Need to decide today last keeper: Belt or K. Morales

Postby las_vegas_keith » Thu Mar 15, 2012 5:20 pm

I am in a 12-team mixed auction league. We keep up to 9 players with their salaries coming off the $260 total for the draft. We start 23 players and have two bench spots.

I can keep

Brandon Belt for $1

or

Kendry Morales for $10

My other keepers are:

C/1B: Buster Posey $10
1B: Prince Fielder $25
3B: Brett Lawrie $5
2B: Rickie Weeks $10
OF: Shin-Soo Choo $18
OF: Carlos Gonzalez $120
OF: Desmond Jennings $5
OF: Adam Jones $15

I am keeping all hitters this year as my pitching doesn't have any good value.

I like Belt for $1, you can get Morales back for around 10 anyways

Have to go with Belt as well. $1 are easy keeps IMO. There is very little risk and a ton or reward. Morales at $10 seems a little high or about right depending on the league. I know I wouldn't touch him unless he was under $5 but I am in the minority on that one.

$1 Belt is fantastic. With every-day ABs, I think Belt can really put together a nice campaign, especially since he'll be in the middle of the order somewhere. I'm hoping for about 20-25 HRs and 75 RBIs. The only thing he might kill you on is AVG, but we'll see. Anything above .250 is gravy.

Morales is easily the better player but I'd throw him back and try to get him again on a draft auction steal and keep Belt for 1.
