Need keeper help! 12 team: H2H: 10 keepers

Postby Pokeyouindaeye » Sat Feb 18, 2012 1:31 pm

So it's that time of year again, I'm left wondering how to choose keepers this year. Sadly I think my roster's getting a little old, maybe I should trade for younger whippersnappers. I also feel that I just don't have that offensive punch...

C- Miguel Montero
1B- Mark Teixeira
2B- Howie Kendrick
3B- David Wright
SS- Troy Tulowitzki
OF- BJ Upton
OF- Adam Jones
OF- Corey Hart
Util- Pablo Sandoval
Util- Billy Butler
Bench- Dustin Ackley
Bench- Coco Crisp

SP- Jered Weaver
SP- Dan Haren
RP- Sergio Santos
RP- Ryan Madson
P- Neftali Feliz
P- Brandon League
P- Frank Francisco
Bench- Ricky Romero
Bench- Shawn Marcum
Bench- Jaime Garcia
Bench- Gavin Floyd
Bench- Ricky Nolasco
Bench- Johan Santana
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

I don't see anyone that is terribly old aside from maybe Tex ... and that's a stretch. I think you're fine, though if you can get an upgrade with a combination of two of your outfielders it might be a good move. Go with these:

Tex, Wright, Sandoval, Tulowitzki, Butler, BJ Upton, Jones, Weaver, Haren, Marcum

I think those nine are pretty sure-fire picks. the last spot comes down to montero, kendrick, and butler and you can make an argument for any of them. have montero ranked the highest so i'm gonna go with him. i'd be ok with kendrick too, but i don't really like using your second UTIL slot on Butler so i'd probably avoid him.

I would be ok with this. I may choose to let Adam Jones walk and keep Montero or Romero since you only need to start 3 OF. I like to leave my options open as it seems fairly easy to steal a nice OF option later.
