Need help with 5 keepers WHIR

Postby BravesGuy » Wed Nov 24, 2010 3:50 pm

Hey guys. I finally took home 1st place in 2010 with my keeper team! :-D I've been in the league since 2006.

Anyways, I am looking ahead to the 2011 season and I want to see who you guys think I should keep. We keep 5 players each year and I've put the Round # next to the players name. We will lose that Round pick in the 2011 draft if I keep the player.

I was able to pick up some great player as free agents so they are great value picks. I know I'm keeping Pujols. What about the other 4?

12 team Keeper Head 2 Head, 6x6 (OPS and BAA)

Pierzynski, A.J. C CHW - Round 22 :-L
Pujols, Albert 1B STL - Round 1 ;-D
Uggla, Dan 2B ATL - Round 7
Zimmerman, Ryan 3B WAS - Round 3
Drew, Stephen SS ARI - Round 22
Braun, Ryan LF MIL - Round 3
Bruce, Jay RF CIN - Round 12
Suzuki, Ichiro RF SEA - Round 3
Lee, Derrek 1B ATL - Round 22
Tejada, Miguel 3B SD - Round 22
Lind, Adam DH TOR - Round 22
Zobrist, Ben OF TB - Round 4 :~(
LaRoche, Adam 1B ARI - Round 22
Morneau, Justin 1B MIN - Round 2

Anderson, Brett SP OAK - Round 10
Buchholz, Clay SP BOS - Round 14
Garza, Matt SP TB - Round 8
Greinke, Zack SP KC - Round 5
Marcum, Shaun SP TOR - Round 22
Rivera, Mariano RP NYY - Round 4 :-t
Sanchez, Jonathan SP SF - Round 20
Capps, Matt RP MIN - Round 22
Danks, John SP CHW - Round 13
Nolasco, Ricky SP FLA - Round 11 :-P

Leave a link and I will help you out. Thanks!

Braun in the 3rd and Buchholz in the 14th is good value.

After that it it gets tougher. I like Grienke but in the 5th, I'm not sure you are getting much out of this. If he gets traded, then maybe but for now I would let him go. Bruce in the 12th is tempting. Lind in the 22nd and Sanchez in the 20th could be steals. If you keep Zimmerman will it cost you a 2nd or a 4th?

So I guess I would do

Braun
Buchholz
Bruce
Sanchez
Zimmerman/Grienke

The B's stuck out to me too, Zimmerman in the 3rd isn't a great value but he'd round out my 5

Ok Pujols and Braun are obvious so I wont bother explaining those.
Uggla and Bruce will be bargins this year at those rounds so you will be stealing them in my opinion. The last one for me is between Zimmerman, Buchholz....i would lean towards Buchholz and just draft Zimmerman in the 3rd or 4th round.

Help me out if you dont mind...

Pujols, Albert 1B STL - Round 1
Braun, Ryan LF MIL - Round 3
Zimmerman, Ryan 3B WAS - Round 3
Bruce, Jay RF CIN - Round 12

I'd struggle mightily deciding between Uggla, Buchholz or Lind for the last spot. I'd end up going with Lind probably just because the value gain could be the highest by far.

Pujols
Braun (1st round value in 3rd)
Uggla (4th or 5th round at 7th)
Buchholz (6th or 7th round at 14th)
J.Sanchez (maybe 12th to 14th at 20th)

Zimmerman, Grienke and Bruce would be good picks too, but didn't seem to offer quite as much value.

Congrats!

Here's who I'd keep:

Pujols, Albert 1B STL - Round 1
Uggla, Dan 2B ATL - Round 7
Braun, Ryan LF MIL - Round 3
Buchholz, Clay SP BOS - Round 14
Greinke, Zack SP KC - Round 5

Although I like Sanchez in Round 20.
