Early keeper thoughts - WHIR

Postby Cream » Sun Sep 18, 2011 12:37 pm

Just wanted to get your thoughts on who should be my 8 keepers for next year - it is 12 team H2H. If you're on the fence about a few, please list them all as I only have to narrow it down to 12 players initially, with the final 8 being selected in Jan/Feb. We are also supposed to add another hitting spot next year, but it has not been determined if it will be OF/UTIL/C.

12 team keeper - H2H - 5x5 - Keep 8

C Molina (one of the bro's)
1B Trumbo
2B Cano
SS Hardy
3B Wright
CI ARam
MI M. Young
LF Braun
CF Kemp
RF Cruz
OF D. Jennings
UTIL Melky
BN A Soriano
BN Pagan

SP Hellickson
SP C. Lewis
SP Jimenez
SP W Rodriguez
SP Nolasco
RP Santos
RP Motte
RP Frank Franc
RP Peralta
RP Parnell

BN - Beachy, Chacin, Leubke, Karstens,
DL - Wainwright

Let me know what you think - Leave a link.

Thanks!

As long as Wainwright has zero setbacks between now and naming time, he'd probably get the final spot. You could certainly go a diff route with the final selection but with those impressive bats already I thought a 2nd SP would be the way to go

1) Cano
2) Braun
3) Kemp
4) Wright, 3B
5) Cruz
6) M Young
7) Hellickson
8) Wainwright (if he has no setbacks)
9) Jennings
10) Turmbo

I can see where you would take Jennings over another player, he would be one to think about. My concern with Trumbo is don't know what is going shake because Morales coming back and Kendrick still there so where is Trumbo going to go or what is going to happen.

Just a quick bump.. Who rounds out the 12 - M. Young? Aram? I like the thought of plugging Young in at MI a lot.

these would be my top 12:

1) Cano
2) Braun
3) Kemp
4) Wright, 3B
5) Cruz
6) M Young
7) Hellickson
8) Wainwright (if he has no setbacks)
9) ARam
10) Jennings
11) Turmbo
12) Melky

Would be nice to get ubaldo in there but not sure how unless he replaces trumbo. melky's production this year has been too good to overlook.


help on mine? need to decide before games start today:

Cream,

Please check out my post on keeping Lester vs. Kennedy and lmk your thoughts.

As for keepers (not quite in order of value):

1. Cano
2. Braun
3. Kemp
4. Cruz
5. Ramiez
6. Wright
7. Young
8. Jennings
9. Trumbo
10. Hardy
11. Wainwright
12. Beachy

As for the controversial exclusions:

1) I think Ubaldo had one good half-year. His velocity is down and he's been crappy for a season and a half. Adios.
2) Hellickson - His FIP is over 4 and he doesn't strike anyone out. Beachy's K-rate is obscene.
3) Melky Cabrera - In my mind, he is your potential 11th-best offensive keeper. One-good-year syndrome. I'd rather keep a pitcher.
4) Chacin - His walks were way too high this year.

Thanks for your help on mine. My list looks like this:

2B Cano
3B Wright
MI M. Young
LF Braun
CF Kemp
SP Hellickson
DL - Wainwright
RF Cruz
OF D. Jennings

I think Wainwright could be a steal next year...I listed 9 but as much as I love Cruz, I finally cut ties with him myself this year in my keeper league. Guy just can't stay on the field.
A-Rod is a little B*tch
