Kemp or Pujols, both or neither...

Postby corcam22 » Mon Mar 11, 2013 2:41 pm

Please help, trouble deciding on keepers, deadline tonight. Both are pricey, but they are 2 of the top 6 overall, and almost all other top players are being kept. Which do I keep, either, both, neither....thanks. Input on other keepers for my roster would be great also. Thanks.

What's your total budget? Used to seeing $260, so not sure how those dollar values relate to your total budget. With that said, I'd personally keep Kemp over Pujols at a higher price. I'll take the 30 HRs, great avg and SBs in the OF vs 1B. Would be helpful to know your keeper budget/keeper limits to be able to give an opinion on the rest.

Hope that helps!

$26 budget, can keep 15 of total roster of 23 (which won't effect me).

I think that's way too much money for Pujols. Sure, his regression phase is still going to be a great player this year. But he won't be worth 20% of your budget. Since you said most of the best players are being kept, I would hang onto Kemp.

Please help with mine:

I like Jennings at $1, nice value there. Melky Cabrera for $0.10 (am I reading that right?) as a top-30 OF seems like a steal. I also like Evereth Cabrera at SS for his SB, but could you get him back for less than $1? He's somewhere between 15-20 at his position. If the draft looks like its going to be shallow in power, Bautista at $2 doesn't seem too bad. I generally don't keep closers, but the best one of that bunch is Soriano if you think he'll go for more than a $1 in the draft.

Neither IMO. The price tag is too high and you have lots of other great options.

That $53 apiece in a $260 league? Wow, sounds too steep. But then again, Melky seems way too cheap and Rutledge too pricey, lol. It looks like the league redistributes players' values pretty differently than one might expect.

Not knowing what the other top guys are going for (maybe your league is top-heavy on the elite guys and artificially lower on the subsequent tiers) I'd say it looks too steep for either.
