I need one maybe 2 more keepers

Postby Padres Fan » Thu Mar 08, 2012 3:22 am

It's a ESPN 11 team league with 10 Keepers, Roto Scoring 6x6

Runs/HR/RBI/SB/AVG/OPS
QS/K's/WINS/ERA/WHIP/Saves+Holds

Here is the list of 9 I have so far (Though I am still not committed to Hellickson 100%)
Joe Mauer
Joey Votto
Giancarlo Stanton
Jose Bautista
Desmond Jennings
Mike Napoli
Jered Weaver
Felix Hernandez
Jeremy Hellickson

And here is the list of the rest that I need 1 player from (or 2 if a better option for Hellickson)
Neil Walker
Mark Reynolds
Asdrubal Cabrera
Emilio Bonafacio
Paul Goldschmidt
Ichiro Suzuki
Cameron Maybin
Dee Gordon
Drew Stubbs
Bryce Harper
Brandon Beachy
Wade Davis

To me, Drew Stubbs is worth a look. Upside (raised avg. & lower Ks) is almost a definite. Better lineup this year for reds. Could soon leadoff again. Working on the bunt...

Cabrera maybe also....

I'd keep Bryce. Well worth the gamble in a long term keeper league. Throw the rest back (Hellickson included) as its only an 11 team league. I feel you can probably draft better then what you would keep. 2c

I'd keep Beachy and Harper. Cabrera might help you more, but last year was an outlier in his production imo.

Cabrera for sure. He'll calm down a bit this year but still swat 16-18HR and steal 15 bases which is pretty good for a SS

keep in Mind as I stated this is a OPS league and Drew Stubbs with all his 20/20 glory can't seem to do much else to get above a .700 OPS, Cabrera with his breakout year still sat at a .760 range OPS and Mauer was over .800 OPS. Been working on a deal for Avila for Mauer and Strubbs though.

Do I really need 3 SP though?
