Who to keep?(WHIR)

Postby Mikeyc » Tue Jan 15, 2013 10:56 pm

I like fielder/Kimbrel as sure bets . Beltre and pujols should be able to be drafted for possibly a little less than you have for now . Maybe Stanton as a 3rd option but definitely prince and the next Mariano

I like PR guy's ....and no i don't keep stanton. It's ROTO and OBP, Giancarlo has no supporting cast. I like Prince there...but Pujols would be tough to argue as well

This was a tough spot. Auctions are a little hard because its always tough to guage where people spend without knowing the managers in your league. I decided to keep only one of Stanton, Fielder or Pujols. To me it was Stanton or Fielder (I didnt think the difference between those two and Pujols was worth $10). Ultimately I went with Fielder.

I opted not to keep Sabathia because with the guys I took, your budget is already more than half gone going into the draft. I wouldnt want to take Sabathia and have handcuff myself with having no money in the draft.

Finally I kept Buerhle, only because I don't know what pitching will go for in your league. I figure for $7 bucks in a QS league he will probably be pretty useful. If you think you can get equivalent guys in the draft at $7 then definitely throw back Buerhle.

I would keep Prince, King, Dunn, Rios, Rollins or Zobrist, Kimbrel, and Alvarez

You still have about 100 bucks to work with and have some solid priced talent.

I could see taking Stanton instead of Prince or King---but not Pujols (love him but cost too high for what your getting)

hope that helped

I think Edwin @ 4, McDonald @ 5, and Wandy @ 6 are all good value.

Edwin will get you 20-25 QSs and 170+ Ks. That's good value for $4 I think.

McDonald is a young up and comer who I feel will expand on his sort of breakout year last season.

Wandy can still get it done and has always had a solid K/9 throughout his career. If he stays healthy he'll get ya 30 QSs and 180+ Ks with a respectable ERA and WHIP.

None of these guys are very sexy picks but $15 for the production you can expect is a good deal imo.

Who of the following would you keep? I have more than 32 players because I have made some deals to better my keepers but will probably throw back a bunch of players. Please help! Thanks. Prices are up 3 dollars if I were to keep them.

id rather keep the offence and draft the pitching, both are fair value however but i dont see you keeping them plus the hitter.

This. You can always draft pitching, hitting is always more valuable to me in my books than pitchers.

Thanks for the help on mine!
