Who to keep

Postby goods5119 » Tue Jan 23, 2018 3:58 pm

Long term 5x5 keeper league. No conditions for keeping guys, just keep the five best. Here are my options...

Obvious locks
Trout
Goldschmidt
Kershaw

Contenders for the last two spots
Daniel Murphy
Josh Donaldson
Jose Ramirez
Anthony Rendon
Stephen Strasburg
Robbie Ray
The Rotting Corpse of Miguel Cabrera

Which two of those guys would you keep?

I love your 1st 3! I'd probably have to go with Murphy and Ramirez for the last two. I like the rest of your choices. Yes, even "The Rotting Corpse of Miguel Cabrera" but not enough to use a keeper for him. Donaldson would be the other one I would seriously think of keeping over Murphy.

Ramirez/Strasburg .. if you really prefer to keep a hitter than it's Donaldson; They're all old enough where you won't be losing a long-term keeper.

Any chance in trading whichever you don't keep for a draft pick?

Strasburg hasn't been able to put in a full season. Too much risk for me to think of with other better options
