Need help selecting 10 keepers for 18 team league (WHIR)

Postby ClevelandFanatic » Mon Sep 26, 2011 6:16 pm

Hello, I need some help selecting 10 keepers for my 18 team league. The keepers can be any position (i.e. 8 hitters, 2 pitcher) and they do not correlate to draft position (draft is based on standings). The stat categories are: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG and OPS; and W, SV, K, HLD, WHIP, ERA. Lots of flexibility with IF and two Util positions for hitters.

My definite keepers are pretty obvious: Teixeira, Youkilis, Ichiro, Braun, Holliday and most likely Billingsley and Wilson. It's the next three that I'm really struggling with. I'm not thrilled with any of my options at SP, but I want to maximize my value for my keepers. I can target Saves (Melancon/Nathan), Holds (Clippard/Robertson), SP (Oswalt/Ogando/Baker/Hughes), or a young bat (Weeks/Morrison/Belt). Who would you go with from my roster below? Thanks!

Hitters: Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Mark Teixeira, Jemile Weeks, Kevin Youkilis, Omar Infante, Erick Aybar, Ichiro Suzuki, Ryan Braun, Matt Holliday, Logan Morrison, David Murphy, Jesus Guzman, Brandon Belt, Kyle Blanks

Pitchers: Roy Oswalt, Chad Billingsley, Alexi Ogando, Scott Baker, Phil Hughes, Bruce Chen, Rick Porcello, Randy Wells, Brian Wilson, Joe Nathan, Mark Melancon, Tyler Clippard, David Robertson, Rafael Soriano

I think I'd pass on Oswalt even tho he'd fit on your roster quite well. LoMo, Weeks and Belt or Guzman

ClevelandFanatic,

I hope you are not an Indians fan. That Ubaldo trade was putrid. Please check out my post on keeping Lester vs. Kennedy and let me know who you'd keep. I'm not keeping Michael Young.

As for your team,

Billingsley is bad in ERA and WHIP and his Ks are way down. He is not a keeper.

You mentioned 6 who I agree with: Teixeira, Youkilis, Ichiro, Braun, Holliday, Wilson.

I think Jemile Weeks is a must since he had a good rookie campaign and plays 2b.

That leaves 3 guys left.

Since this is a league in which holds are targeted, I'd absolutely keep Robertson and Clippard. They were #1 and #2 in holds overall, and both have excellent K-rates and low ERAs. Those are absolute no-brainers in a league that counts holds.

The last spot is a toss-up. I've never been keen on Oswalt, so I might go with Morrison.

Putting it all together:

1. Texeira
2. Youk
3. Braun
4. Holliday
5. Ichiro
6. J. Weeks
7. B. Wilson
8. Clippard
9. Robertson
10. Toss-up (maybe Morrison)
