Who should I keep?

Postby McDavitt05 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 10:00 pm

So i'm in a keeper league, 12 teams, head to head, and it has been decided that we can keep up to 6 players and I'm having a wicked hard time deciding who I should keep. Here's my team, what do you think?
C- Miguel Montero
1B- Adam LaRoche
2B- Neil Walker
3B- Aramis Ramirez
SS- Kyle Seager
OF- Michael Bourn
OF- Alex Gordon
OF- Austin Jackson
Util- Nelson Cruz
BN- Melky Cabrera
BN- David Ortiz

SP- RA Dickey
SP- James Shields
SP- Ryan Vogelsong
SP- Yu Darvish
SP- Jason Vargas
RP- Andrew Bailey
RP- Francisco Liriano
P- Jonathan Niese
BN- Joe Saunders
BN- Lucas Harrel
BN- Ben Sheets
BN- Derek Holland
BN- Tim Hudson

edit: I could also potentially add Victor Martinez and drop someone and keep him for next year if you think thats a good idea.
Right now I'm thinking: Ramirez, Bourn, Dickey, Shields, Darvish, and Vogelsong.
Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Vog is a for sure no go, the A Ram's and A Jacksons get drafted somewhere close to 72, you could easily keep less than 6 and do just as well drafting from the avail FA's and if there aren't any better then redraft the 2 OF you drop but I'll bet there is better

RA Dickey would be my 7th choice hard to keep him over these guys despite his phenomenal season.

Vogelson had a terrific first 2/3 of the year but he's 35 and not someone I'd want to hold over in the first 6 rounds. Dickey isn't ideal either but you'd think he can float those butterflies up there another year tho he probly won't approach 20 wins again. If you can keep "up to 6 players" I still think you'd do well to keep 5 and redraft someone who belongs in the top 70 rather than chose a 6th from this list

No love for Shields, who is very underrated.
Has a 3.41 xFIP this year, and last 3 years all under 3.60.

Vogelsong has been lucky, no thanks.
Dickey at 37 has way too much risk.

Cruz easily
A Gordon
Shields
ARam
Bourn
Darvish

ortiz (yes, he's old, but he's still very productive)
v. martinez (productive catchers don't grow on trees)
bourn
dickey (too good to ignore)
jackson
ramirez (not many productive 3bs out there)
