Keeper League Decisions/Trade Opportunities....WHIR

Postby askretzinger » Fri Jan 25, 2013 10:12 pm

It's never too early to get baseball fever! I'm in a 12 team 5 x 5 roto style keeper league, we must keep 5 players and draft order is randomized each year. I need to determine my 5 keepers plus have a potential trade looming and would like to hear people's thoughts and feedback. I will also add there is a 220 starts maximum, but no cap on IP. Here is my final roster from 2012 (and some thoughts):

C Yasmani Grandal
C Carlos Ruiz
1B Brandon Moss
2B Aaron Hill
3B Aramis Ramirez
SS Pete Kozma
2B/SS Johnny Peralta
1B/3B Adrian Gonzalez
OF Ryan Braun
OF Josh Hamilton
OF Jay Bruce
OF Jon Jay
OF Drew Stubbs
UTIL Mark Reynolds
BN Justin Morneau

P RA Dickey
P CJ Wilson
P Tommy Hanson
P Ian Kennedy
P Josh Johnson
RP Casey Janssen
RP Luke Gregerson
RP Addison Reed
RP Jason Grilli
BN Trevor Bauer
BN Bobby Parnell
BN Kevin Jepsen
BN Koji Uehara
BN Jose Arrendondo
BN Drew Storen

Now, we have a possible trade offer for our first pick of the draft for Joey Votto. That of course takes us out of the first round and we keep only 4 from this list. There always seems to be great pitching available late in this league and big bats are a bit more difficult to come by.

The Votto trade is not a certain either but my question is if it is worth replacing my 5th keeper and 1st pick for Votto. If the trade doesn't happen then I will need to decided a 5th keeper from this list, and that was pretty much my first question. Had already landed genuinely on Braun, Gonazalez, Hamilton, and Bruce.

I think you keep the 4 you mentioned and make that trade for Votto.

Any idea who the best available player will be at 1.1?

I can only speculate first round would consist of possibilities like Elvis Andrus, Zack Greinke, Billy Butler, BJ Upton, Brett Lawrie, Kris Medlan, Michael Bourne, Mark Trumbo. However, I still don't know if that Votto trade will happen and will need to know who to keep if it doesn't.
