Keeper choice

Postby Grounded Polo » Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:35 pm

12 team roto, 5x5, keep 6, no restrictions

I'm locked into J Upton, Felix, Gio, Adam Jones, and Wright, not sure about my last spot - either Dickey, Wainwright, or Freddie Freeman. Dickey was the choice when I asked months ago but not sure if the trade makes a difference.

I'd also like to say I can compete this year but the defending champ's team is just too stacked - Tulo, Kemp, Fielder, Verlander, Beltre, and of course he had Trout in his minors system. I'm thinking about just rolling the dice on Freeman now that mock drafts have my 3 options pegged at similar draft values but would like to be talked out of it if that's not the way to go.

Yes Freeman is solid entering his third year, better lineup protection hitting in a premium spot in the lineup. You already have 2 keeper pitchers already and would go with Freeman I guess since you need the bat clearly.

Wainwright easily imo, a better SP then Gio.
He is a top 15, maybe top 10 SP.

He already has enough pitching keepers.

Freeman is ur best bet he is young and has huge upside and he should have a solid core of players infront of him in the lineup with BJ, Simmons justin and heyward should give him lots of RBI chances
