How did I do in this keeper league?

Postby DutchySox » Mon Mar 17, 2014 5:28 am

I'm in a 12-team, head-to-head keeper league (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP / K, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, QS). We keep five players. I drafted 12th (as I won last year's championships) and we draft linear (not snake, so 1 - 12, and then start at 1 again). It was a crazy draft full of reaches by everyone, so I'm curious as to how you all think I did.

I added the round I drafted the players in, for extra perspective. Again, due to the keeper aspect, the draft pool was already substantially limited (disclaimer for my reaches). Also, I didn't have a 13th round pick, but had two 16th rounders (trade from last year).

As always, leave a link and I'll happily return the favor.

C - Wilin Rosario (keeper, 11th round)
1B - Mark Trumbo (4th round)
2B - Matt Carpenter (keeper, 8th round)
3B - Jedd Gyorko (6th round)
SS - Ian Desmond (keeper, 9th round)
OF - Adam Jones (1st round)
OF - Jay Bruce (2nd round)
OF - Wil Myers (keeper, 10th round)
UT - Jose Abreu (7th round)

BN - Xander Bogaerts (14th round)
BN - Avisail Garcia (16th round)
BN - Leonys Martin (17th round)
BN - Victor Martinez (19th round
NA - George Springer (23rd round)

SP - Mat Latos (3rd round)
SP - Danny Salazar (5th round)
SP - Jose Fernandez (keeper, 12th round)
SP - Taijuan Walker (15th round)
SP - Yordano Ventura (16th round)
SP - Chris Tillman (20th round)

RP - Tommy Hunter (18th round)
RP - Tanner Scheppers (21st round)
RP - Brad Ziegler (22nd round)

My personal thoughts are that I'm light on steals and have no closers (kept losing out on the late-round guys I was planning on grabbing, so I just stock piled a few next-in-liners who can easily be swapped out). Also, I have one remaining open spot, as I moved Springer to my NA slot. I went crazy high upside in this draft (sort of forced, but I love those high-upside pitchers this year).

Thanks! Remember: leave a link!

Crazy upside, I love your offense especially your outfield and utility. Your bench is even nice I like vmart. Good job getting springer. You will definetly need to keep an eye out to grab some closers if any become available off the wire. I like venturas upside. Overall really good looking team.

Wow, tough draft structure. But hey, if that's what a league championship costs... sign me up. Solid keepers; middle infield and a top 10 SP help your draft position. Outfield is solid. Saves always surface. Speed a concern, as you noted. I imagine both Revere and Eaton were drafted, but if not I'd drop Martinez, ugh, for additional speed. As you have seen my SP, you know I like your young pitching talent.
