Pick 4... WHIR

Postby TrippySG » Tue Feb 28, 2012 1:24 pm

So I have got a few real good players, but need to figure out the best value for keeping. Keep 4, but only a maximum of 3 from offense or pitching. My pitcher is easier, only keeping one Ill probably stick with Kimbrel or Shields. But offensively, I am thinking obviously keep Miggy(1B/3B), then Kinsler since 2B is tough to find production from. Now from here it gets complicated: Hardy is a SS that just hit 30 HR, Morse could sit at 1B and I like the 30HR/.300 AVG, Stanton is a stud but OF has so many producers.

Which 4 would you pick and why?

H2H, 10 Team, 4Keepers, 5X5
C: Russel Martin
1B: Miguel Cabrera
2B: Ian Kinsler
3B: Ryan Zimmerman
SS: JJ Hardy
OF: Mike Morse
OF: Hunter Pence
OF: Mike Stanton
Util: Pablo Sandoval
Util: David Ortiz
BN: Victor Martinez
BN: Johnny Peralta

SP: Ubaldo Jiminez
SP: Wandy Rodriguez
SP: James Shields
SP: CJ Wilson
SP: Rick Porcello
SP: Jair Jurrjens
SP: Max Scherzer
SP: Josh Collmenter
SP: Jonathan Niese
RP: Jose Valverde

Miggy/Kinsler....No brainers

I'd say keep Stanton as the 3rd. He has 40 Hr potential. Overall you are just going to get better production out of him. Morse would be my 2nd option, but 1B is pretty deep, and he isn't in the top tier of 1B's.

As for your pitcher, id say keep Kimbrel. Besides getting 40+ saves, he struck out over 100 batters last year.

Your best 3 hitters-

1B: Miguel Cabrera
2B: Ian Kinsler
OF: Mike Stanton

Morse, Zimmerman, and Pablo are all a step down from these guys IMO.

Your pitcher-

SP: James Shields

He will regress, but is the best option of your SP. CJ Wilson isn't bad, but I like Shields more. Kimbrel is decent, but I'm not using 1 of my 4 keeper spots on a closer.

Miggy
Kinsler
Stanton

CJ

I prefer CJ over Shields. CJ put up good numbers in Texas and I expect them to improve or stay the same in LA. Shields worries me as he isn't consistent.

Help me?

I think I'm leaning towards Zimmerman over Kinsler. 2B is a lot deeper than 3B, with a bunch of deep sleeper players.

I've never been a fan of Kinsler. he still plays for Texas, but he does most of his damage at home.
11 home- .296/.405/.528/.933
11 away- .214/.302/.428/.730
career home- .309/.395/.526/.922
career away- .242/.315/.412/.727

if Zimmerman is healthy he can get back to where he was in 2010 or even 2009.

just something to think about.
help?
