Who would you keep?

Postby dubstar » Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:16 pm

I can keep 6 of the following 8 players. I don't think I would get Kinsler or even Bruce back if I don't keep them. Possibly Bruce

Kemp 1
Kinsler 2
Bruce 3
Butler 9
Andrus 13
Santana 18
Lawrie 19
Sale 20

10 team h2h
R hr RBI SB obp xbh

Santana C 18
Butler 1b 9
Andrus SS 13
Lawrie 3b 19
Kemp OF 1
Sale 20

Bruce in 3rd is too high.
Kinsler is also easily not a good value.

Kemp is legit 1st round talent so he's worth your first round pick, the rest are at least good or on par values.

The thing is, with Kinsler and Bruce and the way top keepers are spread all throughout the rounds in my league, they will be 2 of the top 5-6 players available. That has to be taken into account, the rounds are all skewed after several years with our keeper format. I agree that Bruce isn't a round 3 in a straight redraft. Does that change anything?

You made it on SiriusXM this morning didn't you? This question sounded familiar! Lol...

I would let Kinsler and Bruce go here, the value you're getting from the other 6 are just too great to pass up.

This is all about value and where you get it. Kinsler is a 3rd round and Bruce is a late 3rd. All other's would slotted significantly higher than where you get them other than the obv Kemp, who is a top 4 pick, thus you keep him because you can't improve.

I totally agree with all you guys about value, that's usually how I look at my keepers. But looking at Kinsler as a second rounder in this case really isn't accurate. He will be one of the top 3 players available and will probably be gone before my second round pick, which will probably be the 5th or 6th overall pick. So I am looking at it like this, is it worth having Andrus and not having Kinsler. Kinsler would be the only top remaining 2b not being kept already. Same thing with Bruce, he will probably be the top OF available if I let him go and I may not get him back. Not trying to argue, just want you guys to know where I'm coming from.

Brainstorm - yep, I was on this morning.... haha
