Pick 5...WHIR

Postby Baldrick » Wed Feb 29, 2012 7:09 pm

5x5 standard cats, 10 team league (used to be 12).

Need to pick 5 keepers. Roster is as follows:

Ca: Miguel Montero
1B: Ryan Howard
2B: Danny Espinosa
SS: Elvis Andrus
3B: Mark Reynolds
OF: Curtis Granderson
OF: Nick Markakis
OF: Alfonso Soriano
UT: Jason Bay
BN: Brandon Phillips
BN: Chipper Jones
BN: James Loney
BN: Pedro Alvarez (such a let down as he was a keeper last season)
BN: Ruben Tejada

SP: Roy Halladay
SP: Jered Weaver
SP: Tommy Hanson
RP: Heath Bell
RP: Brian Wilson
RP: Jason Motte
P: Ricky Romero
P: Gio Gonzalez
P: Corey Luebke
BN: Brandon McCarthy
BN: Josh Collmenter
BN: Joel Peralta
BN: Ivan Nova

My short list...

1. Halladay
2. Weaver
3. Granderson

Really unsure of 4 and 5. Do I continue to stick with Hanson again? Do I keep one of my closers? What of Howard and his rebuilt Achilles? Seems each year I end up one with lemon. Two years ago it was BJ Upton, last season it was Alvarez...would really love to avoid that this season.

Perhaps I just load up with pitchers and add Romero and either Gonzalez/Leubke/Collmenter as the the 4/5 picks?

With only 10 teams this season I think this really opens up the playing field. This is the 4 year of the league. I won the first two seasons and finished second in the third.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Have to get the picks in by 11:59PM PST (2:59am EST) tonight. I thought the deadline was a Sunday, but it was changed.

Without knowing if this is a redraft or auction league, it's not so cut and dry, in my opinion. However, Phillips and Andrus make the most sense, based on position scarcity alone.

It's a 5 man keeper league (forgot to mentioned it is H2H). Only difference in the league this year as opposed to the first three seasons of it is that there are only 10 teams this season, which might make it a more open field.

With my team being stacked in season one I was actually told to drop Sabathia & Braun for other players going into season two. I dominated in every batting category that season and then traded for pitching, which helped to secure the championship. Last season I just ran into a hot team when my team had cooled down.

Appreciate the consensus you all have given me. Going with Andrus & Phillips to round out my five as suggested.
