Keepers

Postby wkpdpack » Sat Feb 11, 2012 9:23 pm

In my keeper league, keep 7 plus up to 5 minor leaguers, 5x5 roto scoring.

I plan to keep these 7:
Braun (it will kill me to have to sit him 50 games if suspended, but I think he'll still be a mid-round draft pick and I'll never get him back picking 9th out of 12)
Stanton
C. Santana
Pence
C. Lee
Sandoval
McCutchen

I'm trying to trade C. Young for a minor leaguer. Do you think I could get any of the following minor leaguers for C. Young?
Moustakas
P. Alvarez
Y. Alonso
D. Gordon
Rizzo
Ackley
Belt
Viciedo
D. Brown
B. Jackson
Trout
L. Martin

It is probably worth a shot but it is going to depend more on if the teams you want to trade with need another keeper. You aren't going to get Trout but Moustakas, Rizzo, Jackson or Belt could be decent return.

If you can find a team that's weak on back end keepers you can always offer him up and see what kind of return they're willing to give. I'd aim for Belt or Moustakas.

Pretty much this. I'll toss in my homer pick of Gordon too. ;-D

I would try for Jackson, Gordon, Moustakas, or maybe Alonso. It's really just a matter of finding a team who wants him and getting the best prospect that will be offered.

I think it is feasible to get any of those listed prospects for Chris Young. He is a decent OF. Might take a step forward. And a team who needs another decent keeper would probably part with any of those guys. Though I agree that Trout may be a stretch, unless you are able to push the "he has no starting gig this year, so good luck trying to get at bats".
