4 Keeper Decision

#1 Post by RandyKutcherHair » March 4th, 2013, 10:35 am

In my AL/NL head to head CBS league I need to decide on 4 keepers. We are allowed 1 hitter, 1 pitcher, and 2 wildcards of either. Her is how my top guys breakdown now...

Hitters:
Cano
Longoria
Bautista
Adam Jones
Cespedes

Pitchers:
Darvish
Sale
James Shields
Jarrod Parker
Matt Moore

Right now I am leaning towards keeping 3 hitters and 1 pitcher in Cano, Longoria, Buatista, and Darvish. Tough call to let go,f some f those guys especially Cespedes, Jones and Sale. Do you guys agree with my keepers or would you make a different decision?

Curious if because you are only allowed 4 keepers that all teams have a good four? If not and you can trade I would try and trade one of your pitchers with one of your hitters if you could get Verlander for say one of Sale/Darvish/Shields and Longoria?

BUT I would keep Cespedes over Longoria or Jones - I think he takes another step up over last year which was not a full season of AB

I would say that every team starts out with a strong 4 keepers. For example the guy with Verlander also has King Felix, kemp, and Braun. This makes trading pre keeper list submission difficult.

I made a few calls around the league and found out a few 3b were being kept so I went with Longoria as my 4th keeper. I drew the 2nd pick in our slow draft and plenty of good options to choose from but I have narrowed my choices to Tulo or Harper.

I would keep:
Cano
Bautista
Darvish
Sale

and I would sleep great.

Now you can draft either Longo or Cespedes with the #2 pick, leave Tulo and Harper for the teams that will be chasing you all season.

Thanks ARC. We changed things up a bit and are going with a slow email draft starting this morning so I had already submitted my keepers. Tulo just went #1. That leaves me with a choice between Harper, Bruce, Hamels or Sabathia with the #2 pick.
EDIT: Went with Harper. Hoping to get a top SP in the next round.
