Keeper dilemma

Postby Blueberries » Thu Feb 16, 2012 9:39 am

11 team roto league. 8 keepers.

I'm keeeping Fielder, Hamilton, Braun, Lester for sure.

Other options: BJ Upton, Utley, Josh Johnson, Sandoval, Sherzer, Ubaldo, Andrus

I'm leaning: Upton, Utley, Johnson and Sandoval.

It leaves me with only 2 SP before the draft, but what would you do?

I personally would keep Ubaldo over Johnson. Have read articles that he's close to throwing at full strength again, but I honestly don't think I could trust that enough to make him one of my keepers.

Andrus over Pablo, who scares me with his weight.

I'd keep Andrus over both Sandoval and Utley. Between those two I'd flip a coin - one is brittle and old and one is fat, so either way there's risk.

BJ Upton ;-D , Utley ;-D , Josh Johnson, Sandoval ;-D , Sherzer, Ubaldo, Andrus ;-D

This is the way I would go. I don't trust JJ to stay healthy and I think you will be able to find plenty of SP in the draft. I don't love Utley so I wouldn't be opposed to you keeping JJ instead but 2B will be harder to fill. I also like that your lineup will be almost done and you can concentrate on pitching in the draft.
