I need to cut down keepers by our deadline.

Postby gregory.duzinske » Sat Oct 15, 2011 3:49 am

Hey guys, I was on this site a number of years ago and Im back on it now. I always enjoy helping other managers, and Ive always gotten pretty decent advice on all matters. Here is the my question to all other managers/moderators out there, Im in a 6 player keeper league, and in the offseason we are allowed to keep 8 players, then cut down to 6 by the draft. We also have a minor league prospect draft and I have a few names on there who may make a dent in 2012. My main question is what is your take on the guys Im looking at to keep initially on my roster? I have so much young talent on my roster it has been hard deciding, my deadline is the 18th and I have a rough idea, but Im looking for other wisdom too thanks. Greg

Players Im interested in possibly keeping as my offseason 8...

2B Robinson Cano NYY
SS Jose Reyes NYM
1B Freddie Freeman ATL

I think it comes down to 2 of 3 of Ackley, Mous & Beachy and I wouldn't argue with Ump's 2 hitters; then the top 2 in your prospect list

Without knowing the hitting positions those would be mine. If it is just the standard infield spots, 3 OF's and a UTIL spot I can see adding Beachy. A big part of me wants to find a way to get Melky in there too. I might replace Mous with him because I don't think Melky was necessarily a fluke this year.

Edit: on second thought.. I think you can through Ackley and Mous back to get Melky and Beachy in there. But it depends on how high you are on prospects I guess.
