Final keeper - JJohnson or McCann, WHIR

Postby labardo31 » Mon Feb 11, 2013 9:59 am

Hey guys,

8x8 16 team roto league, keep 8 total. My keepers are insanely hitter heavy, but I feel I have no other choice. My final decision is to keep another bat (McCann) or try to balance things a little by keeping Josh Johnson. What do you all think?

1. McCutchen
2. Fielder
3. J. Upton
4. Lawrie
5. Bourn
6. Prado
7. CC Sabathia
8. McCann/Johnson

Thanks in advance for your help. Leave a link if you'd like me to return the favor.

I would go with Johnson. Like you said, it balances your team out a bit. Also, McCann is going to be out a month minimum from the sounds of it. Not that Johnson doesn't have his injury concerns but he could be a solid SP2 for you if he returns at all back to his form. Your team seems pretty solid and I would think you could get a catcher that could put up McCann's numbers easily considering the time he will miss.

Help with mine?

I would not keep either if i could avoid it. Both have bad shoulders, Johnson may be better than last year. Mccann is healing slowly. If I had to keep one it would be Johnson. I suggest that you offer another keeper for 2-3 players and keep the new players.

The only other viable keeper option I have is R. Weeks. It's an interesting thought, but I think my offensive keepers make him unnecessary.

C - McCann
1b - Fielder
2b - R. Weeks, N. Walker
SS - none (Prado qualifies)
3b - Lawrie, Prado
Of - Mccutchen, J. Upton, Bourn
SP - Sabathia, JJ, Lester, Hanson, B. Anderson
RP - Rivera, Nathan

Holes in the roster are from cutting clear non keepers.

An argument can be made to keep Rivera, but I'm reluctant.

Additionally I have two first round picks (14 & 15 overall). The next pick I have after those is #34 overall.

I'd take McCann or Anderson (in a deeper league I'd take a top bat in a shallower position over a troubled arm with upside.) Either are risky picks.

You do have Neil Walker he's a safe option for 2b. If he can stay healthy for a full sesaon you have yourself a stud there. He's another option since you gonna play Prado at SS and Lawrie at 3b.

McCann is not ready so I would pass. I would keep Johnson, but I like Anderson more. Anderson will be available later in the draft than Johnson, so still target Anderson and trade Johnson after the draft and before the start of the season.
