Help with my last two keepers? WHIR

Postby WaCougMBS » Mon Jan 23, 2012 3:07 pm

Twelve-team H2H dynasty league - 26-man active roster, plus farm system where guys can be kept in "minors" as long as they're under 130 AB/50 IP. Need to keep two guys off the list at the bottom, unless you can make a case for more that instead of guys like Salvador Perez, Willingham, Reimold, etc. Thanks in advance, and WHIR as always!

Starting requirements are C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 2 UT, 10 P, 6 bench.

Batters
C - Salvador Perez
1B - Prince Fielder
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - Alex Rodriguez
SS - Asdrubal Cabrera
OF - Hunter Pence, Shin-Soo Choo, Ichiro Suzuki, Allen Craig, Josh Willingham, Nolan Reimold
UT - Brandon Belt, Paul Goldschmidt

Pitchers
SP - Justin Verlander, Cliff Lee, Michael Pineda, Johnny Cueto, Cory Luebke
RP - Brian Wilson, Brandon League, Ryan Madson, Tyler Clippard, Mike Adams

Farm
Jesus Montero - C, SEA
Kyle Gibson - RHP, MIN
Casey Crosby - SP, DET
Christian Friedrich - SP, COL
Phillippe Aumont - P, PHI
Carlos Triunfel - SS, SEA
Charlie Blackmon - OF, COL
Thomas Neal - OF, SF
Josh Sale - OF, TB
Jose Iglesias - SS, BOS

Two spots left for these 5 guys ...
Domonic Brown - OF, PHI
Juan Nicasio - SP, COL
Rubby De La Rosa - RP, LAD
Aaron Crow - P, KC
Tim Stauffer (SD - SP,RP)

How many available DL spots to you have? I ask because if you could stash Rubby his upside is enormous. Then again, he may be an under the radar pick in your draft if you want to risk tossing him back out.

I'd probably lean toward Dom Brown & Tim Stauffer.

You look better at OF than P, so I'd consider going with Stauffer and Crow myself.

I would go with Dom Brown and Aaron Crow. I don't think you can replacethier upside through the draft, but you probably can find a tim stauefer type.

For me it's Brown and Crow, only because of Rubby's health.

I agree here. Though Crow isn't a lock for the rotation, his upside is too high to ignore. Brown is the easiest choice IMO.

Completely agree with these two statements.

I'm going with Brown and De La Rosa. Brown is an easy choice for. If you can stash Rubby, I think he's got a lot of upside going forward.

I'd keep Brown for sure, that is a no brainer. It is between De La Rosa and Crow in my opinion and I would go with Crow by a hair.

please help
