6x6 scoring - additional categories are K's for hitters and Losses for pitchers


Pick 4 keepers out of the following:
Miguel Cabrera(obvious)
Tulo
Justin Upton
Posey
Harper
Kinsler
R. Zimmerman
Bumgarner
Wainwright



My guts tellin me the first 4. I hate letting Harper go though. But I have 5th pick. 40 players total will be off the board for the draft. You can keep players forever too. What do you think?

Any way to make a deal? Because I'd hate to part with any of those.
As much as i'd hate to do it, i'd probably let Upton go. I couldn't part with Harper, Posey, Tulo, or Cabrera. Upton would be insanely tough to give up as well, but i think I'm taking Haper's ceiling over Upton's.

I'd keep both Upton and Harper along with Cabrera and Posey. It's definitely between the top 5 guys. I just have no faith left in Tulo. I was burned by him a few years back and thought I was getting a good deal last year, so I took him again and was burned again. I actually like Upton and Harper both more than Tulo this year anyway. Upton should be motivated to show Arizona what they got rid of and Harper is a tremendous talent that is now in one of the top lineups.

I think I would go with Upton Harper Cabrera and Posey as well. It'd be tough to give up Tulo, but his injuries have become a big concern.

In this format Miggy, Harper & Posey are locks, it's Tulo or Upton to me. I'm currently drafting Tulo first, but with your Keeper settings, I think Upton has more value being 3 years younger. There's a decent amount of depth at SS at the top end (gets nasty late, but you can find someone solid in the first 10 rounds).

Mocks are irrelevant to your team and are usually not Keeper formats. If every mock had Ryan Zimmerman in the first round, would you keep him instead? He's basically the Tulo of 3B -- solid Avg, solid Power, but can't stay healthy. Tulo is a stud when healthy, but can't stay healthy -- even when his game totals are high, he's been playing a hurt a lot and it's crushing his numbers -- he turns 29 at the end of the season, I really don't see him staying healthy and putting up numbers for that much longer -- he couldn't stay healthy at 25-27, what would make you think he will at 28-30?

Cabrera, Harper (think a young Braun minus the average - don't ever drop), Upton (although I understand position scarcity with Posey), and Tulo (even though he's an injury risk). Tulo gives you every category H2H against Posey (close in average) and you could always get Posey back if you really wanted him early. With Upton over Posey, Miggy and Tulo will hold your average up enough that Posey is expendable. Upton gives you a huge advantage in steals and runs. Posey K's way less, but Upton's average isn't chop liver. Granted the position scarcity plays a factor, but you will be able to get Posey back early IMO if you're really freaked out about the catcher position.

What no Bumgarner love? Cabrera Harper Posey are must-keep. In your forever format a case could be made for Bumgarner, but J-Up works too. The decision is between these 2. If you know your league mates and their tendencies, like SP's are overvalued or there are more Braves fans, drop the one you're most likely to get back in the draft. Otherwise go with your gut.

NO WAY you drop Harper if you can keep a player forever.

Cabrera, Tulo, Posey, Harper for me. Upton has been more hype than results lately. Not sure a move to Atlanta is going to help!

Cabrera and Posey jump out at me first. After that, considering it is a "forever keeper", you have to do Harper and then I'd probably lean towards Tulo but he just can't seem to put togehter a full healthy season though. I guess the question is, do you think there is a chance to redraft any of those guys with the 5th pick?

Thanks for the replies...

I'm still pondering who I should keep every single day.

My latest is Miggy, Upton, Harper, Posey. I have 5th pick and I'm pretty sure this one guy in my league isn't keeping Hanley. If I throw back Tulo, that means Tulo and Hanley have a chance of falling to me at #5.

Does this sound smart?

I would go with Miggy/Posey/Harper/Tulo

Tulo is a high risk high reward player.

Keep the top 5 minus Tulo. He's really the only one that has a serious question mark. I'd hate to keep Tulo over Upton or Harper and they become studs for a long time and Tulo gets injured. I can deal with Tulo being a stud for another team when I have those other 4 guys.

Everyone giving me different opinions.


Looks like its down to Tulo vs. Posey. I hate this decision. Leaning towards cutting Tulo loose.

Keeping Posey over Tulo makes more sense for several reasons. His stats at catcher are simply more valuable because they are from a catcher. The Giants are focused on Posey's health and give him days at 1B to help avoid wear and tear. Tulo has never played a full season. Health is a skill and he simply doesn't own it. Posey has twice in 3 years finished the season. And by your own admission a Tulo-type player should fall to you in the draft. Keep Posey.

Tulo, Upton, Harper, Cabrera... you'd draft all 4 of them before Posey so it's an easy decision.
