Pitching/Keeper Question - WHIR!!

Postby baseballfan89 » Sun Mar 11, 2012 9:35 pm

Hey guys ive been asking about my keepers for a couple of days now and ive received great advice and like to thank everyone in advance. Tonight is my keeper deadline and I'm looking at some pitching to keep:

Right now my list of players from which i get to choose 5 is:

Pujols
Beltre
Zobrist
Lester
Beckett
Kennedy
Wilson

I have decided to go with Pujols, Beltre, Zobrist as 3 keepers because they are big bats and i cover most of my infield with them.

I have to choose 2 more keepers, in which im going to keep 2 starting pitchers. I have the option of acquiring Hamels, Greinke, Halladay (the price might be too much for halladay).

Which pitchers should i keep?? And is it really worth it to trade for guys like Hamels and Greinke? Or should i just keep 2 pitchers from my list and keep the draft picks. I would have to give up my 3rd or 4th round picks to get one of them.

I'd go with Lester/Kennedy. Beckett definitely not, Lester is in for sure, and Kennedy vs. CJ is close but I like Kennedy.

Thanks for the reply on my post. For you my gut says to keep Lester and CJ Wilson.. if the price for Grienke is reasonable I'd pull the trigger there as well.

Ditto. I would not pay much to upgrade to Greinke though. It does not buy you much of an upgrade so why pay a lot. If you want to trade up, look to get one of Halladay, Verlander or Kershaw if the price is right.
