Help with 2 keepers. Auction, points league. WHIR

Postby footballisbetter.com » Mon Mar 12, 2012 9:54 am

I get to keep 3 players at the average between last years price, and CBS projected $ value for this year. We start with $260

I know I am keeping A Gonzalez for $29.

Here are my best options. Name, keeper price, (points scored last season)
M Montero, $11 (413)
J Montero, $6 (397)
A Gonzo, $29 (655) ;-D
D Wright, $27 (562)
D Jennings, $8 (541)
Hosmer, $7 (509)
Beachy, $8 (507)

I also have McCutchen who isn't keeper eligible for me. However I can trade him and his new owner would be able to keep him for $18. Whom below should I target for him? If I pull off a trade, this would be one of my 3 keepers.
Votto, $29 (648)
A. McCutcheon, $18 (572)
T. Tulowitzki, $33 (555)
R. Howard, $23 (546)
C. Kershaw, $27 (777)
T. Hanson. $17 (384)
S. Strasburg, $9 (70)

I say try to get Votto or Kershaw if you can. With the third keeper I would roll with Desmond Jennings.

I'd keep Jennings. See if you can get Strasburg, might be able to keep him for a few years till his \/alue catches up

Thanks all. I tried a couple trades, and ending up getting Strasberg.

So I know Strasberg and A Gonzalez will be 2 of my keepers.

Now I just have to decide who to keep for my 3rd spot. Either Hosmer or Jennings. But I have some time to think this over.

Thank you.

I thought it was a tossup between Hosmer and Jennings. Can you please explain? I appreciate it.

BTW, I don't have a CI slot, but if Hosmer is the choice I can play him at U.
