Keeper Help- H2H points

Postby mkultra » Wed Feb 13, 2013 1:54 pm

Scoring below. We keep 5 for up to 3 years each. Power hitters and pitchers are the most valuable. My options are below, along with current contract years.

CarGo (2 years) - definitely keeping
Ellsbury (1 year)
Wainwright
J Zimmerman
Moore
Sale
Medlen

I'm leaning toward the top 5 listed, even though Moore is probably a weaker option in 2013 than Sale. Thoughts? WHIR!

SCORING:
1B Singles 1 point
2B Doubles 2 points
3B Triples 3 points
BB Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS Caught Stealing -1 point
CYC Hitting for the Cycle 10 points

CarGo is a no brainer. Ellsbury I guess I'd keep, but not expect too much out of. As far as pitchers, Wainwright is an easy choice, and Zimmermann and Medlen get you wins (which is 10 points each) so I'd keep them over Sale and Moore. Moore's the hyped up player to watch this year, but in the crazy AL East, I'm staying away from possible sleepers in that division. Sale had the largest innings increase of any pitcher last year and I don't trust him this year. His 2nd half numbers were middle of the pack. Plus you'll be able to keep Medlen all three years and he'll be a solid player each of those three.

If i'm in your shoes, I'm keeping CarGo, Wainwright, Moore, Medlen, and Sale. The only reason I pick Sale over Zimmerman is that I think with Strasburg and Gio doing so well last year, people kind of look past Zimmerman and you could probably get him back at a reasonable price/draft position.

I also think Ellsbury was a one-hit wonder.

mkultra, I definitely agree with your top four choices. I'm a little wary of Ellsbury, but then I remember ***contract year***.

As for the last pick, it all depends on your hype/risk preferences. Medlen was awesome in very limited innings, but against some mediocre teams and a relatively small body of work. Sale's innings jump are are concern, but he says he's improved his conditioning and put some 10-15 pounds of muscle. And with Moore, I think someone already mentioned it depends if you believe the hype.

I think Medlen might have the better stats, but Sale/Moore might get more wins.

Good luck.
