3rd pick in a keeper league

Postby khabibul35 » Mon Mar 12, 2012 10:19 pm

I'm taking over a team in a league that has a 3 years limit on keepers (standard 5x5). My keepers will be Kemp, Tulo, Felix Hernandez, Konerko, Victorino, Cuddyer, Kimbrel, Luebke (I know Luebke sucks as a keeper but my only other choices are Bonifacio and Ubaldo Jimenez).

The top guys available in this draft are Pujols, Cano, Carlos Gonzalez, Prince Fielder, Jose Reyes, Roy Halladay, Justin Verlander. #3 is tricky because I feel like Pujols, Fielder, Cano, and Cargo can go in almost any order and my team already has a 1B (Konernko), a 2B (Cuddyer), and 2 or 3 OF (Kemp, Victorino, Cuddyer). How would you rank these guys considering my needs?

Don't think need here! you get the best available player, period. Whoever you get will have great trade value if you need to trade. Remember, Cuddy qualifies OF also.

I rank as follows.
Albert
Cano
Carlos
Fielder

You don't have a CM or UT?
I like Cargo/Cano the most, but if they are gone then Pujols/Fielder.

3 OF, 1 MI, 2 Util (but no CI).

So, I guess the position issue isn't so big with 2 UTIL slots.

Throw back Leubke and keep Bonafacio since you use a MI.

This is the way I see it. And like he said, you can always make a deal later. Have to take the best player available.
