Pick my 5 keepers..WHIR

Postby drtodddds » Sun Feb 12, 2012 3:58 pm

In a 10 team, 5x5 roto league, 5 keepers. No keeper rules...just pick 5 then start the snake draft in inverse order of finish. I won the league last year so I have the 10th pick, 11th, etc.

Keeping Votto, Mig Cabrera, and Kemp.

Debating between the following for my last two spots.
Carlos Santana
Ian Kinsler
Astrubal Cabrera
Desmond Jennings
Michael Morse
Drew Stubbs
Dan Haren
Johnny Cueto
Craig Kimbrel

Just a note, pitching is usually available in the draft in this league, so I'm leaning toward offense, and I'm usually not one to keep a closer, but Kimbrel is one I'd consider.
Thanks!

I think its gotta be Santana and Kinsler. Maybe Jennings but these are above all the others.

Kinsler is an absolute. You could go in a bunch of different directions for the last one. I prefer Haren though.

Yeah, Kinsler definitely, then Santana or Haren. I'd personally go Haren, but I can understand not wanting to keep much pitching.

considering its a 10 team league and not 12, there should be more pitching available in the draft. I'd go Santana and Kinsler.

Even for a 10 team league, you have a sick set of keepers. Kinsler is a definite. I'd probably go with Santana as your 5th.

Couldn't blame you if you picked jennings but I think your better off getting one of the top catchers. You may even be able to pick jennings back up in the draft
