Help pick my 5 keepers...WHIR!

Postby onitapgr » Fri Sep 02, 2011 7:20 pm

12 team 6x6 Roto (standard + OPS and K/BB) -- We keep any 5 players indefinitely (they replace your 1st 5 picks; keep less than 5, and get a pick in 5th round, 4th round, etc...)

We play C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, MI, CI, 4 OF, UTIL, 2 SP, 2 RP, 4 P, 5 BN

I am definitely keeping these 2...

OF Justin Upton (Ari - OF)
OF Ryan Braun (Mil - OF)

Who should be my other 3 keepers?

1B Paul Konerko (CWS - 1B)
2B Dan Uggla (Atl - 2B)
3B Alex Rodriguez (NYY - 3B)
3B Kevin Youkilis (Bos - 1B,3B) DL
OF Ichiro Suzuki (Sea - OF)
OF Carl Crawford (Bos - OF)

SP Jordan Zimmermann (Was - SP)
SP Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP) DL

That's really tough. I'd say strasburg and Crawford. After that it's a toss up Bren arod, Konerko and Uggla.

I don't think you'd miss out on much only keeping 4 of these. You'd probably get a much younger guy that should have just as good a '12 and better longterm value. Crawford & SS if he has zero setbacks

OF Justin Upton (Ari - OF)
OF Ryan Braun (Mil - OF)
SP Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP) DL
OF Carl Crawford (Bos - OF)
3B Kevin Youkilis (Bos - 1B,3B) DL
---------------------------------------------------------------
2B Dan Uggla (Atl - 2B)
3B Alex Rodriguez (NYY - 3B)
1B Paul Konerko (CWS - 1B)
OF Ichiro Suzuki (Sea - OF)

I would put Strasburg in the definitely keep category, especially if he is solid in his return.

As for the other two slots, that's tough. I would eliminate Zimmermann right away. He's a solid player, but you can get pitchers as valuable as him in the draft next year. I think Crawford has the most potential out of the rest of that group, and he's still relatively young. I wouldn't want to keep Ichiro or Konerko or probably not even Arod. So my choice came down between Uggla and Youkilis. I would take Youkilis from those two.

I'd probably go:

Braun
Upton
Crawford
Strasburg
then either Youkilis or Rodriguez

I'd probably lean towards Youkilis, but I think it's really a toss up depending on health.

OF Justin Upton (Ari - OF)
OF Ryan Braun (Mil - OF)
SP Stephen Strasburg (Was - SP) DL (If he is healthy)
Carl Crawford (Bos - OF)
The fifth spot is a tossup between Kevin Youkilis (Bos - 1B,3B) and 2B Dan Uggla (Atl - 2B)

My preference is for Youk so if it were me I would take him, but Upton, Braun, Strasburg, and Crawford are definite keepers.
