Keeper: Posey, CJ Wilson, Kennedy, Moore...WHIR*

Postby StealingHome » Fri Mar 02, 2012 1:55 pm

Hi all!

11-team 6x6 roto league with OPS and Holds.

We are allowed to keep 8 players. There is no year limit. Below is part of my team. I’m thinking about keeping the 6 marked with an asterisk (*) below, but am having a problem deciding on the other 2. How do you feel about Posey vs. Zobrist vs. Ian Kennedy vs. CJ Wilson vs. Matt Moore?

Thanks! WHIR

He would be much better off keeping Moore than Young.

Well, a lot of people are picking Young over Moore. I understand it, especially in a re-draft league, but I look at it this way.

Young
300-10-70-70-5 (and that's without much regression. he might take a step back this year.) I mean, these are James Loney numbers.

Moore
3.50-1.25-15-190 (i just think there's more value here with the bats you are keeping. the SO are just too hard to ignore)

Maybe so, but to keep a 36 year old (who has showed down seasons in one of his most important cats) over a pitcher who might be top 10 for the next 10 years is purely felonious.
