Keeper Suggestions needed

Postby DonnieBaseball78 » Sat Feb 11, 2012 10:54 am

Hey-
I'm in a 12 team, Head to Head keeper league. After this season we keep 10 players from here on out... It's 6x6 league, H, R, HR, RBI, SB, and OPS...W, SO, ERA, WHIP, BAA, S.

1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, 3 OF, U, 4 SP, 4 RP.

I need to keep 9 of the following players for the current season and have been going back and forth on a few and could use some advice. Since we will be keeping 10 players from this season on
I'm trying to find a good balance of youth vs current best players...

Eric Hosmer
Jemile Weeks
Danny Espinosa
Hanley Ramirez
Mike Moustakas
Ike Davis
Ichiro Suzuki
Drew Stubbs
Shin Soo Choo
Logan Morrison
Brandon Beachy
Justin Masterson
Ian Kennedy
Jordan Zimmerman

Appreciate the help. Feel free to elaborate on why you like certain players over others..

Eric Hosmer ;-D
Jemile Weeks
Danny Espinosa ;-D
Hanley Ramirez ;-D
Mike Moustakas ;-D
Ike Davis
Ichiro Suzuki
Drew Stubbs ;-D
Shin Soo Choo ;-D
Logan Morrison ;-D
Brandon Beachy ;-D
Justin Masterson
Ian Kennedy ;-D
Jordan Zimmerman ;-D

Last one was kind of tough. Hard to let Davis go but I think I would rather have the position eligibility in Espinosa.

Thanks MuadDib,

That's what it has come down to for me too. Keeping 1 out of Davis, Stubbs, or Espinosa. I only keep 9 this year and 10 thereafter.

Love the 25/25 potential of stubbs and espinosa (esp Espinosa w/ 2B position) but the k's, low average, low OBP, and streakiness concern me. On the other hand Ike is a bit unproven and hasn't had a full season under his belt yet, not to mention having my U position filled before drafting. I do like that they are moving the fences in at Citi field though.

Some things to consider going forward. Thanks for the help.

Not a Moustakis fan. He might be ok,but i think he's overrated.
I think Ichiro bounces back some.

These are my 9 for now. Hard to leave out Ike and Ichiro. Mous is overrated so don't worry about him.

Eric Hosmer
Danny Espinosa
Hanley Ramirez
Ike Davis
Drew Stubbs
Shin Soo Choo
Logan Morrison
Brandon Beachy
Ian Kennedy
Jordan Zimmerman

This would be my list. I was close on keeping Ichiro over Stubbs or Morrison, but since OPS is a category he gets cut from my list.
