Who should I keep for Fantasy Baseball 2012? 12 man league?

Postby mcdablo » Tue Feb 28, 2012 7:12 pm

Hey all and thank you for checking out this post. So I have to declare my keepers for my fantasy baseball league in about a week and it's hard for me to decide who to take. I get to have three keepers. When you take a keeper, you lose the pick in the round that they are ranked by ESPN. Here is who I am considering:

Michael Morse: Great upside, great season last year. Since he was in the bigs, done nothing but hit HR and bat around .300. #78
Konerko: Getting old, but my best offensive threat last year. What a beast. #41
A-Rod: Last year he was terrible, but maybe a crazy rebound? But he's really injury ridden. But man that comeback would be sweet. #72
Mauer: Young, so great for keepers. Last year he was hurt and was terrible really, but supposedly he's real healthy this year. He will definitely hit for average, but who knows about his power. And good catchers are hard to find, especially in keepers. #132
Youkilis: Always a fan favorite. #59
Ryan Howard: I could always take him and put him on my IR spot #151
Matt Cain: Incredibly sturdy, great for QS but not for Wins #48
Strasburg: Coming off Tommy John, but he pitched last year at the end and should be healthy. In a keeper, the sky could be the limit on this guy. #96
Brett Lawrie: Young up and comer, but he's supposed to be a beast. #90.

Thanks for the help. Can't make up my mind here!

Definitely Strasburg and Lawrie at the picks where they are. For the third, I would go with Morse and hope he replicates much of his numbers from last year.
