So I thought at the end of last season I knew exactly who my keepers were. Now I unsure of my last keeper.
9-team league, we keep 5 and 3 prospects. We can keep guys a total of 2 times (3 years max on our team). My prospects are Stanton, Lawrie, and Jennings.
My first 4 keepers are J. Upton, Ellsbury, McCutchen and Beltre. That leaves 1 spot for Castro or Hosmer. Based on draft status, I should keep Castro. He'll be drafted earlier probably. But I'm big on "best player available" mentality, which is how I got some decent keepers and prospects.
One other complication is that I have the 3rd pick and can choose from whoever is left of Kemp, Cabrera, Pujols and Tulo. If I kept Hosmer and nabbed Tulo I wouldn't need Castro.
Thoughts? 100% WHIR.
