Drop Taveras in Keeper?! HELP! WHIR

Postby thebearproooffsuit » Sun Sep 01, 2013 1:52 am

In the first year of a 14 team H2H limited keeper league, with only four keepers. Also, keepers can only be kept for three years max so prospects are devalued.

Keeper salary increases by $1 or 10% per year, which ever is more.

Here are my potential keepers, in rough order of how I'm ranking them as keeper values, based on the 2014 salaries listed below.

4 keepers:

Hanley Ramirez : $15
Carlos Gomez: $10
Curtis Granderson $11
Matt Carpentar: $5

Under consideration:
Kyle Seager $6
Yu Darvish $25

Have keepr value but don't make the cut:
Adam Wainwright $25
Oscar Taveras $2
Anibal Sanchez $7
M. Cuddyer $9
Kenley Jansen $9
T. Walker $2
A. Bradley $1
M. Wacha $1
C. Martinez (P) $2
JJ Hardy $6

Seems crazy to cut a $2 Taveras, but I can't envision a scenario in which he's in the top four of this list, especially once i factor in there are only two years left for all these guys as keepers. Don't have to name keepers till late spring training, but I might be able to use Taveras's roster spot in my H2H playoffs, in which i am the #2 seed.

My inclination is to cut Taveras and try to use his roster spot to win this year.....but wanted to get some other opinions.

Also if you think i should switch any of my top 4 keepers let me know.....going to be hard to cut darvish and seager.....

I like this set best, saves you 5 bucks and really minimizes your risk involving health and regresion. What concerns me the most is Carp's ability to repeat this season....which I don't think he will.

Darvish is a hard cut a top 3 arm for under 30 bucks seems reasonable.
