H2h keeper questions

Postby larry jones » Sat Feb 09, 2013 12:53 am

I am in need of some keeper advice. I am in and espn h2h points league and this year we are doing keepers. We are allowed 2 undroppable keepers, and 2 droppable keepers and next year we are upping it to 7 keepers no restrictions. I have a pickle with both choices. As of now I am thinking trout and Cano as my 2 undroppable keepers, then I saw the list of players that the other owners are keeping and there will not be a hands down Ace SP left on the draft board. So Kershaw started to look pretty attractive as a keeper, he is 25 vs Cano being 30 and Kershaw.

First question who to keep Trout and Cano or Trout and Kershaw. (if it helps I can post the list of all the Keepers from my league)

the next question is about my droppable keepers, right now I have Wieters and Freeman with the hope that he (freeman) will have a break out season. Are those the two best droppable keepers. I have lots of other thoughts, for example if I keep kershaw should I keep Aaron Hill? I am huge braves fan so I would like to keep Medlen and or Kimbrel but yea. Who to keep. I am open to anything basically I am just sure about keeping Trout.

Matt Wieters, Bal C K
Freddie Freeman, Atl 1B K
Dan Uggla, Atl 2B
Chipper Jones, Atl 3B
Robinson Cano, NYY 2B K undroppable
Anthony Rizzo, ChC 1B
Curtis Granderson, NYY OF undroppable
Mike Trout, LAA OF K undroppable
Tyler Colvin, Col OF, 1B
Ben Revere, Phi OF
Kevin Youkilis, NYY 3B, 1B
Jose Bautista, Tor OF undroppable
Aaron Hill, Ari 2B
Michael Bourn, FA OF
Brian McCann, Atl C DTD

Clayton Kershaw, LAD SP undroppable
Brandon Morrow, Tor SP
Tommy Milone, Oak SP
Ryan Vogelsong, SF SP
Kris Medlen, Atl RP, SP
Chris Tillman, Bal SP
Phil Hughes, NYY SP
Lance Lynn, StL SP
Andy Pettitte, NYY SP
Craig Kimbrel, Atl RP

Trout and Cano easily for undroppable.

Droppable is a little trickier. I'd probably go Hill and Freeman.

I like Rizzo over Freeman
Hill is the hot pick, but i might go Medlen, if you don't keep Kershaw.

If you are allowed 4 total keepers:
Trout, Cano, Bautista, Kershaw
Does it matter 'drop status' or not. That is ridiculous rules.

Trout/Kershaw for undroppables I suppose.
Droppables hmm...no one really jumps out.
I'd just keep your two 'undroppables' and take the extra picks and get top tier talent that you are throwing away if I'm reading right.

I hate leagues like this.

the League I am in is a bunch of buddies and this is the first time we are doing some keepers. But they are here to stay, the idea is to expand t0 7 keepers next year. we would like to also get into the money drafts not sure what they are called but where the players have costs and the teams have caps.

so I am leaning twards kershaw over cano only because I plan on him being my "ace" for the next 5 to 8 years. while Cano has more value now, he will drop off more being a middle infielder in his 30s. Now if I take Kershsaw should I keep Aaron hill (to lock down a decent 2nd) or stay with wieters, who I think will be a top C for a while and freeman who I am hoping as a braves fan will keep improving.

thanks again for the good responses

You don't want to keep Cano, because he's 30.
Yet you want to keep Hill, who's 30. Makes no sense.
Don't be a homer with Freeman over Rizzo.

Cano Trout
Rizzo Medlen

Trout Kershaw

I agree with Hootie. It is hands down Cano and Trout for undroppables and Rizzo and Medlen for droppables.

please help

just curious why no interest in keeping Wieters? I thought he was the best of my droppable keepers. I think I am set on Cano and Trout, but still going back and forth with wieters, freeman, medlen, rizzo and why not, I am considering kimbrel also

Wieters is good, but i rank him 5th of those 5. With only 4 keepers, i don't really want a C, unless it's Posey.
