Mixed League Keeper help WHIR

Postby Devil Doc » Mon Jan 30, 2012 11:23 am

This is only my 2nd year in fantasy baseball, and I've got a good corps of players to keep, just not sure about some of the guys. Below is my complete roster, but the guys I'm thinking about keeping are in bold. Any insight on my team would be greatly appreciated. WHIR.

I'm really torn about keeping Morse, and have thought about offering out Fielder in trade in fear that his numbers may drop due to playing in DET now, and that's not a very hitter friendly ball park.

H2H league, up to 6 keepers of any position.

Scoring: Batting Batting Average (AVG) Home Runs (HR)
Runs Scored (R) Runs Batted In (RBI)
Stolen Bases (SB) Walks (BB)

Pitching Earned Run Average (ERA) Strikeouts (K)
Walks plus Hits Per Innings Pitched (WHIP) Wins (W)
Saves (SV) Pitcher Team Win (PTW)

Keepers as of now:
Fielder
Stanton
Heyward
HanRam
B. Harper
M. Pineda

C Matt Wieters
1B Prince Fielder
2B Martin Prado
3B Justin Turner
SS Darwin Barney
2B/SS Erick Aybar
1B/3B Michael Morse
OF Ichiro Suzuki
OF Mike Stanton
OF Jason Heyward

DH Josh Willingham
UTIL Carlos Pena
UTIL Angel Pagan
Bench Eric Hosmer
Bench Bryce Harper
Bench Jason Kubel,
DL Hanley Ramirez

P Jonny Venters
P Randy Wolf
SP Roy Oswalt
SP Hiroki Kuroda
SP Brandon Beachy
SP Michael Pineda
SP Alexi Ogando
RP Craig Kimbrel
RP J.J. Putz
Bench Wandy Rodriguez
Bench Jeremy Hellickson
DL Jonathon Niese

With Hosmer waiting in the wings I would be tempted to see if you could trade Fielder + Heyward (or another of your borderline keepers) for an elite stud. I would likely keep Hosmer over Heyward anyways. Other than that it looks good.

Agreed. Put out some feelers and see what you can get for Fielder. You could really use a pitching upgrade, so going after Kershaw may not be a bad idea. Looks like a solid team overall with some real good young talent.

I agree. see what you can get for Fielder.
can you trade for better draft picks?
Hosmer is someone who would be good to keep.
but wouldn't it be better to trade for a better starting pitcher? someone on the elite level.
Pineda should be good in NY, but I don't think he is upper tier.
Hellickson I don't think is as good as he was last season, still good though.
just an idea.

help?

Can't trade for draft pick unfortunately, but talking to a few of the guys in my league, it sounds like I've got some interest in Fielder. Appreciate all the help guys!

No way can you justify keeping Harper with the other 6 keepers you have.

I agree with this and the list that was posted. Lose Pineda and Harper.

Assuming I can't move Fielder and another player in a package deal for an elite top 5 pitcher, do I spend my first 2-3 rounds on best pitcher available? I won't know my exact draft position until closer to the start of our draft, as its randomized every year.

Yes, I would keep Fielder, Morse, Stanton, Heyward, Hosmer, and Hanley then go SP heavy in the draft. I can't justify keeping Harper with your team.

Help me?
