Which 8 players should I keep?!??

Postby TheGhost » Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:21 pm

Just wondering which keepers I should select in my fantasy league this year. We keep 8. None of the keepers hold any round value so it's just about keeping the 8 best players. H2H scoring 12 teams. Thanks!!! ;-D

I didn't want to, but your pitching depth requires you keep 4 of them. If you can trade a pitcher for a hitter, I would do that as I didn't see your hitting being particularly strong. If you're concerned about Cruz and the PED's, you could keep Altuve or Napoli instead, depending on your power or speed preference.

Rosario and Pence are very close, but I lean Rosario because of age and position.

How are we saying he should drop Wainwright for a guy like Rosario? That's nothing against Rosario, but Wainwright could be a top 10-15 pitcher overall this year.

Flip a coin between Rosario and Wainwright. Do you want a stud Catcher or another Stud arm? It's up to you. But I wouldn't fault you for keeping either one.

please help

Rosario C
Hanley SS
Wright 3b
AJax OF

Kershaw
Wainwright
Matt Cain
R.A. Dickey

These easily.
Pence ? No thanks. Cruz? Fading/scandal suspension issues. Throw em both back.
The one player I hate throwing back is Altuve. A 300/35SB 2b is tough to find.
If you wanted why not try packaging Dickey or Wainwright with Pence etc to land you a good 1b keeper (maybe Freeman or someone like that) and then keep Altuve with the free spot generated.
