Who do I keep to repeat??? WHIR!!

Postby pre1322 » Sat Mar 10, 2012 12:31 pm

Ran the table to a championship last year with a couple shrewd trades and some savvy draft picks. Question is...who do I keep to repeat? 14 team H2H, KEEP 8, 6x6 w/ HLDs and BB the additional stats. Here's the team (only players I would consider keeping):

C Alex Avila
1B Prince Fielder
2B Robinson Cano
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
OF Curtis Granderson
OF Andrew McCutchen
UTIL Aramis Ramirez
UTIL

SP Cole Hamels
SP Matt Cain
RP
RP
P Madison Bumgarner
P Mat Latos
P Matt Garza
P

Initial thoughts are Prince, Cano, Zimmerman, Ellsy, Grandy, Cutch, Hamels, Cain...but Bumgarner is especially hard to put back into the draft. What say you?? Leave a link and I'll be sure to return the favour!!

Fielder, Cano, Zimmerman, Ellsbury, McCutchen, Granderson, and Hamels should be locks.

I think it's pretty much a coin flip between Cain and Bumgarner for the last spot.

Can you swing a deal with someone before you have to declare keepers, so you don't have to just let one of them go for nothing? Maybe trade Zimmerman+Cain for Longoria? Or Prince+Bumgarner for Miggy? Something along those lines...because if you are going to lose one of Cain/Bumgarner anyway, you might as well get some use out of them first.

This.

If you can't swing a trade then I keep Cain.

No trades until after keepers are locked. I already explored that avenue...
