Need to keep 8 from this team... Opinions?

Postby Amazing Oopah » Tue Mar 05, 2013 9:10 pm

this is a keeper league, with 6x6 cats (the usual 5 with TB and HLD added) I need to keep 8 from this roster. Last season I decided to go on a youth movement and have compiled a nice pool of keeper options. Even if I limit my pitching to just 2 or 3 players, I will still have to part with some hitters I like. I'm exploring the possibility of some trading but if I don't pull anything off, which 8 players do you guys think I should keep? The players I definitely intend to keep are bolded but can still be talked out of owning them.


Jose Altuve
Billy Butler
Lorenzo Cain
Ike Davis
Logan Forsythe
Alex Gordon
Jason Heyward
Matt Holliday
Jason Kipnis
Jesus Montero

I think I'd tack on Butler, Gordon, and Moustakas to your list, and think really hard about Altuve instead of Kipnis.

Rizzo instead of Butler is a bold call. Keeping both works, but I don't see too many leagues where I toss Butler back in favor of the Riz.

I also agree that Rizzo over Butler is a bit of a risk. Would still recommend keeping Butler even if you're keeping Rizzo...in which case my other 2 choices would be Holliday and Gordon.
