Advice On Which 4 keepers

#1 Post by RandyKutcherHair » March 17th, 2017, 8:27 am

Looking for some keeper advice. This is a 10 team mixed CBS Head to Head league. I can keep 1 hitter, 1 pitcher and 2 flex spots (hitter or pitcher). Given my roster, I am leaning towards 3 hitters and 1 pitcher; but having a hard time narrowing them down.

I listed full roster and scoring system below. For the hitters I am choosing between Encarnacion, Altuve, Bregman, Correa, & Turner. For the pitchers I am choosing between Hill, Kluber, and Greinke. Thoughts and/ or advice?

Russell Martin C | TOR
Edwin Encarnacion 1B | CLE
Jose Altuve 2B | HOU
Alex Bregman 3B | HOU
Carlos Correa SS | HOU
Yoenis Cespedes OF | NYM
Carlos Gonzalez OF | COL
Trea Turner OF | WAS
Carlos Santana U | CLE
Miguel Sano 3B | MIN
Aaron Judge OF | NYY
Kendrys Morales U | TOR

Andrew Cashner SP | TEX
Jose De Leon SP | TB
Rich Hill SP | LAD
Corey Kluber SP | CLE
Ivan Nova SP | PIT
Marcus Stroman SP | TOR
Zach Britton RP | BAL
Zack Greinke SP | ARI
Wily Peralta SP | MIL
Carlos Rodon SP | CHW
Julio Teheran SP | ATL
Francisco Rodriguez RP | DET
David Phelps RP,SP | MIA

Scoring system below:
1B Singles 1 point
2B Doubles 2 points
3B Triples 3 points
BB Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS Caught Stealing -1 point
CYC Hitting for the Cycle 10 points
GSHR Grand Slam Home Runs 10 points

Altuve, Correa, Turner and Britton. Greinke doesn't seem to like the hitter friendly confines in Arizona as much as he liked LA, Hill is an older Gio Gonzalez - he gets hurt a lot and if the curve is not working? uh oh. And Kluber? I can't see him matching last year, much less bettering it ... let's face it ...who does except Kershaw ... and even he's no guarantee ... whereas I can see Britton matching his 2016 season.
These are my views based on my own opinions and observations - your mileage may vary.
