Keeper question

Postby govols9er » Tue Feb 05, 2013 12:07 am

League 9 teams roto hitting cats: avg, r, hr, RBI, sb, bb, k. Pit cats: w, l, k, vs, era, whip, qs
Pos: c, 1b, 2b, 3b, Ss, of,of,of,util sp,sp,rp,rp,p,p,p

Keep 6
Mine for sure:
1b: pujols
2b:pedroia
Ss: Reyes
Of:Stanton
Sp:price

Last keeper: Mauer or kimbral
I have the first pick and Santana will be there as well
Any opinions here? I've had Mauer for a while and have never thought of keeping a closer before.

I am not a fan of keeping a closer. Mauer is never going to hit 22 HRs but his BA for a C is huge. I would try and find closers in your draft and as we saw last yr, closer change all season long and you can find a couple guys on waivers if you are on top of things.

This is the absolute only closer I'd keep and you should keep him too.

He isn't just a closer, he is on a different level


Absolutely no way I'd keep Mauer over him, especially with Santana available

Kimbrel ;-D

Choose 9 guys who we can possibly keep at the end of the year. I traded Zobrist for picks in the draft and my other option is Halladay.

Who else besides Kimbrel/Mauer/Halladay do you have to choose from?
Do you have a decent 3b or another OF or a younger but good SP?
Just wondering.

If you don't I guess I'd keep Kimbrel and draft Santana that or get another stud 3b (best available ADP 3b if one exists)

Keep Kimbrel, but I wouldn't necessarily draft Santana first. 3B should be something you address quickly.

3B that are available: Headley, A.Ramirez, Freese, Sandovol, Prado
There are only 3 guys without a 3B so I should be ok waiting on one of them.

I don't like the idea of using a keeper spot on a closer but Kimbrel is the best player at his position and from this group. I wouldn't expect big things from Mauer either...only 22hrs in the 3 seasons since his 28hr campaign and he's a major injury risk. At the same time I don't trust Santana especially as a first rd pick.

I'd hate to use my keeper spot on him, but the safe pick her is Kimbrel.
