Help Pick 8 Keepers!!

Postby stlcards02 » Sat Dec 24, 2011 3:10 pm

Here's what I've got to work with, we keep 8 with no restrictions. It's a 20-team pts league.

Longoria
Wright
Holliday
Andrus
R.Weeks
Zobrist

Kershaw
Shields
E.Santana
Chacin

That leaves 8 spots for 10 players. Pitching is highly sought after, so I have that to look for in trade offers. Thoughts?

you'd have to give Shields and Zobrist for 1 better player then sub Santana for 1 of those at your final spot. So you'd have to consider Santana and the player you get as being better than Z & Shields; otherwise you just keep those 8

I guess it wasn't as hard as I thought. Like I said, pitching will be gobbled up quick, but there are always guys who emerge. Will be nice not to worry about my offense for the most part.

What do you guys think of this offer? I've had everyone and their mothers asking about Kershaw lol.

Give: Kershaw
Get: Hosmer, Pineda, Pedroia

It's an obvious overpay, but that would give me a glut of keepers and it's not 100% certain I could flip everyone. Top pitching is a premium, so I'd hate to give him up.

You already have Weeks and Zorilla. How many MI/UT spots can you start?

Is there draft pick trading so you could then find homes for at least 2 more guys? Nothing worse than doing a 3-1 then having to drop quality players back. the offer is fair but I'm not sure who your 8 would then be, does Z get dropped if you can't make more trades? You've got great keepers for a 20 teamer, if you can make another trade moving a couple of yours for 1 better 1? the Pedroia, Hosmer Pineda haul looks pretty good to me if you can get something for your extra keepers

Longoria
Wright
Holliday
Andrus
R.Weeks

Kershaw
Shields
E.Santana

Those are my 8 keepers from your original post. If I am looking to move some guys, I would move the guys who didn't make the list and Shields or Holliday.

No way would I trade Kershaw in a league that favors good SP. He is your Ace. Shields should regress to Santana's level- not bad pitchers, but not top 12 IMO.

You could always try to package a 3B + Holliday or Shields for a top level SP or early to mid 1st round player (maybe Kemp, Votto, or Adrian Gonzalez).

Ya, it's all normal positions with 3 OF and 2 util.

I kinda want to keep Santana in this league, which would give me a nice offense to start, and a 1-2-3 of Kershaw, Shields, Santana.

Thinking of offering something like this: ship Shields, Holliday, Zobrist or Chacin for Romero and Hanley. The owner was super down on Hanley and could use another keeper. Idk, this league has been tough to upgrade keepers in of bigger impact.

Try and offer Santana and Chacin for some draft picks. Or package Santana/Shields with one of your bats for an upgraded bat.
