I am in a Fantasy Baseball Keeper league with the following rules:
Roster Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, BN, DL, DL, DL, DL
Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Batting Average (AVG)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Pitching Appearances (APP), Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Strikeouts per Nine Innings (K/9)
We are allowed to keep 6 players and I have to chose from the following guys:
Carl Crawford, David Freese, Brett Lawrie, Victor Martinez, Pablo Sandoval, Mark Teixeira, Joey Votto
Zack Grienke, Jeremy Hellickson, Daniel Hudson, Matt Moore, Steven Strasburg, Julio Teheran, Vance Worley
With as deep rosters as this league has, it is difficult to find many good players on waivers during the season so keeping the right players is crucial. I am leaning toward keeping V. Mart, Tex, Votto, Strasburg, and have to decide who else is best for my other 2 keepers. Will Crawford bounce back to pre 2010 output? Am I better off keeping a young SP like Moore, Hellickson, or Worley over a proven vet like Grienke? Is Sandoval or Lawrie the way to go?
I have a little while before I need to turn in my keeper list but with fantasy football now done I am starting to think about which way to do this. Any thoughts will be appreciated. Thank You.
