Need help picking 10 keepers...

Postby Dubjay » Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:06 am

Hey just trying to get an early start on my keeper picks for next season. These guys managed to win it all for me last year so its not such an easy call.
I need to pick 10 keepers in a standard scoring yahoo 5X5 H2H league.

here is my squad

C-WILLIN ROSARIO
1B-M.TEIXEIRA
2B-D.PEDROIA
SS-J.ROLLINS
3B-B.LAWRIE
OF-M.KEMP
OF-C.GRANDERSON
OF-N.CRUZ
UTIL-C.GOMEZ
UTIL-E.HOSMER
BENCH-R.DAVIS

SP-M.BUMGARNER
SP-C.HAMELS
SP-M.LATOS
RP-A.CHAPMAN
RP-J.JOHNSON
P-C.JANSSEN
P-G.BALFOUR
BN-K.MEDLEN
BN-H.KURODA
BN-T.LINCECUM
BN-R.DEMPSTER

So as you can see, not too easy to narrow it down to 10

Any help would really be greatly appreciated.

This looks about right. Only thing I might change is Tex for Rollins. Not sold on either really so it could go either way but I think I believe in Tex slightly more.

I struggled with that as well. I went with Rollins since I had already picked Hosmer (also not sold on).

I think it's pretty simple. The only debate I would have is between keeping Latos, Lince or Medlin. I'd roll the dice on Medlin.

I would say Teixeira, Pedroia, Lawrie, Kemp, Granderson, Cruz, and Hosmer on the hitters side, and Bumgarner, Hamels, and Latos on the pitching side. I'm not as in love with Chapman as everyone else is, he has more value as a starter than a closer, but the problem is that I don't think he'll work well as a starter.
