Keeper Help

Postby DonnieBaseball78 » Wed Jan 02, 2013 1:56 pm

I am in a 12 team, 6x6 head to head league. Catagories are H, R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP and W, K's, WHIP, ERA, S, and BAA.

We keep 10 players from here on out...

Who would you keep out of the following people. 10 total. No restrictions.

molina
hosmer
craig
hanley
choo
moustakas
seager (2b eligibility in my league)
Ike davis
trumbo
reddick
nelson cruz
bonifacio
marte
ian kennedy
matt harvey
wainright
j. zimmerman
mike minor

Thanks for the suggestions and any insight into why you like one over another. I have my favorites, just looking for second opinions. Thanks!

Not a ton of great value here. If you can't start Davis and Hosmer I would probably keep Reddick instead of Ike.

Hosmer (even after the down season, still think he'll turn things around)
Craig (I feel like you almost have to keep him, I'll use him or Davis as trade bait though)
Hanley (New life with the Dodgers, roll with him)
Davis (If he gets that avg up, look out future stud)
Trumbo (Going to have 1B, 3B and OF eligibility, that 3B eligibility is huge)
Reddick (Look at Davis)
Kennedy (Don't think he'll be as good as 2011, but could see him putting up Gallardo type stats)
Harvey (Wins might be hard to come by but everything else should be good)
Wainright (He'll get back to his old self)
Zimmerman (Pretty good season last year, he'll only get better)

Just a note, I'm not as high as others on Molina. I don't think he's going to put up those types of power numbers again, people will reach on the guy this coming season.

I am good with this. I am not as high on Davis as Element is so I would probably take Reddick over him although I don't think Reddick repeats last years numbers either.

Thanks fellas.

We had most picks the same...was curious on what others thought of Harvey as I wanted to take the chance of keeping him.

A bit surprised no one choose Seager at 2B. Seems like decent production for a MI/2B last year..not sure on him though.

Also a little suprised only one person liked Trumbo. I get he is more of an all or nothing guy with a low obp but hitting 5th (?) in that lineup they have now thought his rbi/hr total might get him more votes.

Again, I appreciate the input. Thanks.

Next season both Bautista and Encarnacion will not be 3B eligible. It's going to make 3B very shallow. Likely all the elite/top 3B will be kept, so the fact that Trumbo should have 3B eligibility it's going to up his value. I rather have him at 3B than someone like Youk. Also I don't think you'll be able to draft a better 3B than Trumbo in a 12 team 10 keeper league, just don't see someone not keeping their 3B if it's someone of value.
