Keeper help, WHIR,LL

Postby KaPluie » Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:46 am

Here are my possible keepers. The way the league works, is you keep three guys (at least 1 hitter and 1 pitcher), and you give up a draft pick equivalent to where you picked him last year. For example, if I keep Votto, I give up my first round pick to do so.

I finished #1 last year, so I have the 12th (last) pick in the first round. It is a snake draft.

Here are my options:
Brett Lawrie - give up 21st round pick
Joey Votto - give up my 1st round pick
Johnny Cueto - give up 14th round pick
Alex Gordon - give up my 20th round pick
Elvis Andrus - give up my 6th round pick
Adam Wainwright - give up my 19th round pick
Cole Hamels - give up 4th round pick

I'm keeping Lawrie for sure.

since you have the 12th pick Id keep Votto just because there are only like 6 other players I'd rather have then him and I doubt that even if everyone threw back their 1st rounders from last year that you would get someone better after potentially 11 other picks.

then im going brett lawrie since at a 21st pick you are getting amazing value. He has been going in round 7-9 this year. I have ranked as my #81 guy this year.

and since you have to keep at least 1 pitcher i'd go for wainright cause he is also going in round 8-9 and for a 19th pick that is pretty good value. Now if you think that getting a star pitcher is going to be tough i'd go with hamels. but that will come down to draft day and whats available in your league.

Yep, Votto, Lawrie and Wainwright.

Hamels is spot on value wise.
Brett Lawrie - give up 21st round pick
Joey Votto - give up my 1st round pick
Johnny Cueto - give up 14th round pick
Alex Gordon - give up my 20th round pick
Elvis Andrus - give up my 6th round pick
Adam Wainwright - give up my 19th round pick
Cole Hamels - give up 4th round pick

This is a NO BRAINER:

Lawrie, Votto, Gordon, Wainwright

Well I can only keep 3, but I'm definitely leaning Votto Lawrie Wainwright... though its a little painful to let Gordon go.
