Picking last keeper

Postby Blaise28 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 2:36 pm

Points league, hitting slightly weighted over pitching, 4 keepers, 11 teams. Tulo, Kershaw, Kinsler are my top three. I can keep Cargo but am intrigued by Brett Lawrie's potential. I wish I had the room to hold onto Beachy, Pineda, Hellickson, or Minor but that is lot likely. ALSO - I pick last in every round of the draft so anyone I don't keep I get minimal opportunity to add later. Thx!

Cargo fo sho. Lawrie should be good, but the 4 you have are already studs.

Yeah Cargo makes that list for sure. If I am dropping anyone for Lawrie, it would be Kinsler, not Cargo or the others.

Unfortunately I have to agree and say Cargo is the keep here. Would hate to have to drop Lawrie though. Depending on who others have to drop, he may fall to you though.

Cargo, don't even think of keeping Lawrie, 'cause he ain't no 4th rounder.

Not this year, maybe, but '13, '14? That's kind of the point of keeper leagues. Lawrie has the ability to be a perennial second rounder.

That being said, Cargo already is excellent. I'm amazed he put up the stats he did while missing the time he did. If he stays healthy all year, watch out.

Keep CarGo and if you want Lawrie that bad you re-draft him a few rounds earlier than you might expect. If you let CarGo back into the player pool you can kiss him goodbye.
