Keeper Help

Postby lgolas » Wed Mar 28, 2012 12:47 pm

I'm in a 10 team keeper league. Each owner must keep 4 players. You lose a draft pick for the player. These are the top players I'm considering keeping and what round I would lose to keep them.

Curtis Granderson 8th round
CC Sabathia 3rd
Eric Hosmer 5th
Michael Pineda 12th
Brett Lawrie 6th
Dustin Ackley 17th
Mike Moustakas 20th
Hanley ramirez 1st
Joey Votto 1st

I'm definitely keeping Granderson because of the value of the 8th round. After that I'm leaning towards Pineda, Lawrie and Hosmer. I think I will be able to get Votto back in the 1st round of the draft. We get to keep these players for as long as we want and the above value will stay the same. Which 4 should I chose?

I expect big things from Lawrie this year and he will be a stud. I would also look to see what the results are on Granderson's MRI today. I also love Votto, and have him in all my pools, but if you think you can get him in the 1st round again, then I would worry about him. Alot of people think Ackley is overrated but he did have a nice 1st game (I know only 1 game, but still)

Either Halnley or Votto essentially become a second round pick correct? So on that note I would take both of them.

Votto
Ramirez
Hosmer

Top 3

Joey Votto 1st - Top 5 player IMO. Young and improving. You need to keep talent as well as bargains. Votto has a lot of talent.
Curtis Granderson 8th - Excellent bargain.
Michael Pineda 12th - Good bargain.

Last Choice

CC Sabathia 3rd - Figure that he has to land in the top 30 to justify keeping. Won't likely live up to this, but if in a pitching heavy league he could be okay.
Eric Hosmer 5th - Has to finish in the top 50. Unlikely but he could break out.
Brett Lawrie 6th - Has to finish in the top 60. Unlikely but he could break out.

I would probably keep Lawrie as the last guy. Sabathia isn't likely to return enough for the 3rd round pick investment. Both Hosmer and Lawrie are gambles, not sure things. With Lawrie having a slightly lower keeper price he would be my choice.

You could go with Hanley Ramirez, but I'd much rather have another player in the 11-20 range. Unless you can use him as a 1st round pick and bump Votto to a 2nd round pick (which would let you keep Votto as a 2nd round pick for a long time).

We get to keep these players for as long as we want and the above value will stay the same.


If rebuilding, then I would keep BOTH Lawrie and Hosmer. In 2-3 years they could be insanely valuable at those rounds. Bump Pineda off the list.

Hanley is worth a 1st round, 2 years ago he was the top pick in many pools.
