This team sucks, but I still have to pick keepers...

Postby Fenris-77 » Sat Jan 19, 2013 9:12 pm

Arrgh. This team is old and my draft last year was, I'll admit, poor (we changed scoring cats and I didn't adjust well). Anyway, we keep five (no draft penalties) and I have three or four solid keepers, and then a bunch of whatever. The league is 6x6 with R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG for hitters, and SV,K HLD, ERA, WHIP, QS for pitchers.

Guys I'm sure I want to keep:

Adam Jones
Josh Hamilton
Jose Reyes
Cole Hamels

Other guys:

Roy Halladay (maybe a trade here)
Brandon Morrow
Kevin Youkilis
Chase Utley
Josh Willingham
Alex Avila


I think it's really about Halladay's value here, and what people think about Morrow's upcoming season with some newfound run support. I'm considering trading Halladay for a pick upgrade and keep Morrow.

QS? What the...?

Yes to the guys you want to keep

the other 2:
Halladay
Utley (if healthy) Otherwise Youkilis
I love mock drafts.

You don't like quality starts?

I only keep five total, so it's either Halladay or someone else. The answer is probably Halladay, but last season was disappointing enough that I'll give not keeping him some thought.

I keep Halladay as I think its probably worth taking a chance that he bounces back, especially considering your other options.

A thought, perhaps instead of trying to trade Halladay, trade Hamels for another bat and keep Halladay. You'll probably get more value from Hamels than Halladay.

In a league that only has 5 keepers, I don't love the idea of having to keep 2 pitchers.

Trade one of your pitchers for another bat

Nope, me neither. That shizz sucks pretty hard. Halladay or Hamels for a bat sounds like a reasonable idea.

Willingham over Halladay huh? Interesting. You got some details there? I'm just curious.

I think that you need to roll the dice with Halladay. Willingham's upside doesn't even compare.

If you can't work out a trade without giving up one of your sure keepers, I'd go ahead and roll with Halladay.
