Help, Tough Keeper Calls! Please! WHIR

Postby jdwilli09 » Wed Feb 29, 2012 6:38 am

Okay, it's a 12 team H2H standard 5X5 cat. league. We keep six, then start a snake draft from there. We have C,1b,2b,3b,ss,of,of,of,util along with 3SP, 2RP, 3 any pitcher, and 4 bench. 6 Keepers in any combo of hitters/pitchers. Here is my roster, Lincecum, Fielder, Longoria are no brainers, but you will see the next three are much tougher. I appreciate any feedback, especially detailed feedback with reasons why you think your ideas are the right idea. Thanks in advance, and if you need a little help just let me know. Thanks again.

1B Fielder Collmenter, Randy Wolf
2B Jemile Weeks RP: JJ Putz, Carlos Marmol
SS JJ Hardy
3B Longoria
OF,1B Michael Morse
OF Jay Bruce
OF Carl Crawford
OF,3B Alex Gordon

I've been thinking Bruce, Morse, and Gordon as I will get a little flexibility with Morse and Gordon having multi-position eligibility. I like some of my pitchers but I tend to do a good job of picking pitchers up in the draft. Beachy, and Hanson especially because of their high K rates. Once again, thank you to those who take time to respond. I actually would probably stand pat on this team given the opportunity, just making a few moves here and there through the season, but 6 is my limit. Good luck to everyone this year.

Bruce is a lock
Morse 5th spot
The 6th spot is up for grabs.
I know i will be alone here, but i take Beachy.
But i could see Gordon over Beachy.

With so few keepers I would not keep many arms at all unless that was your entire team and you have a stacked staff. But you don't and you have some good bats.

I say definitely Morse and Bruce, and then I would take a chance with Crawford. He has such great upside with what will essentially be your #6 pick. But if you don't want to deal with him coming off injury, I'd also consider Beachy but I don't think he's someone you need to keep. I dont' think Gordon is anything special at this point that you'd want/need to keep him.
