Honestly with that team I think you have to drop Trout. I know that is unheard of in a keeper league but I just dont think he will give you a ton of production this season.

That's really tough. Trout and De Aza are your only real options. I don't think it's fair to assume that Trout won't give you ANY real production this year as he has only played in 9 games. I guess in a keeper league I'm dropping De Aza? Definitely not sure about that though.

I need some more help here..... I can't see myself dropping any of these guys! Maybe Mike Minor? De Aza has just been money and too darn consistent, and Trout has too much upside!

Help!

I get 4 keepers. This year was 2 batters and 2 pitchers. I have 3 batting keepers cause I traded. The comish for next year is thinking about doing 2 batting keepers 2 pitching keepers and one wild card keeper. Pick whoever. Whyyy?? DOes this matter?

And Aviles has the 2nd most points on my team and De Aza has the 3rd most pts on my team. Not any easy decision......

Cause if you could keep more I would say keep Minor but since you don't it wouldn't be that big of a deal if you lost a SP like Minor.

Drop one of your young arms like Minor or Parker. I doubt either one has the impact on your team that De Aza and Aviles have.

If you only keep 4 (maybe 5), I wouldn't worry about dropping either one of those 2. Even Trout as well. There's no way you'd keep Trout over Votto, Kemp, or Upton anyway. So even if you get the "wild card" keeper, you have your three hitters already.
