I play in a ten team, H2H, yahoo league that keeps 6 players.

Cats are...
Batters - R,RBI,HR,SB,AVG,OPS
Pitchers - ERA,K,S,WHIP,BB/9,QS

You are allowed to keep:
2 players that you drafted between rounds 1-5
2 players that you drafted between rounds 6-10
2 players that you drafted between rounds 11-23

An owner is not required to keep players from any round. You can sacrifice a higher round pick for a lower round pick. For example, an owner could keep 4 players from rounds 6-10 if the owner gave up keeping all of his 1-5 picks. This allows us to keeper players that have a greater keeper value.

The round the player would cost me is in ().

Here's my roster:

Erick Aybar(16)
Jose Bautista(2)
Pedro Ciriaco(23)
Allen Craig(23) ;-D ;-D
Paul Goldschmidt(17)
Carlos Gomez(23)
Curtis Granderson(10)
Torii Hunter(23)
Austin Jackson(23)
Brett Lawrie(22)
Buster Posey(8) ;-D
Mike Trout(15) ;-D ;-D ;-D
Joey Votto(1) ;-D

Pitchers
Homer Bailey(23)
Johnny Cueto(12)
Marco Estrada(23)
Roy Halladay(1)
Steve Johnson(23)
Clayton Kershaw(1)
Ricky Nolasco(23)
Andy Pettitte(23)
Stephen Strasburg(17) ;-D ;-D ;-D
Chris Tillman(23)
Justin Verlander(4) ;-D ;-D

To me the locks are...
Mike Trout(15)
Buster Posey(8)
Stephen Strasburg(17)

After that I am less decided. To me the following all need to be considered.
Allen Craig(23)
Paul Goldschmidt(17)
Curtis Granderson(10)
Brett Lawrie(22)
Justin Verlander(4)

What six do I keep? THANKS! ...and WHIR


Ok so there are my six, votto is a first rounder no doubt about it, then verlander for a 4th round is tremendous value, way more then kershaw for a 1st, I think the last 4 are easy choices as well. You have some real value in players like stras and trout, but craig at 23 is a real bargin, way better than goldie at 17 in my opinon....good luck ;-D ;-D ;-D

Can you keep Goldschmidt, Trout, & Strasburg if you only keep 1 in rd 6-10? I think from reading your original post you can. If so, I'd do that plus Verlander, Bautista & Posey


Help me?

To me its...

Votto (1)
Verlander (4)

Posey (8)

Trout (15)
Goldschmidt (17)
Strasburg (17)

I don't mind losing the opportunity to keep Granderson for a 10th, when Goldschmidt at 17(or 16 if you go up a round since Stras is a 17th too) is a better value.

Im sorry but the possibility of 100-38-110-10-.240, is definitly worth a 10th rounder, yes his avg is brutal, but how could u discount what the guy has done the previous 2 seasons, especially over goldy who might get better...lawrie and hosmer were supposed to be awsome as well following there rookie seasons. Grandy in the 10th is a no brainer in my mind, especially with all the awsome AVG he has.

Sure, def worth a 10th rounder, but the production I'm expecting to get from a 17th rounder in Goldschmidt can exceed him value wise. That's no discredit to Granderson and the value he brings. It's certainly a tough decision though.

See thats why I say grandy, because your saying your expecting goldy to do something.But granderson is doing it, year after year...100-35ish-110-240ish-10....almost guarenteed, I have no doubt goldy is going to be good, just not that good yet, and a 10 round for those #s is awsome value...in my opionin....
