Im in a league on CBS first year in a keeper league, I won the league last year in regular draft and now I am sitting with a few questions with my team.
A little information about the league
Offense is: C, 1b, 2b, SS, 3b, RF, CF, LF, UTIL
Pitching is all P's but you really have to be careful with who you throw out because L's (-5) Hits(-.25) ER (-1) and BB (-.5).
Its a points league that plays head to head each week with lineup locked at first game played on Monday. No Caps for amount of starts thrown out and also Saves and Wins are 7 Points with a Quality Start 3 points.
So with all the information about my team let me explain my situation:
I have the last pick in every round for winning the league and my keepers and positions are as follows(we can keep 8):
Tulo (SS- Col)
Cano (2b- NYY)
Beltre (3b- Tex)
Carlos Gonzalez (LF, CF, RF,- Col)
Jimenez (SP- Col)
Buchholz (SP- Bos)
Matt Cain (SP- SF)
The rest of my team is:
James Shields (SP-TB)
Elvis Andrus (SS- Tex)
Brett Anderson (SP- Oak)
Paul Konerko (1b CHW)
Ortiz (Util- Bos)
Gio Gonzalez (SP- Oak)
Wandy Rodriguez (SP- Hou)
Justin Smoak (1b- Sea)
Lars Anderson (1b- Bos)
Brandon Allen (1b, LF-Ari)
Tyler Flowers (C- CHW)
Thomas Diamond (SP/RP- CHC)
Now to further complicate things rule 5 players that are no protected in the minor leagues but to rule 5 someone you have to A) Give up your 1st round pick and B) Keep that player, and a player I know for sure that is not going to be protected is Carlos Santana.
So I can either try and rule 5 Santana and give up my 1st round pick or stick with one of the questionable guys I have
My Picks: I have the 12th in every round the draft but the 5th and 6th rounds but I also have an extra 2nd round pick which is the 5th pick in that round.
Finally last part of my statement, I have been offered a trade of Cano or Tulo (one not both) and Brett Anderson for Oswalt and Buster Posey or Justin Upton (one not both). What would u do this how would u modify it or what else would you look for.
Thanks for the insight a lot of build up with this draft and trying to decide what I can do should do or what to do so I wanted to leave the floor open for thoughts, also if you need any more information please let me know Ill be happy to answer any questions because honestly the more insight to this the better
