Who would you keep?

Postby chargerss24 » Thu Oct 04, 2012 8:36 pm

Very early, but who would you keep, or who would you drop/trade in the offseason? Can keep anyone in my active lineup, but must be rid of our bench before the draft/auction. It's a 12-team roto (standard stat + OBP/Holds). Minors are safe to keep, so long as they are in their minor slot.

C - J. Lucroy, W. Rosario
1B - Y. Alonso :-o
2B - D. Pedroia
SS - S. Castro
3B - E. Longoria
MI - H. Ramirez
CI - E. Hosmer
OF - J. Upton, C. Gonzalez :-? , J. Heyward
U - J. Bruce, D. Jennings, B. Lawrie

SP - B. Anderson, C. Hamels, D. Price, J. Zimmerman, M. Moore
RP - J. McGee, S. Doolittle, J. Nathan, A. Chapman

Bench - B. Belt, D. Brown, Z. Cozart, E. Frieri, M. Boggs, J. Grilli

Minors - W. Myers, Z. Wheeler

I'm obviously weak at the 1B/Corner position and I'm toying the idea about trading Cargo, he's starting to worry me for some reason. I will also be moving Nathan and Chapman as pay very little for my saves. Any input would be great and WHIR as always! ;-D

I would be fine dropping any players off your bench and all of your RP except for Nathan and Chapman. I would keep CarGo and try and move Jennings/Bruce/Alonso for a 1B. Saying that i think you will be fine next year as both Hosmer and Lawrie should get better than they were this year.

I would also rather package some of your other OF and keep Cargo.

Hosmer should bounce back and at least give you some production from there.

Bench gone. McGee could be a sneaky keep if he doesn't cost you anything. If Rodney doesn't repeat (does anyone think he will?) I could see McGee getting some cheap saves.

I agree, i would keep Cargo and try to package someone else for a good 1B I would think Bruce and Chapman would do nicely

Ooops! I don't have a spare Jay Bruce to trade. :-B I updated my roster with Jason Heyward. So if it matters...

Thanks for the responses so far! ;-D

What are the thoughts on Paul Goldschmidt? I was offered him for Jay Bruce straight up. Any thinking that he's a fringe top 10 1B?

Fringe top 10 is about right. Not a big fan and would rather have Bruce.

Instead of posting a new thread, I'm digging up this one that has my team listed already without any changes thus far. I'm in dire need of a 1B and may have a possible trade worked out. Jay Bruce for Prince Fielder. No brainer right? Or should I work up another package for Fielder?

WHIR as always! ;-D

No brainer. Bruce is nice and all but not in the same tier as Fielder. Plus if you are desperate need of a 1B then it makes it that much easier.
