WHIR 100%: Keeper options input

Postby Haiglebomb » Sun Sep 09, 2012 11:53 am

Hello world of fantasy baseball experts, Haiglebomb here. Need your collective help on thinking through complicated keeper options for next year.

Stat categories:
Hitters: Runs (R), Singles (1B), Doubles (2B), Triples (3B), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Batting Average (AVG), On-base Percentage (OBP), Slugging Percentage (SLG)
Pitchers: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Strikeouts per Walk Ratio (K/BB), Strikeouts per Nine Innings (K/9), Relief Appearances (RAPP), Winning Percentage (WIN%), Quality Starts (QS)

Keeper rules:
Keep 8 total players, mix of 4 hitters, 3 pitchers and 1 player under 25 on April 1, 2013.

My best options (in order of best keepers to worst, asterisks are who I'm currently leaning towards):
Joey Bats*
Brandon Phillips*
Shin Soo Choo*
Mike Morse
Mike Bourn*
David Freese
Josh Willingham (I like him more than most)
Yadier Molina
Victor Martinez


Josh Rutledge
Wil Myers
Dylan Bundy*
Jurickson Profar
Salvador Perez

I appreciate any and all thoughts! WHIR 100%!

I agree with your pitchers; I like Choo, but I need to see where he ends up next year (Cleveland will try to trade him).

For the under 25, if you are looking just at 2013, I would not keep Dylan Bundy. 2014 +, I understand. Actually, I'd rather have Profar i both scenarios; for 2013, Id rather have Sal Perez or Wil Myers.

I'm not sure that I would keep Niese over a good bat. I would try and keep Wil Myers for sure.

not thrilled w Niese but not a big difference for the 3rd 1. Pretty sure I'd keep 1 of the Royals in the under 25
