Keep 4

7 posts in this topic

I need to keep 4 players out of these players.

Joey Bats

Billy Butler

BJ Upton

Chase Headley

Brandon Phillips

Adam Jones

I have to keep 5 players but I have Trout and he is a given. Please let me know the other 4 you would keep and why.

Bautista - potential outweighs risk

Jones - in line for monster year

Butler -consistently steady performer

Philips - position scarcity, steady option

frankly, i just don't trust upton....and am not a believer in headley.

That's who I would go with as well. I never really cared for Upton for some reason, and Headley, are you sure he can repeat what he did? I just don't buy it.

Sorry it is h2h 5x5 12 team league keep 7 players 2 of the 7 have to be pitchers.

I had Trout, Joey Bats, Phillips, and Jones but I was just having trouble filling out the last spot.

I think Headley if he can give me 20/20 from that 3B spot that is still good enough to be a very good 3B option when I am not sure with all the other 3B being kept who might be avaliable in the draft at that postion. 1B might be a little deeper.

Also my first pick in this draft is #49. I traded my first 3 picks in season last year.

I think I have ruled out Upton as well.

Upton over Jones for a couple of reasons.

Jones hits a lot of ground balls, does not have near the opportunity to steal bases, walks just as infrequently as BJ, and we saw a 2nd half decline in frequency both of fly balls and balls leaving the yard, protending a cap on his power.

Upton has shown an uptend the last 3 years in both fly balls and home runs per fly ball, with a really fabulous power profile in the 2H of 2012. Add in getting out of the Trop and he has difinite 30+ HR potential. He's absolutely going to steal 30 bags no matter where he hits in the lineup, and if he hits in the 2 hole he'll see lots of fastballs. Yes he has an expected BA range of like .245-250, but he'll match Jones inevery other category and double Jones' steals. I'll trade 15 hits to get 15 steals every time.
