Please help w/ last keeper

Postby Epiphany » Sun Mar 04, 2012 7:23 pm

I nee help in deciding my fourth keeper in a H2H points league hosted by CBS. The league "slightly" favors stud pitchers over hitters. An example, both Verlander & Kershaw both exceeded 1100 points. Top two hitters in the league (Ellsbury & Kemp) each compiled over 800 points.
We start 10 hitters (C, 1b, 2b, 3b, ss, 3 OF, DH, U) and 7 pitchers of any combo of sp or rp (most teams go w all sp b/c of two start pitchers usually score more than RP).
We can only keep players past the 10th round w/ -2 rounds off the previous years draft position. My first three keepers are no brainers: Longoria Rnd 14, Tommy "the gun" Hanson Rnd 16, and Matt Moore Rnd 24.
The candidates for my final keeper spot are: Shelby miller Rnd 23 (w/ -2 rounds I can keep him for the next 6 years), dexter fowler Rnd 22, or Neftali Feliz Rnd 12.

Fowler doesn't off much imo. Pretty near worthless. I would gamble on Feliz as at least he can return some decent value esp in your points format as a starter who k's a fair amount. A 12 round pick for him is fair value.

I am a sucker for Miller and love the idea of keeping him for 6 years. Less risky pick would be Felix but I think Miller can be an ace.

Yeah. None of those guys really jump off the page at me. I would rather keep the huge upside with MIller if you can afford to stash him.

Another vote for Miller. The other guys don't pop out as being great value picks. And with your league settings, Miller could pay dividends down the road.
