Need to trim from 12 to 9...

Postby gmkaye » Wed Feb 22, 2012 4:11 pm

I need to cut three players from this list of 12. The league is a 10-team, 6x6 head-to-head format. We use both BA and OPS for hitters and we add in ER for pitchers (negative stat)

Tulowitzki, Kemp, A. Gonzalez, Braun, Hamilton, Beltre, Zobrist, C. Santana, Jennings, Sabathia, Lester and Pineda.

A lot of owners don't value starting pitchers heavily (because we use ER), but overvalue closers.

I am leaning to cutting Pineda, Lester and Zobrist (tough cut).

I have back-to-back picks at 10 and 11.

Which three would you throw back in?

Lester and Pineda are easy cuts. Last spot is between jennings and zobrist. i think it's close but i'd probably keep the high/risk reward pick in jennings considering it's a keeper league.

Zobrist is a stud 2b you HAVE to keep him.
Pineda is easily cut.

How many OF do you start?

Since you start so many UTL I would keep more bats and cut Pineda and Lester. Sabathia (an innings eating ace has the best value in your format). Since SP is slightly deflated that's why you should keep all those bats.
