Keeper advice...

Postby SecretAgentMan » Mon Mar 18, 2013 2:18 am

5x5 Roto, 10 team, keep any 6. 13/9 lineups (2 C). Came in 2nd last year so I have the 9th pick overall.

I have to pick 6 from this list essentially:
Kershaw, Cain, Weaver, Sale, Pedroia, Wright, R. Zimmerman, Craig, Zobrist (also have Cueto and Kipnis but I do not see them as beating out the others).


Right now I am thinking that Kershaw, Cain, Weaver and Pedroia are pretty much sure things. Debating the final 2 slots between Wright, R. Zimmerman, Craig and Zobrist. Opinions.

I am working on a trying to pull off a deal, but it is a prety trade hostile league. I was thinking of maybe offering some combo of the latter 4 for Josh Hamilton to one owner and seeing what he thought.

Gee I do not get all the disklike of Weaver. What is not too like? Why keep a mediocre player like Zobrist or a walking injury risk in Zimmerman over him? I can certainly see Wright over Weaver, but the injury muddies that a bit. You can make the case for Craig as well, but he does not have the track record.

Other than the one outlier year in 2010 his K rate has been mediocre and his ERA has been helped substantially by low BABIPs and high LOB%. His peripherals don't match his ERA, last year was one of the worst years of his career, and he's on the wrong side of 30. He's my 19th ranked SP and I honestly don't think there is anything but downside where he's being taken.

No way I'd keep Craig over Zimmerman. Kershaw/Cain for the arms and Pedroia/Wright/Zobrist/Zimm for the bats.
