Last keeper help?-WHIR

Postby frygator » Sun Mar 04, 2012 5:56 pm

Second year in league that started last year. 6x6 12 team Roto, and I won this league going away.

Allowed to keep four, but have five that are worthy. Cabrera, Kemp, & Bautista are the no-doubters IMO. The last spot is between Verlander and Fielder. I've been leaning towards Verlander for awhile, but I'm having 2nd thoughts. Help please?

Note: The loser for the last spot can be traded, and I've lined up a 1st rounder for either.

Prince w/out question. With M-Cab, Prince, Bautista, and Kemp as the foundation of your team, I don't see how you can lose. Pitching is soo deep, w/only 4 keepers I'd have a hard time justifying keeping 1 at all. You can turn around and use that 1st rounder for the best available pitcher if you want. Take a look at mine please?

If you can move Verlander and Prince for Tulo or Cano or Braun, do it. If not just keep Prince

If you cant move Prince and Verlander for a better keeper than you should keep Verlander. Even though pitching is deep you should still try to balance you team and Verlander is going to be one of the best pitchers again this year. You can find another top power guy but you won't be able to find anyone to match Verlander's overall contribution.

Bro attempt to get Tulo for Fielder/Verlander if not, then keep the 4 bats.

1b: Fielder
3b: M. Cabrera
OF: Bautista, Kemp

That is just sick to start a team with.

Thanks to everyone for the help.

Tulo owner isn't interested, Braun owner is interested/thinking about it, & I think I might be able to get Cano for just Verlander.

I currently don't have a 1st rounder because I used it to acquire Fielder during the season.
