Which group of keeper is better? WHIR

Postby footballisbetter.com » Wed Mar 21, 2012 8:43 pm

This is a h2h points league. 12 teams and we start with $260. As of right now my keepers are:

A Gonzalez- $29
Strasberg- $9
Hosmer- $8

Another owner really wants A Gonzalez from me. I could probably get 2 of the following from him:
Lowrie- $10
Napoli- $11
Matt Moore- $7

Should I make a deal with him? If so, what group looks best as my 3 keepers?

I can also use 2 as "protected free agents", which means I can match the winning bid if I choose to keep them.

Right now, my 2 are D Wright and Beachey.

Wait is the question should you trade gonzo for 2 of his guys or which three are the best out of the six?

Dont give up gonzalez up for 2 of his players

If you want the best 3 man combo I would go gonzalez, Hosmer, and Lowrie.

I don't know about easily?
Lawrie sb and 3B give him a edge, but Hosmer can rake.

I'd keep A-Gone... but if you can trade Hosmer for Lawrie straight up I'd do it. As a 3B who looks to have 5-tool potential I'd take that over Hosmer - 1B are easier to find.

Help on mine? viewtopic.php?t=441863

Not at all easily. Hosmer has shown it longer at the MLB level as well. I think Lawrie is going to high with so little experience.

I think I would stick with what you have. Hosmer being $2 cheaper is what does it for me. You can always move Gonzalez after the auction for something of need.
