Toughest Personal Keeper Decision Ever

Postby astav28 » Tue Oct 18, 2011 11:34 am

Keep 8, 5x5 Yahoo H2H:

Napoli
Fielder
Brandon Phillips
Youkilis
Ellsbury
Alex Gordon
Nelson Cruz
Miguel Cabrera
Jon Lester
Ian Kennedy
Madison Bumgarner
Drew Storen

Note: I have Buster Posey already kept as a minor leaguer which makes Napoli less attractive

How on earth are you able to keep Posey as a minor leaguer? :-?

in order
1.Miggy
2. Feilder
3.Ellsbury
4. Phillips
5. Cruz
6. Gordon
7. Lester
8. Youk/Kennedy/Bumgarner

3B base is weak and Youk even w/ the nagging injuries is still as close to elite there as you can get he would be my choice, but that's only cause I think it's easier to build a pitching staff in the draft than find elite caliber IF. Can't go wrong w/ any of those guys really though. Just remember where guys like Bumgarner and Kennedy were valued this time last year. If you do your research and attack your SP w/ quantity of upside arms it seems to be easier to find the next group of Kennedy,Romero's and Bumgarners than it is to find another elite worthy IF bat

I'd rather go with Bumgarner and his huge upside over Kennedy, who I think is at peak this past season.

i'd be ok with gordon over bumgarner, but with him losing his 3B eligibility he's not quite as valuable as he was last year. kennedy over bumgarner is pure insanity.

i'm with ensanimal on this one.
