Keeper Help

Postby panjam » Sat Sep 24, 2011 10:23 am

Head-Head, 12 team, 8 keeper league. 2011 was brutal for my squad. Which 8 of the following would you keep??

C - Posey
1B - Hosmer
3B - Longoria
SS - Hanley
OF - Braun
OF - CarGo
OF - Trout
SP - Josh Johnson
SP - Strasburg
SP - Greinke
SP - Matt Moore

No brainers for me are: Braun, Longo, CarGo, Hanley, Greinke, Stras. Not sure about the final 2......

I also have 3 first round picks next year (3, 4 & 10). Better keeper - Hosmer, Trout or Moore??

Thanks.

Holy stocked youth!

I'd keep Stras, Moore, Posey, Hosmer, Longo, Braun, Cargo and Hanley.

Passing on JJohnson because his shoulder problems are worrisome for the future so no need to gamble. Also thinking you can pickup Trout with your first pick as most probably won't consider him ready to bust out next season. Leaving Greinke is tough but I simply think Stras + Moore upside is too much to pass on and pitchers are more readily available in the player pool than good hitters. Besides, you might land him at pick 3 or 4 too.

I have those three players too. I would keep Hosmer and Moore if I were you. The Micky Mantle comparisons for Trout are enticing however Hos has been playing well and Moore looked awesome in his last start. Trout's major league stats though he's young, aren;t really good. Another Angels prospect was awesome in his minor league system too, Brandon Wood, that didnt work out too well. I'm keeping Hos and Moore, and deciding between Trout and Bumgarner. Suggestions anyone?

Would rather keep 1 of Stras or Moore here and cannot throw Hosmer back.
