Which 2: EE ($6), Freeman ($10), Rios ($4), Tulo ($26)

Postby Moss84 » Fri Mar 22, 2013 1:50 pm

12 team H2H mixed league keeper league.

Each team keeps 5 players: 1 IF, 1 OF, 1 SP , final two are any position.
Start each week: 1 at each IF, 3 OFs and one DH (any position), 5 SPs, 1 RP
Draft 25 players: 2 at each IF position, 5 OFs, 8 SPs, 2 RPs

Scoring is a little different from 5x5 - includes On Base % - 1 pt per hit, 2 per doubel, 3 pts for triple, 1 pt per BB, HBP, 2 pts per steal
Ex. Solo HR is worth 6 pts = HR (4) + Run (1) + RBI (1)

I'm pretty set on the following four players but open for suggestions:
C-Posey ($9), 1B-Encarnacion ($6), OF - McCutchen ($21), SP - Gio Gonzalez ($10) - provided he doesn't get suspended.

Encarnacion ($6 - keeper price): (highest scoring 1B in my league)- hitting cleanup in loaded lineup. However 2012 first monster year
Freeman ($10) - hitting cleanup
Rios ($4) - Rios hitting 3rd with half games in hitters stadium.
Tulowitzki ($26) - major injury risk at shallow position

Last 2 keepers come down to EE ($6), Freeman ($10), Rios ($4) -- crazy to even Consider Tulowitzki ($26) ? - Hanley injury diminishes number of elite SS available but monster injury risk. So many OF (deeper position) but could Rios produce top 20 numbers despite age and on again off again yearly production ?

Will answer yours.

EE is a shoe in at that price. I personally roll the dice on Tulo, if he stays healthy then that move could win you the pool due to scarcity at SS

Freeman at 10 is better than Rios at 4. Lots of guys will post Rios type numbers.

Encarnacion for certain.

Torn between Freeman and Tulo, but would have to go with Tulo even at the greater cost. If he stays healthy it's a bargin.

C-Posey ($9),
1B-Encarnacion ($6)
SS-Tulo 22
CI-Freeman 10
OF - McCutchen ($21)

With such few keepers unless you had a stacked staff on the cheap you keep your top bats.
