Which 5 keepers to keep?

Postby fcolich » Thu Dec 27, 2012 3:07 am

2013 will be year 2 out of 3 for a keeper league. Last year I was in 2nd to 3rd place through August, and then the floor dropped out and I fell to 6th place with 69 points. We get to keep 5 players (plus our ML slot). I am going with Braun, McCutchen, Kinsler, Castro and A-Jax (ranked in that order).

Do you agree with keeping A-Jax? I was toying with keeping Pablo instead as he ran out of hands to break and may play a full season.

Also, I recently traded Jay Bruce for Starlin Castro. I feel that I got the better deal, but both players are pretty close. Wondering what you would do with these league settings.

Here is my league/team info:

Roto - typical 5X5 - 12 teams
Positions below (Position - # of slots)
C - Matt Wieters
1B - Paul Konerko
2B - Ian Kinsler
3B - Pablo Sandoval
SS - Starlin Castro
MI - Josh Rutledge
CI - Ike davis
OF - Ryan Braun, Andrew McCutchen, Austin Jackson, Josh Willingham
U - Rajai Davis
ML - Wil Myers
P - Homer Bailer, AJ Griffin, Joel Hanrahan, Steve Cishek, Jeremy Hellickson, Ryan Vogelson, Huston Street, Addison Reed

For 2013 I would rather have had Bruce, but we're talking the difference of about a round or two. Castro is good and should continue to be great, but people are expecting a huge breakout in the power dept. way too early. His caught stealing is also alarming. I am also partial to the power Bruce brings to the table, and paired with Braun and McCutchen it would have been an insane outfield.

I think I would keep Konerko before I kept Jackson. It sounds like there is only this year and next for the league and Konerko will provide your team with some pop you lost by dealing Bruce and keep you in the top tier of BA.

I'd go with Sandoval myself over Jackson. You've got 2 top OF's already so locking up one of the top 3B is they way I'd go.
