Keeper dilemma: Please help me decide!

Postby twistedude » Mon Aug 20, 2012 7:55 pm

LEAGUE FORMAT: 14 team yahoo ROTO keeper, we keep 5 at the cost of the round they were drafted in.

I have two keepers already set in stone - round values in brackets:

Trout (17)
Harper (16)

And now I must choose 3 from the following players:

Altuve (18)
Wainwright (10)
Cueto (11)
Moustakas (9)
Mauer (6)
Frieri (24)

Which three players would you keep from that list and why?

;-D

Altuve and Cueto simply due to the value of their respective rounds. As for the last pick, I go with Wainwright as you've got 3 hitters already, but I wouldn't fault you for going with Moose instead.

Altuve, Waino, and Cueto. Wainwright should truly be in Ace form next season and that's pretty good for a 10th round pick. Same for Cueto, he's really proven that he is consistent. Altuve is at a shallow position, so that makes him very attractive! The only thing that sucks is the team.

Thanks for grading my trade thread ;-D

Altuve is great value so he's a no brainer to me and your SP's are great value as well so I feel you have to keep those guys too. As another poster stated, since you already have 2 hitters, going with SP is the way to go. ;-D ;-D

But, if you wanted to take a chance with Moose (value to me is fair, not good nor bad) I'd send Cueto packing as much as I hate saying :-o . Wainwright to me is your ace.

Thanks for the help on mine. I think Cueto is a definite, and I'd keep Wainwright too. I might lean Moose over Altuve, but could understand you going the other way due to the round value.

Good luck!

Altuve is great value for the round...Same goes for Cueto as he has shown consistency and as other people pointed out...Wainwright seems to be getting back to form prior to surgery...I think you cannot go wrong with those three...Moose is tempting, but who knows, he could be another Gordon...Also heard that Wil Myers has been playing 3B in the minors.

help me?
