Help Select Keepers for 2012 Season WHIR

Postby Hammers » Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:25 pm

League has $150 cap.

Right now I am leaning towards the following keeper list: Gallardo, Cain, Pedroia, Granderson, Beltre, Youkilis, Morrison, Capuano, Saltalamacchia. My reasons are as followed:
- SP is more abundant in my league than Batters
- SS and 3B are very scarce, so keeping Beltre really helps
- I don't draft until the 4th round (currently working on some trades to get back into the 1st three rounds)

Pitchers
$27 - Dan Haren SP
$21 - Yovani Gallardo SP
$18 - Matt Cain SP
$13 - Tim Hudson SP
$6 - Edwin Jackson SP
$6 - Shawn Marcum SP
$4 - Roy Oswalt SP
$2 - Chris Capuano SP

Batters
$35 - Dustin Pedroia 2B
$25 - Curtis Granderson OF
$25 - Shane Victorino OF
$21 - Lance Berkman OF
$19 - Adrian Beltre 3B
$17 - Kevin Youkilis 1B/3B
$13 - Jeff Francoeur OF
$11 - Logan Morrison OF
$11 - Marco Scutaro SS
$10 - James Loney 1B
$8 - Lucas Duda OF
$5 - Peter Bourjos OF
$3 - Chipper Jones 3B
$1 - Jarrod Saltalamacchia C
$1 - Miguel Olivo C

Thanks in advance for your help and I'd be glad to answer any questions you might have.

Thanks for the replies so far, but I am more concerned about the bigtime players. who to keep out of that. Filling in the last few dollars isn't too difficult a decision. I'm mostly concerned with keeping Haren and Gallardo vs keeping only one of them and Beltre.

Just keep Gallardo and Beltre. That's for sure. Gallardo is an ace and Beltre is a top 5 or better 3B.

please help

Hootie - The $150 is just for Keepers going into the draft, after we submit our keepers (due tonight) the player salary doesn't mean anything.
