Keeper Help New to Baseball

Postby jvh4jvh4 » Tue Mar 06, 2012 1:10 pm

Been playing fantasy football for a long time, but I just finished my 1st year of baseball with mixed results - bounced in the 1st round of playoffs after capturing #2 seed. It is now time to pick my keepers.

I am in a 7x7 Roto league with 12 teams and Auction draft with $260 budget.

Hitting categories: Avg, Runs, HR, RBI, OBS, OPS, SB
Pitching Categories: ERA, K, WHIP, W, QS, K:BB, S

Roster: 1 C, 1 1B, 1 2B, 1 SS, 1 3B, 1 MI, 1 CI, 2 UT, 4 OF, 7 SP, 2 RP, 5 Bench, 2 IR

My Team:
Player Salary
Mark Trumbo 11
Lance Berkman 6
Mitch Moreland 10
Brandon Phillips 9
Mike Moustakas M
Ed Nunez fa
Chris Getz fa
Brian McCann 24
Travis Hafner 3
Matt Holliday 31
Jose Tabata 7
Jayson Werth 12
Carlos Beltran 5
Carlos Quentin 10
Denard Span 3
Tim Stauffer 2
Neftali Feliz 1
Brandon League fa
Huston Street 7
Mark Buerle fa
Gio Gonzalez 16
Zack Grienke 21
Roy Halladay 33
Shaun Marcum 15
Mike Minor m
Ted Lilly 12
Martin Perez m
Derek Jeter 16

My Sophmores are protected and can be kept for $3 each without counting as a keeper, so I will prob. keep both Moustakas and Minor
My minor leaguer, Perez, will stay in my minor league system.

I can keep 4 additional player. I must keep at least 1 pitcher and 1 hitter.

I think I will def. keep Brandon Phillips and Grienke. I am less certain on the other 2. I have Halladay at a good price, but I typ. don't spend on pitching. Berkman is great value, but I expect a decline. Holliday is about the right price, but might go higher in the draft if a lot of people keep hitters.

I have been offered Napoli at $25 and Zimmerman at $17 for Halladay, and I am enticed by the position scarcity there, but there is no value. He would also include Butler at $1 instead of Zimmerman.

What do you all think?

Berkman is at too good of a price not to keep even if he only hits 25 bombs this year. Plus I would keep Halladay who is priced ok at 33 dollars.

please help

I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on the Halladay for Napoli and Butler. Should get me an easy 40 HR with 55 HR potential at $26, allowing me to spend more money somewhere else.

As it stands right now, I would keep ...

Berkman $6 <-- monster with OPS & OBP settings. absolute steal.
Beltran $5 <-- Like the price. Phillips at $9 isn't bad either
Halladay $33
Grienke $21

With the trade, you would basically be trading Halladay for Zimmerman since Napoli shouldn't be kept at that cost. It's not terrible with the money that you would be saving, but I think that I would hold out for more or just keep the Doc/Greinke combo and feel really good about my pitching going into the draft. 100% focus on bats.

Napoli had one amazing, unsustainable second half. Don't pay top dollar for production that is unlikely to repeat. McCann is a better value than Napoli is. I don't mind the deal with Zimmerman at $17 which is a better value than Halladay at $33.

I would keep:
Greinke
Halladay/Zimmerman
Berkman
Beltran
