Help with Keepers Please - First time playing in 10+ years!

Postby uscsteve » Sat Mar 17, 2012 5:34 pm

I've been out of fantasy baseball for so long but really enjoy Fantasy Football. Anyways, I got pulled into a league but with no experience I'm very unsure on who I need to keep.

The league is a 10 team, mixed league, rotisserie scoring, keeper league. I can keep 22 OR 23 players active. Positions are:
C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, OF, OF, OF, OF, DH, U, (U - optional); I can keep 8 OR 9 pitchers active (all slots are P, not SP or RP).
Each teams budget is $255. Players when kept get $3 added to their contracts each year. I'm going to post the values of the players with what they would cost me (includes the $3 increase already). We have to keep between 5 and 8. I appreciate any help and advice!!!

Here's my roster:

Joe Mauer - $16
Billy Butler - $12
Robinson Cano - $20
Maicer Izturis - $9
Jose Reyes - $36
Kelly Johnson - $12
Mitch Moreland - $7
Bobby Abreu - $8
Jason Heyward - $14
Nick Swisher - $14
Chris Young - $12
Corey Hart - $9
Josh Hamilton - $23
Jason Kubel - $5
Emil Bonafacio - $5
(I get to keep Brett Lawrie and he won't count against my budget as he was a developmental player on my team (he keeps the status because he had 150 AB's)

Matt Cain - $23
Zach Greinke - $21
Jeremy Hellickson - $11
Ubaldo Jiminez - $13
Jair Jurrjens - $4
Derek Lowe - $5
Jonathan Papelbon - $13
JJ Putz - $9
C.C. Sabathia - $27
Clay Bucholz - $18
Chris Sale - $8
(Julio Teheran is my developmental keeper)

I was expecting you to suggest Cain since he is your signature!!! Curious to hear as many opinions as possible.....the only one on here I was 100% sure on was Cano.

Question on the keepers suggestions.....with the makeup of the other keepers you have pointed out it looks like average is going to be an area I'd be targeting. Is Chris Young going to be too much of a drain on that even though he'd bring some home runs and stolen bases??

Basically agree. I would let Hart walk though and keep Papelbon. I'm not down with players and knee surgeries.

mauer, butler, cano, and hamilton will help make up for young's average. i don't think you have much of a problem there.

I wouldn't keep Mauer but I also don't like keeping catchers and figure I can get something pretty decent at $5 or cheaper. I would be tempted to keep CC but I think you could get him back at a similar price.

Edited - Read the first line of keeping up to 23.
