Choose 5 keepers

Postby bravo369 » Sat Aug 03, 2013 9:54 am

I'm towards the bottom of my keeper league and just out of the playoffs so I'm thinking of making some late season trades for draft picks next year. I can only choose 5 keepers from year to year so which of these players would you keep? I was thinking of trading Lee but he's still so productive that maybe he's worth keeping into next year and trading then.


Gattis
beltre
trumbo
braun
cliff lee
verlander
Sale
Lance Lynn

1b Trumbo
3b beltre

I would try and package Gattis Lynn and Lee for an elite 2b or SS like Cano or Tulo.

Beltre
Braun
Trumbo
Sale
Cliff Lee

I would trade Verlander and/or Lynn for a better keeper than Trumbo if possible.

Of those players, the 5 I'd keep would be:

beltre
braun
cliff lee
verlander
Sale

That said, I'm not a huge fan of keeping SPs, even premier ones over position players, so I'd strongly consider trying to trade 1-2 of those top SPs (Verlander/Sale?) and try to get another top 10 position player.

I'm in the same boat here, these are the top 5 players on that list. However, if you can package 2 SP's or a SP and Trumbo and get another hitter, you could greatly improve your keeper selection.

I agree with these two. I'd move any combination not involving Beltre/Braun/Lee to try to improve your keepers.

Similar situation for me: viewtopic.php?t=463807

Thanks. I was leaning towards beltre, braun, verlander, lee and sale but wasn't sure whether i should consider the younger guys over productive guys.

Coincidentally, I've been offered nelson cruz for trumbo but I'm asking for a draft pick in that trade too if I'm taking on a dead weight for the rest of the season.
