Help me in a very deep league, with a twist WHIR

Postby NY Knights » Thu Dec 12, 2013 3:24 pm

Very deep mixed league 6x6 (OPS and Holds) roto keeper, 14 owners x 40 man rosters = 560 players drafted. Keep 8, but you give up the draft pick in the round where the keeper was selected last year, minus 3. So if Freeman was taken in the 8th round last year, you'd need to give up a 5th round pick to keep him this year. There is high value on young players previously taken in a late round, as you give up very little to keep them, and you can hold them many years. In the Freeman example, you could keep him this year in the 5th round, and perhaps next year in the 2nd, but after that he gets thrown back into the pool.

These are the 9 guys I like, with the round I'd need to give up to keep them. Since I can only keep 8, who would you toss back or try to trade?

OF Harper (34th last year, 31st this year)
1B Hosmer (33/30)
3B Seager (35/32)
OF Jennings (32/29)
SP Wheeler (31/28)
SP Wacha (24/21)
SP Archer (23/20)
SP Bumgarner (19/16)
OF S. Marte (15/12)

Which one do I toss back or trade? WHIR. Thanks!

I'd probably kick back Marte or Jennings.

Jennings has never lived up to the hype, and isn't that young anymore.

Marte cost you an earlier pick, and has a pretty high BABIP if i remember right and barely walks. He's got a ton of potential, but if his K rate and BB rate stay where they are, it could be trouble.

Marte. Just not sold on him so an easy choice for me.

Marte is the most wanted man in my winter trade session; I'd keep him. I like all your choices, hitters over pitchers tho...Archer gets my drop/trade

Archer or Jennings for me. I really like the skill set Marte brings to the table.

I'd drop archer. Marte has the potential to do great things in the future. If Marte pans out you've hit the jackpot.

Another vote for Archer. I expect some regression there.

Jennings, Archer. I see the argument on Marte but I am a fan.

Jennings

Marte is a great value at 12, especially if other teams have similar keepers as you. He could very well be a 2nd or 3rd rounder in your league at least

I guess I don't understand the infatuation with Jennings. He doesn't seem like he will live up to the hype and seems like he will be a bit of a drag on your OPS, especially coming from the outfield.

Please give me a quick thought about this trade proposal.
