Need Help Keepers Due Tonight WHIR

Postby ChicksDigTheLongBall » Fri Mar 22, 2013 7:22 pm

12 team h2h league w/6 keepers plus minor league keepers
Point system:
Single = 1pt, double =2, HR = 4, SB = 2, Runs, RBI =1pt
Wins/Saves = 10 pts, Loss = -10, IP = 2 pts, K = 1 pt, BB = -1

We start C,1,2,3,SS,3 OF, 3 Util, 7 SP and 2 RP (6 player bench)

I have gone young over the past few seasons and have a tough decision tonight. I have the #9 pick next week in a snake draft.

Need to pick 6 for a head to head league with keepers that have no year limits when kept:

Joey Votto
Prince Fielder
Mike Trout
Bryce Harper
Josh Hamilton
Stephen Strasburg
Madison Bumgarner
Cole Hamels

Please and thank you for the help!

I forgot to add that I have Jurickson Profar in one of 5 minor league slots that don't count towards my 6 mlb keepers.

Also forgot to add that I have Matt Moore in an arbitration keeper slot as an over the limit minor leaguer that also doesn't count towards my keepers. I shouldn't have smoked that j before posting.

Votto
Fielder
Trout
Harper
Strasburg
Bumgarner

If it was just this year, I'd take Hamilton over Bumgarner. But with an unlimited keeper, I'd take Bumgarner. Hamilton has a high ceiling, but he's too much of an injury risk for the long term. Bumgarner should be a top SP for the next few years.

Thanks for help with mine.

thanks for help on mine:

You do have a tough choice.

I think there is one no-brainer to drop in the group: Hamilton.

Hamilton is a beast when healthy.....and a 2nd or 3rd round pick in a re-draft league. But when compared to your other options, his injury risks make him expendable.

Also, there is no way I would keep 3 SP's in a league with only 6 keepers. So that means you keep Votto, Fielder, Trout and Harper for sure.


So the truly difficult decision is which SP to drop. While I absolutely LOVE Mad-Bum, he just isn't quite at the same level as Hamels or Strasburg. So Bumgarner is the guy I drop.


In short, here it the 6 I keep:

Votto
Fielder
Trout
Harper
Hamels
Strasburg


That's a damned solid group.....good luck in the draft

Thank you all for the input. I decided on:
Votto
Fielder
Trout
Harper
Strasburg
Hamels

Sucked to let Bumgarner go, but I have Matt Moore as a #3 going in. I also have Jurickson Profar which is nice.
