Need 3 keeps from this list

Postby MadDog36 » Fri Sep 30, 2011 8:41 am

C-Avila
MI/CI/OF - Bonafacio (already keeping Bourn for speed)
1b/OF - Morse
OF Ben Revere
SS Hardy
SP Worley, Vogelsong, Cueto, Vazquez, T. Hudson
RP Farnsworth, Robertson, Bastardo, EOF (MRP are a dime-a-dozen)

Keeping:
1b Gonzalez
2b Kinsler
3b Beltre
SS Tulo
CI - Bautista (might lose 3b/CI eligibility next year - if so I'll have all my starting OF covered)
OF Cruz, Heyward, Bourn, Jennings (start 5)
For MI and CI - I can keep as my last 3 a choice of the above: Hardy, Bonafacio or Morse
My remaining pitching keepers are bleh from above as you can see..
SP Hamels, Lester
RP Axford

I have the above 12 locked in and 3 more slots....can't snag any FAs waited too late. What should I keep for my last 3: Morse solid CI potential (need one), MI Bonafacio or Hardy (nice balance here) C - Avila I don't think he'll repeat so i'll draft best on draft day next year. Help me defend my title with these keeps thanks.

Even though Avila had a ridiculous BABIP, I still like him as a keeper. Maybe not if you only had one slot, but since you need to choose 3. I would say definitely Avila and Morse, and then I would say it depends on how legit you think Hardy is. He's not model of consistency, but 30 HR is nothing to sneeze at and they seem committed to him. I love Bon (he saved my season when Hanley crapped out), but he has not done this for a long time. So I'd make him option #4 if you cool on one of those three.

mad dog,

heyward was terrible this season. don't keep him.

avila - production at catcher
morse - prodcution, period. and he can play ci/of/1b
hardy - 30 hr SS don't grow on trees
a pitcher - worley was very good and i bet the phillies don't re-sign oswalt for $16mil. but i can see the argument for him or tim hudson.

I think you go Morse, Hardy. Bonifacio. I know Bonifacio's a gamble, but this strategy gives you a ton of flexibility at MI/CI/OF/3B/SS/1B and you'd have 3 SS, one of the weaker positions in the game. Tons of trade options plus it shortens your bench since you're backed up all over the place. Then just grab a C in the draft as you said.

Please help w/ mine! Thanks! http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=437095
