Which 3 to keep?

Postby Demolition13 » Wed Feb 22, 2012 1:18 pm

It is a 15 team mixed league with a $260 cap. I can only keep 3. Who should I keep?
Cano $26
Kemp $33
Alex Gordon $5
Jay Bruce $9
Stubbs $9
Morse $10
Verlander $27

I am leaning towards Alex Gordon, Bruce and then either Morse or Cano. Please help!!

I'm keeping Bruce and Cano there for sure. After that I might take Kemp at $33 if you think it'll cost a lot more than that the get back equivalent top-1st talent in your auction. If $33 is what you think you'd have to spend to get him back then I'd go Gordon for $5.

agreed. it sucks to throw back gordon or morse at those prices, but depending on your league and how much draft inflation there is, i would assume kemp and cano would go for quite a bit more. i'd prefer to just hold onto the studs at very reasonable prices.

Bruce at that price is AUTOMATIC

Kemp
Bruce
Cano

As GF pointed out, it's painful to release Gordon and Morse at those costs, but the three above really puts you in a good spot.

;-D Agreed. Have to assume that Kemp will go for a higher price than that at auction.

1B is deep, I would pass on Morse who I have at $17, Cano is a $40 2B and a steal at $26. 2nd I would go Bruce, I have him valued at $26 with $17 worth of saved value. 3rd is Alex at $5 I have at $22, but he scares the shit out of me. He has one good year after 4 years of repeated hype and he didn't actually perform at all until age 27, but that is the magic age. I think Kemp may turn out to be the 3rd best keeper based on what he does throughout the season because he may be closer to the return on value v. what Alex does in 12'

Can you trade keepers in the off season? You may be able to find the best keeper from someone and offer Kemp and Alex and nab a $20+ value keeper in return.

Stubbs, Gordon and Morse.................just kidding! 8-o

Bruce at $9 is automatic.
Cano at $26, arguably the best fantasy infielder
Kemp at $33, does it all and will probably go for more based on last year's #'s.
