Help with my keeper team!

Postby mikegp » Tue Dec 07, 2004 2:07 pm

I am in a 20 team H2H keeper league. We are allowed to keep 10 players AND/OR $40 million dollars in salary(the players' salaries are in the brackets beside their name). Which 10 players do you guys think i should keep for next season? As well, I'd like to get your opinion on Luis Matos because i think he'll be a great power and speed combo if he stays healthy. Keep in mind that Kaz Matsui should be moving to 2B next year. Thanks guys!

I don't play salary leagues, so I'm not really sure if I can help much here but I'll give it a shot:

Cabrera(6,000,000) -- Depends on where he ends up, but 6 seems like a good deal to me.
Matsui(5,000,000) -- Is that a little high? He should be better than last year and 2B eligibility will help I guess, but relative to the others 5 seems high to me. :-?
Jose Lopez(1,000,000) -- I don't know much about him, but I've heard good things and 1 is worth the chance.
Figgins(1,000,000) -- Great deal for just 1 IMO

Roy Halladay(6,000,000) -- I'm expecting a rebound year in '05. ;-D
Redman(2,000,000) -- A return to the NL could do him good....maybe. :-?
Peavy(1,000,000) -- Best bargain on the board IMO. ;-D

Cordero(2,000,000), -- I think he will come close to repeating '04's numbers
Brad Lidge(1,000,000) -- OK, maybe he's the best bargain. :-D

That gives you nine players at 25 if my math is correct. :-D You've got a lot of young cheap talent, so that should allow you to spend a little more to fill in the holes you have. ;-D

I agree with Pogo. If you have plenty of cap room these would be the players I would keep.

If you count holds, you might want to keep a BJ Ryan or two, too.
