It's only November, but Bill James projections just showed up on fangraphs...I can't believe I am already asking for (obviously early) opinions on keepers for 2013.
League: 12 teams, H2H, 9x9 with a sabermetric lean (r,h,rbi,sb,k,bb,obp,slg,fpct / w,k,era,whip,sv,ip,holds,k/9,k/bb)
I've succeeded fairly well the last few years by punting SP for the most part, picking up spare parts to get me through the season. (Capuano, Dickey, Blanton, etc in 2012)
No-brainers are in bold.
SP:Jordan Zimmermann (go pointers!)
RP * 4:(holds makes this position virtually meaningless, as you can pick up many setup guys with better peripherals than most closers very late in the draft.)
I need one from the following list, or more if I bump Kipnis/Granderson/Ramirez from above.
1B/LF Yonder Alonso (might be great long-term, and i hear the fences are coming in, but I've already got a UTIL guy in Ramirez...)
RF Shin Soo Choo (long time keeper for me, in an OBP league, and it pains me to let him go...but he's fading)
RF Carlos Quentin (holy cow, he's already 30?)
SP RA Dickey (can I trust him to be anywhere near 2012?)
SP Tommy Milone (look at his numbers a second time if you don't think he should even be on this list...)
Thanks for your opinions, and yes, I will happily offer help in return.
