Pick My Final Keeper [WHIR]

Postby Swept Away » Mon Mar 05, 2012 12:11 pm

12-team, 5x5 roto league with salary auction and 4 keepers. We keep players at their auction salaries (they're $1 if FA pickups). After being a keeper for 3 seasons, a player's salary goes up $5/year after that, until the owner lets him go back to the draft. Keeper salaries come out of out $260 auction budget.

I just made a big offseason trade for Hanley and Jacoby. I have my first 3 keepers set. I'd like some advice on keeping #4.

I'm definitely keeping:
-Giancarlo Mike Stanton at $1
-Jacoby Ellsbury at $23
-Hanley Ramirez at $21 (going up to $26 next season)

Please pick 1 from this group:
-Alex Avila at $1 (we have to start 2 catchers in our league so I'm leaning towards him)
-Paul Konerko at $16
-Danny Espinosa at $1
-Neftali Feliz at $3 (going up to $8 next season)
-Mark Trumbo at $1
-Mike Moustakas at $1
-Domonic Brown at $1
-Bud Norris at $1
-Derek Holland at $1

Thanks. Leave a link and I'll help you out.

I like Avila too with the 2 catcher league issue. $1 is quite nice.

Keep Avila for $1. That is a monster value on your roster this year. I've seen him go for $10-12 so far in mock drafts. And I would keep him at below $10 for a long as you can.

Avila as well. I don't expect him to have the same numbers as last year but that is still a very nice value.

In a 2C league, I like Avila for $1. He will probably under-perform based on where he's currently going, but he'll definitely be worth far more than $1.

I see moose as more of a flyer, who definitely has more upside than Avila, but Avila is a surer bet especially at a weak catcher position. Moose is more of a gamble.
