Rate my keepers?

Postby KSChris » Sat Jan 05, 2013 12:22 pm

16 team league
R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, CG, W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP

Keeper price increases every year of:
$1-9: $2
$10-19: $3
$20+: $4

10 keepers per team

Had a lot of expensive keepers after the last four years, so I decided to rebuild keeper-wise and acquired cheap talent. I've narrowed my list down to these ten, with the price increases included

$17 Adrian Gonzalez
$3 Jason Kipnis
$3 Brett Lawrie
$11 Alcides Escobar
$3 Wil Myers
$4 David Ortiz
$25 Felix Hernandez
$14 Ian Kennedy
$3 Madison Bumgarner
$3 Kris Medlen

$86 total, out of a $260 draft budget.

Thoughts?

I've also got the following options available as replacements if need be:

Starling Marte $3
Adam Jones $32
Yadier Molina $28

I'd have to consider swapping Marte & Escobar just based on value. Those 11 should make up your final 10 and theres nothing wrong w/ the ten you have listed. I like where Marte is headed and Escobar might have a tough time repeating his '12

I'll echo the above comments. Keep Marte over Escobar.

I think I agree here. Love Adjo, I see the same #s this year as last.
I like Escobar and Kennedy, But Jones and Marte for the extra $10 for me.

I'm withi this. Escobar for Marte. With Medlen, King Felix and Bumgarner locked into good contracts, I would rather overpay a little but for the bat in Jones than pay what appears to be at least top dollar or a slight overpay for Ian Kennedy who would be your 4th starter.

I like Jones. But he had a career year, and at $32, that's a bit of an overpay for no guarantee he repeats. I could probably get him for that much in the Draft.
