (Tor - SP)
SP Ian Kennedy (Ari - SP)
BN Jordan Zimmermann (Was - SP)

But I would go with Price

Help with mine?

Thanks for the help on mine!

Yeah I am definitely along the same lines as the previous posts. Its gotta be:

Ellsbury
Holliday
Upton
Jennings
Longoria
Price

If you want, depending on how you think they will perform next season, you could plug Romero, Shelds or Hanson in for Price because Romero is clearly Toronto's ace and he is very good, while Hanson is basically the Braves ace (but watch the injuries, etc.)..Shields is tougher to predict since this was somewhat of a first or him. Also, if you don't think Jennings will be a top OF then you could grab one of those other pitchers and go with that instead, but I picked up Jennings early on and he has been awesome for me. Good luck!! ;-D

This one is right. I would suggest that you might consider moving Holliday and something for a big bat at 1B or a top 5 2B or SS. I know at times that easier said than done but I would consider that. I also would look strongly at trading Ellsbury while his value has peaked. I expect him to be viewed as a top 10ish pick next season so you may be able to get a Robinson Cano back in return and keep the other 3 OF's you currently have. Good luck making your choices.

This but keep Jennings over Hanson.
