And my final keeper is?

Postby Surfs up » Mon Mar 04, 2013 9:47 am

Here are the players I know for sure I am keeping with the years left they can be kept next to their name which includes this year. I play in a 12 team mixed 5x5 standard scoring. We keep six players with no penalties. Here are my five definates.
We freeze our rosters March 15th. Leaning hard toward Gio. I have offered Gio for Kimbrel but no word yet. Who would you take if the deal doesn't go through? Who would you take with the 4th and 5th overall picks from this list below?
Votto-2
Miggy-2
Braun- 2
Harper -3
Verlander -2

Sixth keeper
Gio
Rizzo
Rutledge
Simmons

Another thing I wanted to add to help make your choice. I have two first round picks . The 4th-5th overall . I have a second round pick but no third round pick . I do have two 6th-two 7th and two 8th.

Here is a list of players so far going back for sure.
Pujols
Fielder / Most likely the second overall pick
Cano / Most likely the first overall pick
Justin Upton / I know the manager with the third pick likes him
Reyes
Mccutchen He would be my pick with the 4th
Beltre
Felix
Weaver
Butler
Rollins
Holliday
Nelson Cruz

Keep Gio, no problem with the Kimbrel trade. Either one would be a great 6th keeper.

Justin Upton
Mccutchen

Gio is the guy you want off that list (or Kimbrel if you can get him in trade). I have to say though, if someone in yo0ur league drafts Upton over Cutch they should probably be shot and pissed on. :-b

Fenris easy. There are some that would buy into his upside...but I'd take Cutch anyday over JUp, still though.

With your first round pick I'd probably snag Reyes if available.
Keep Gio. He has most value of your remaining players. However if you didn't have Votto I would have elected Rizzo here but Gio is your best player if you ask me. Try to get Reyes or Cano (or BOHT? or even JUp) with your first round pick(s) and maybe best available 2b/SS/best available.

Gio is the keeper for sure. It will also make it easier grabbing hitters with your two first-round picks easier (although King Felix will be there if you want a Hernandez/Gonzalez 1-2). With all those great hitter available though, I think you're going to have a stacked lineup, so going with Gio makes sense even more.
