Who do I keep going into '12?

Postby JJLinn » Wed Sep 21, 2011 4:33 am

With the season ending, I figured I'd ask for some advice. Standard 5x5 roto league, 12 teams. Our keeper rules are as follows:

12 ML players, hitters or pitchers
1 hitter and 1 pitcher who have played in the majors but are still eligible for ROY
3 Minor League players with no MLB experience

My 3 MiL players are: Jonathan Schoop (3B, BAL), Tyler Skaggs (SP, ARI), and Yu Darvish (SP, Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters)

I don't have a pitcher that qualifies, but I have three hitters (Jesus Montero, Jason Kipnis, and Anthony Rizzo). Here is my whole roster:

C: Matt Wieters (BAL)
C: Alex Avila (DET)
1B: Prince Fielder (MIL)
2B: Michael Cuddyer (MIN)
3B: Edwin Encarnacion (TOR)
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera (CLE)
2B/SS: Jason Kipnis (CLE)
1B/3B: Ty Wigginton (COL)
OF: Nick Markakis (BAL)
OF: Nolan Reimold (BAL)
OF: Corey Hart (MIL)
OF: Curtis Granderson (NYY)
OF: Aubrey Huff (SF)
OF: Jason Bourgeois (HOU)
UTIL: Jesus Montero (NYY)

BENCH: Gordon Beckham (CHW)
BENCH: Jose Tabata (PIT)
BENCH: Adam Dunn (CHW)
BENCH: Anthony Rizzo (SD)
BENCH: Nate Schierholtz (SF)
BENCH: Maicer Izturis (LAA)
DL: Chase Headley (SD)
DL: Michael Brantley (CLE)

SP: Jered Weaver (LAA)
SP: Ian Kennedy (ARI)
SP: Chris Carpenter (STL)
SP: Shaun Marcum (MIL)
SP: Zach Britton (BAL)
SP: Josh Collmenter (ARI)
RP: Francisco Cordero (CIN)
RP: Ryan Madson (PHI)
RP: Frank Francisco (TOR)
RP: Philip Humber (CHW)

BENCH: Tyler Clippard (WSH)
BENCH: Sergio Romo (SF)
BENCH: Mike Leake (CIN)
DL: Adam Wainwright (STL)

I'm definitely keeping these guys: Fielder, Granderson, Cabrera, Hart, Weaver, Kennedy, Marcum, Britton...so that leaves 4 spots open. What should I do?

JJ, I'd keep Avila, Wieters, Wainwright, and Madson in addition to the guys you mentioned. I'd also keep Montero. It would be huge to have 2 good catchers.

Can you check out my post re: Lester vs. Kennedy, please?
