Need to pick 4

Postby malibuspeedrace » Wed Sep 26, 2012 12:01 pm

I am in a 9 team ROTO league with standard scoring (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG / W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP)

Can only keep 4 players
No other rules or guidelines with this league (The draft was a 2 sport draft (NFL & MLB, so while I focused hard on baseball, others went football...and a handful of trades were made)

C- Yadier Molina
1B- Prince Fielder
2B- Jason Kipnis
3B- Chase Headley
SS- Ian Desmond
OF- Justin Upton
OF- Adam Jones
OF- Desmond Jennings
Util- Joey Votto
BN- Rickie Weeks
BN- Carlos González
BN- Jacoby Ellsbury
BN- Elvis Andrus
DL- Troy Tulowitzki

SP- Kris Medlen
SP- Jered Weaver
RP- Jonathan Papelbon
RP- John Axford
P- Chris Pérez
P- Tyler Clippard
P- Grant Balfour
BN- Clayton Kershaw

Just can't decide on which direction to go with the 4..
2 quality keeper SPs
2 quality keeper 1Bs
2 quality keeper SS (DL stint may have made this an easy decision)
and a couple legit OF options.

Thanks in advance.

Only keep 4, you can't afford to get too creative. I'd go:

Fielder, CarGo, Kershaw, Votto. You could easily sub in Tulo, J-Up, or Jones, but that's basically the pool you're picking from.

These 4. Tulo in the conversation, but I think I'd take these guys and run if it were me ;-D

Thanks guys..those 4 were certainly at the top of my list.

Kind of surprised Weaver didn't get into your "in the discussion group"
With Kershaws injured hip, is there any justification to swapping the 2 pitchers out, or forgo pitching all together & hit it early in the draft?

You kind of can't go wrong, right? I could see replacing Kershaw with Tulo though. Clayton has his own health concerns now and he's a pitcher (duh!). Tulo is just on a completely different level when speaking of short stops. I would feel much more comfortable attempting to replace someone like Kershaw throughout the draft rather than Tulo. There isn't a combination of SS options alive that can provide his type of production.

Fielder, Tulo, CarGo & Votto for me. You could sub in Kershaw for either Fielder or Tulo and I would be ok with that also. J-Up, Jones & Weaver are not quite on the same level as the top 5, IMO though.
