Which pitchers to keep?

Postby dark2025 » Wed Mar 21, 2012 7:17 pm

I've got 3 spots open for these pitchers:

Mat Latos (Cin)
Daniel Hudson (Ari)
Jeremy Hellickson (TB)
Jordan Zimmermann (Was)
Michael Pineda (NYY)
Anibal Sanchez (Mia)
Tommy Hanson (Atl)
Clayton Kershaw (LAD)

Obviously Kershaw's a no-brainer, but who should I reserve with my 2 other spots?

Thanks!!

Oh and the league is a 10 team H2H points league, ER=-2, K=1, BB=-1, H=-1, IP=3, W=10, L=-5

D Hudson
Latos

Zimmerman is there, but with wins 10 points, and ip 3 points, he would be my 3rd.

Hudson and Zimmermann. I am not touching Latos in that park and with Dusty as the manager. Latos might not be that bad and Dusty might not be the cause of all the pitcher problems but there is just too much to worry about. Plus I think Zimmermann is on the way up.

KInd of how I feel, but Latos does carry more value. If I had him I would move him. Hudson is a no brainer. I would also lean toward Zimmermann, but if you like Latos I can't fault for keeping him and letting JZ walk.

Thanks guys.

It just occurred to me that most of these guys are being drafted 100+ overall (I'm using ESPN). We're keeping 10 each, so pick 100 is about where the draft would happen. Now Hudson and Latos are being drafted at 97 and 101, respectively, Hellickson at 102, Pineda at 107, Hanson at 118, but Zimmermann is going at 122.9. I do love Zimmermann too, but I wonder if the best idea would be to keep two of the guys before him (right now I'm thinking Hudson and Latos) then draft him back with my first or second round picks? What do you think of this strategy?

If you think that you can get him back .... sure.

I really don't use, or worry about ADP myself.
If i want someone, i take him.
Also, ADP doesn't account for keeper, where youth gets a bump.
Here is MDC (450 drafts)

Latos 69
Hudson 85
Hanson 92
Pineda 101
Zimmerman 117
Hellickson 126
Sanchez 129
