Who to Keep!!!!!

Postby jvibe5000 » Mon Mar 05, 2012 8:49 pm

I am joining a new keeper league.

Its 5x5, mixed, 10 team Keeper we keep 2

So since I am new I get to pick any of the remaining guys.

So far I have picked Matt Kemp!

The others off the board are as follows:

M. Cabrera
A. Gonzo
A. Pujols
C. Kershaw
T. Tulo
J. Votto
R. Braun
C. Fielder
R. Cano
C. Granderson
C. Gonzo
D. Pedroia
E. Longoria
J. Reyes
J. Upton
R. Halladay
J. Bautista
J. Ellsbury

So who is my other pick?
I was thinking
H. Ram
I. Kinsler
M. Tex

Any suggestions????
Thanks

Since there are 19 guys off of the board (including your keeper in Kemp), does that mean you have the 1st overall pick in the draft?

If so, I would keep Kinsler and draft either Stanton (my preference) or McCutchen.

If you have a later pick (for some reason), I would keep Stanton or McCutchen ahead of Kinsler. Both Stanton and McCutchen are significantly younger than the three players you listed. Both are late 2nd/early 3rd round picks and haven't peaked just yet.

I agree with this. Kinsler and HanRam have too many injury concerns and I would rather get a future stud with this pick.

I go with Han-Ram here but its razor thin with Kinsler. I am betting on Han-Ram bouncing back and would like his potential .300+ more than having to worry about Kinsler batting .255. It's nitpicking though and you really can't go wrong.

Another consideration is that HanRam will likely be a 3B next season where the top talent is better than SS so he might not be a useful keeper long term. Kinsler is a possibility, but 2B has some decent fall back options without the health concerns others have mentioned. Stanton & McCutchen are nice long term, but haven't cemented elite keeper status yet. I would probably pick Verlander as the second keeper.

As was pointed out, you should have btb picks coming up, so take best 2 guys. Hard to argue with Kinler an then place serious consideration towards Stanton and McCutch. I love HanRam, but I think they are all safer picks.
