2013 Keeper League keepers..NEED HELP

Postby Gliker05 » Sun Dec 30, 2012 12:55 pm

I'm sorry if this isn't the proper place to post this, but I don't post on forums often and this seemed like a good place to post this. For the 2012 fantasy baseball season, I joined a first year keeper league. The rules are simple, for the 2013 season we may keep 3 players from our 2012 rosters, can't be our first picks, and wherever we drafted that player, is the position we give up in the 2013 draft. Another factor is since I won the league, I will be drafting last in 2013. Having said that, which three keepers would you hold on to, and if you could give a brief reason why, that would be helpful. Thank you for your time. Also, it is a 12-team league.

Round 3: Andrew McCutchen (keep in mind, 12 team league, last pick, snake draft, means this would act as the 36th pick of the draft)
Round 7: Madison Bumgarner
Round 8: Buster Posey
Round 13: Johnny Cueto
Round 15: Ryan Howard
Round 16: Edwin Encarnacion
Round 19: Yoenis Cespedes
Round 25: Aroldis Chapman and Fernando Rodney (we can only keep on person we picked up off the waiver wire, so i could only keep 1 of them, but either will act as my last pick)

Thanks for reading.

this isnt the proper forum but I'll help you out anyway. Since I'm a nice guy.

Posey, Encarnacion and Chapman. Chapman moving to the rotation takes a hit in value so It would be reasonable to switch him out for Cespedes.

Draft, Trade, Keeper and Waivers Questions would have been where to post...
Cutch Posey & EE for me.
I wouldn't take either pitcher ahead of these hitters. Chap as a starter has some Q's to be answered & I wouldn't take a closer as a keeper in a 3 keeper league

Cutch, E5 & Cespedes ... unless it's a 2 catcher league. Then I hold Posey over E5.

McCutchen and EE are the easy ones. I think I would take Posey. I am still not a believer in Cespedes and getting Posey in the 8th is better value IMO.

Did any of you look as Cespedas vs McCutchen last year? You would be silly to take him in 3rd vs Cespedas a whole bunch later!!
