Last keeper slot (Headley or Machado) (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Sat Mar 23, 2013 1:09 pm

Deep Roster ESPN Head to Head points league. 12 team league, we expanded this season from 10 teams, hence why my keepers are STUDS

Draft is tomorrow, and was wondering would anyone drop 3B - C.Headley from my keepers and keep 3B - M.Machado now instead because of the injury. Its a shame cause I traded for Headley this offseason. Wasn't keeping Machado trying to get him back in the 1st rd. of the 12 team keeper. Every team keeps 17 players annually. meaning 204 players will be off the books from the get go.


3B - M.Machado
C/DH - J.Montero
LF/CF - D.Jennings
3B - W.Middlebrooks
SP - C.Buchholz
RP - K.Jansen
RP - E.Frieri

C - C.Santana (1B/DH)
1B - A.Gonzalez
2B - R.Cano
3B - C.Headley (out a month) :~(
SS - T.Tulowitzki
2B/SS - J.Kipnis (2B)
1B/3B - A.Rizzo (1B)
IF - I.Kinsler (2B)
LF - C.Gonzalez
CF - A.McCutchen
RF - S.S.Choo

I would still stick with the more proven player in Headley. He should only miss two to four weeks of the regular season since he had no ligament damage.

I would keep Middlebrooks over retaining Machado [edited]. I am not Headley fan, but you would have to stick with him over Machado at this point.

ANy thoughts here would be appreciated: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=456862

Here's an idea toss all 3 3b odds are you'll get one back in the draft.
Keep LF/CF - D.Jennings since OF seems to be the most valuable.

Love Desmond Jennings this year, a lot more than Machado. Think he could be a definite 20/20 guy.
