Who to keep, who to move?

Postby dominodoug » Sun Oct 07, 2012 11:47 pm

H2H Points League with 10 keepers. I'm looking to keep around 5 on each side and possibly package some others for an upgrade in other departments. Point accruals are all over the board. IP, ER, SV, HOLD, QS, 1B - HR, SB, CS (plus lots more). All categories factor in, negative and positive.

For a quick example the top 5 scoring batters were:
Miguel Cabrera
Braun
Trout
Cano
McCutchen

Top 5 scoring pitchers:
Dickey
Verlander
Price
Kershaw
F. Hernandez

So who do I keep and who do I move?

My team consists of -

Pitchers:
Halladay
Garza
Dickey
Niese
C.J. Wilson
McDonald
Jim Johnson

Hitters:
Miguel Montero
Wilin Rosario
Rizzo
Beltre
A. Escobar
Morse
Trout
Bruce
Ethier
Youkilis

I will give my opinion if you want it so, whir.

Pitchers:
Halladay ;-D
Garza
Dickey ;-D
Niese ;-D
C.J. Wilson ;-D
McDonald
Jim Johnson

Hitters:
Miguel Montero ;-D
Wilin Rosario
Rizzo
Beltre ;-D
A. Escobar
Morse ;-D
Trout ;-D
Bruce ;-D
Ethier ;-D
Youkilis

Last three were tough. Could go a lot of different ways but stuck with Montero, Morse and Niese. Garze was a close fourth.

I was thinking about keeping Rosario and Rizzo instead and moving Ethier and Montero. I like Rosario being in Colorado for the numbers and he brought up his average to .270 by the end of the season.

I also currently have a standing offer of Ethier and J. Johnson for Alex Gordon.

I'm okay with Rosario over Montero. I would toss Niese back and keep Rizzo. Do you have to keep 5 from each side? If so I would rather have Rizzo than Ethier.

I don't need to keep 5 on each but I feel it will make things easier for the draft. I'm working on moving Montero, Youkilis, and Garza (or some combination) for a #3 pick in the first round next year.

you wouldn't draft 5 pitchers in 10 players in a new draft so don't keep 5 pitchers unless they are way better than your hitters. yours aren't. certainly if you can trade 2-3 for a draft upgrade, do that. you've got plenty of keeper choices, I'd make Rizzo 1 of them and probly 6 other hitters

I'm ok with Rizzo over Niese. I am not sold on Rizzo though and I think Niese is a solid but unspectacular SP. Rizzo has more upside but I don't think he reaches that upside next year and his floor is a lot lower than Niese.

Update:

Traded Andre Ethier for #3 pick in round 11 (round 1) and Johnathan Niese for #3 pick in round 1 of our MiLB draft.
