Keeper input por favor

Postby Nats 2013 » Mon Feb 18, 2013 8:42 pm

In a 8-team 7x7 h2h each category. The 2 additional bat cats are walks and total bases. We are required to keep 4. the first 3 keepers im pretty set on in Pujols, Votto, and Trout. Choose a fourth out of Joey Bats, HanRam, Kinsler, or Beltre. I'm trying to trade Pujols for Cano, so its a good chance Cano will be in the original 3 keepers instead. Hamels is on the roster but he is not a keeper option IMO. Any Input would be appreciated.

I would go either Joey Bats or Beltre. Depends how you feel about Joey Bats wrist.

I am not a big fan of HanRam, and Kinsler is to much of an injury risk to me.

Please Help. http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=454749

Wow, tough call. 4 great players....but all have some red flags:

Beltre: getting older and reaching the age where stats can drop quickly
Bautista: is coming off injury
Kinsler: Plays scarce position, but average has been down around .250 for a few years now and big drop in HR's last year
HanRam: Biggest injury risk.....he just scares me even though might have highest ceiling, at least when factoring he plays SS


There is really no easy answer....all have risk and reward.

I would go with Bautista just slightly ahead of Beltre.....since right now i trust Bat's health more than Beltre's age.

I wish I could recommend one of the middle infielders, but health issues and declining stats just scare me too much.......but I couldn't blame you if your rolled the dice with HanRam to fill a scarce position.


Still, my official recommendation: Jose Bautista!


Help with mine?

I'd go with Votto/Joey Bats/Han-Ram/Trout/Cano that's just sick.

Thanks for the help Nats. Ok you have a nice problem. I would go with JBats as well, but with a thought for you to consider. You should evaluate the worst team in the league and see if you can get a big trade! Like M Cab and give him 3 keeper if you have to such as Votto, Kinsler, Hanley. You have the keepers to upgrade and I think you can get a top guy if they are on a team with medicre options.

I like that idea with all the good players this guy has, try to trade...bats, beltre and kinsler....and ya see if u could land a braun or miggy, and i would still deal pujols for cano....ohhhhh those would be some stupid rediculas :-t ...keepers....goodluck

It's a tough one but I think I go with Joey Bats unless you are a true believer (I am) that HanRam is gonna have a sick year with his new stacked lineup
