Need to cut 2

Postby KanyeBest » Fri Mar 02, 2012 5:56 am

Full dynasty league - keep 23 players for an unlimited time. I need to cut my 25 down to 23. It's a 20 team H2H league with holds and OPS in addition to standard cats.

Travis Snider
Wil Myers
Hiroki Kuroda
Drew Pomeranz
Nick Masset
Rick Porcello
Danny Duffy

Masset would be an obvious cut, and I probably will end up cutting him, but currently he's my only source of holds, so that'll have to be addressed. Everyone else on the list has some upside. Snider is who I'm leaning now, but for some reason I feel like this might be the year he finally does something. Kuroda is old and pitching in a pretty terrible environment, is he going to be worth anything? Porcello, Pomeranz and Duffy seem too young/talented to cut outright.

Snider is a must-keep, love his potential. Kuroda, old, but he's still good, IMO. Porcello sometimes seems to have hit his ceiling but at times looks great and most people forget he's only 23 (seems like he's been around allot longer, don't it?)

I would cut Masset and Duffy.

Massett (holds guys come and go pretty easily) and Porcello (yeah he's young but he's not trending too positively)

This is the direction I'm leaning. Duffy/Pomeranz/Porcello might not outperform Kuroda in 2012 but they each have a lot of potential and Kuroda is old and pitching in NY. I don't see that ending well.

We can keep 23 of our 25 man rosters season-to-season with no inflation, forever, so youth has to factor in here, right?
