Need help deciding final 2012 keeper, WHIR

Postby GardnerRunsRampant » Fri Feb 24, 2012 12:37 pm

Points League (scoring details below). Can keep 8 players with no years conditions. Am I crazy for leaning towards leaving Wright off my keeper list in favor of David Price?

Keepers I'm positive about (with my projected points and hitter/pitcher ranking based on the system):

1) Prince Fielder (489, #5 among hitters)
2) Robinson Cano (483, #7)
3) Troy Tulowitski (461, #13)
4) Jacoby Ellsbury (442, #14)
5) Matt Kemp (440, #15)
6) Justin Upton (418, #19)
7) Jay Bruce (372, #44)

Potential Keepers:

-David Wright (361, #54)
-David Price (303, #30 among pitchers)
-Carl Crawford (362, #53)
-Brian McCann (334, #80; #4 among catchers)
-Shane Victorino (399, #28)
-Mat Latos (290, #38)

Definitely don't think it's crazy, as it's personal preference with all those bats you have already. However, you should do a little homework on what you think other people will be keeping. If it appears that some Price-like pitchers will find their way back into the draft, then I would hang onto the rarer commodity of Wright. If it looks like people are keeping all of the top of the line starters and your ace choices are slim, then Price would be a fine keeper.

Like I said, it's personal preference. If you can determine whether you want to keep Price versus if you need to keep Price, then that will help.

I think I would rather have Price as well. I don't see Wright holding up too well 2-3 years from now. Not that it really matters to you, that is one of the most stacked keeper lists I've ever seen. 8-o
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Thanks. I made a ton of trades last year taking advantage of owners needing multiple pieces for elite players. It cost me the championship (I finished 2nd), but it was probably worth it for future years. I actually even traded McCutchen for Price late last year (when another owner dropped Crawford) to help with pitching in the playoffs. Imagine this list with him on it!

Like was said, it really depends to me on what other 3B are being kept and what will be there to be drafted
