Which 6 players should I keep?!!? Thanks! WHIR

Postby TheGhost » Tue Oct 02, 2012 12:13 pm

I need help with who I should keep!!!!

So I play in a ten team, H2H, yahoo league that keeps 6 players.

You are allowed to keep:
2 players that you drafted between rounds 1-5
2 players that you drafted between rounds 6-10
2 players that you drafted between rounds 11-23

If you keep a player, you lose that spot plus one round in the draft. For instance, if you draft a player in round 3 and keep him next year, he is round 2 keeper next year and you lose your second round pick. If you keep two players from rounds 1 and 2 respectively, you lose both rounds as you can't go higher then 1. Same goes for a player who you drafted in (for example) round 12 and pick up a guy off of waivers who was drafted in round 12. If you keep both, you would lose rounds 10 and 11 in the draft. Another thing: If you pick up a player off of waivers that was drafted that year and you keep him the next year, you have to keep him at his drafted spot. If he is a free agent and was not drafted and you keep him, you lose your 23rd round pick (or 21, 22, if you keep 3 free agents next year from this years team).

An owner is not required to keep players from any round. For example, if an owner chose to keep 6 free agents. He would lose draft pick rounds 18-23.

The round in is listed in which I would need to use to keep the player. Free agents are kept at the last round. 100% WHIR

Here's my roster:

C: Willin Rosario (FA)
1B: Eric Hosmer (22nd rd.)
2B: Dan Uggla (4rd rd.)
3B: Evan Longoria (1st rd.)
SS: Starlin Castro (15th rd.)
OF: Mike Stanton (6th rd.)
OF: Jay Bruce (5th rd.)
OF: Michael Morse (19th rd.)
UTL: Bryce Harper (14th rd.)
UTL: Manny Machado (FA)
Bench: Jurickson Profar (FA)
Bench: Wil Myers (FA)

Pitchers: Cliff Lee (1st rd.), Yovanni Gallardo (3rd rd.), Adam Wainwright (2nd rd.), Hiroki Kuroda (15th rd.), Shaun Marcum (9th rd.), Trevor Bauer (17th rd.).

RP: Aroldis Chapman (FA), Rafael Betancourt (11th rd.), Joe Nathan (16th rd.), Ernesto Frieri (FA).

What six do I keep? THANKS! ...and WHIR

This is probably the way i would go. You are giving up some decent talent but I don't love the rounds they are going to cost you and I don't see them being much of a win for you. While I don't think you need to keep Machado and Profar, you should keep one and personally I would keep both as they will cost you very little to keep. Chapman, Harper and Castro are your no brain keepers. Sucks to lose Hosmer but I can't see how you can keep him unless you can some how keep more than 2 guys in that third tier.

Two guys jump out based on the round system you've got posted

- Starlin Castro, round 15
- Bryce Harper, round 14

The next few guys who scream value in my opinion are

- Aroldis Chapman, FA
- Mike Stanton, round 6
- Wilin Rosario, FA - although in a 10 team league, you could probably get him on the cheap next year.

For your final spot, I don't see a lot in terms of your pitchers, so I'd go for another bat. And really the question I have is what position will you be drafting next year and do you think Longoria is a top 10 pick? I don't think he is. That said, I don't see another clear stand out with your keeper rules. Maybe Michael Morse or Eric Hosmer. Longoria is still a safe bet though.

I hope this helps. If you wouldn't mind returning the favor...

It's tempting to corner the market on SS, but I'll take my chances in letting Profar walk. You only get to keep 6. Keep the best players for the upcoming season. I still believe in Hosmer and would not let him walk at that value.

I don't think he can keep Castro, Hosmer and Harper. Only 2 guys from the later rounds.
