Complicated Keeper Question!(WHIR)

Postby kidsilk » Wed Mar 21, 2012 7:03 pm

Points league, H2H, 12 teams, stats favor pitchers somewhat since wins are worth 12 big points, 9 keepers but 6 are "regular" keepers and the rest are:


1 Class B keeper (0-300 IP or 0-1000 ABs)
1 Class A keeper (0-150 IP or 0-500 ABs)
1 Rookie keeper (0-50 IP or 0-130 ABs)

Which 9 should I pick?

C-Posey
1B-Gaby
2B-Kinsler
3B-ARod
SS-Yunel Escobar
LF-Braun
CF-Braun
RF-Heyward
U-Mauer
BN-Martin
BN-Trumbo
BN-Franceour
BN-Valencia

SP-Beavan
SP-Ubaldo
SP-Livan
SP-Morton
RP-Hanranhan
RP-Adams
RP-Sipp
RP-Harrison
BN-Masterson
BN-Gee
BN-Vargas
BN-Francis
BN-Broxton
BN-Allie
BN-Jarrod Parker
BN-Drew Pomeranz
BN-Martin Perez

Well, it looks like I will have to keep Parker as my rookie keeper, Pomeranz as my Class A keeper and Posey as Class B keeper.

Who should be my other 6? I was thinking:

Kinsler
ARod
Braun
Bourn
Heyward
Ubaldo

But, I am torn not to keep Hanranhan but my inherited team is obviously offensively much better and I will have to look for arms in the draft. Any opinions?

I like them all except for Ubaldo, who I just have a hard time trusting. Maybe Mauer? Who I also don't trust but u might be able to trade if he gets off to a healthy start.

Should I keep Trumbo as my Class A keeper over Pomeranz? And is Mauer a better option than Ubaldo even thought pitching is weighted a little more?

I prefer Ubaldo over Mauer in pitching heavy points league. I don't know about Pomeranz.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I would take both pitchers. Mauer and Trumbo have too many question marks add in that pitching is weighed more, I would rather take the risk on the guys that could help you win a title.

I think the list in your second post is right - I'm not sure how many pitchers are being kept in your league, but in my experience decent pitchers are more plentiful than decent hitters in the later rounds. I wouldn't keep a closer because that job is so unpredictable. So... I think it's a close call between Mauer and Ubaldo. They both have decent upside but Mauer is a bit riskier. Catchers are also much shallower, so he might be more tradable if he does well. I might roll with Mauer too, especially since Ubaldo has been kind of shaky so far in Spring Training (10:9 K:BB).

Nobody has more question marks then Jimenez, who has stunk for over a year.
Even the Indians are worried about his dip in velocity.
Trumbo at worst goes 20/70.
