MI to keep for cutdown WHIR

Postby Phillip » Wed Oct 27, 2010 2:02 pm

10 team keeper league 6X6 (OPS and Holds) we cut to 12 this weekend and then to 7-10 in February. 2 C, 1B, 3B, CI, 2B, SS, MI, 5 OF, 9 P.

Should I put Alexei Ramirez or Kelly Johnson on my 12 list. Neither is likely to make the cut to 10 and I have a 2B and SS ahead of each of them (although the SS is Andrus and he is a bit more questionable).

Secondary question: If Carlos Zambrano is in the mix how do the three rate. Would you keep one of the MIs and Zambrano or both MIs? (Again this is more of a question for the 11th and 12th spots, rather than a top 10 spot that would be kept in Feb.)

Big Z shouldn't be in the discussion. Alexei over KJ

Alexei and KJ are solid value picks (plus give you some depth, if all you got to choose is between them and big z keep your productive MIs) Perfect trade bait. I have a feeling you'd get a little upgrade somewhere with them than a Zambrano trade, unless you are in a league with a hardcore Cubs fan and even then I'm not so sure...

Yeah, if you have any doubts, just to reaffirm Alexei over Johnson.

I think Johnson will be better next year, but I think there is a perception that Ramirez is more valuable, making him slightly easier to trade. I'd pass on Zambrano.
