Last Keeper help....whir

17 posts in this topic

I'm in a 7x7 H2H 12 team keeper, we start the typical hitting lineup along with 5SP and 5RP.  We keep 10 players.

 

Assuming I can't make a deal to upgrade keepers which ten among the following would you keep.

 

Here are my keepers.  Really debating if I roll the dice and hope Sano cuts down on the K's and improves his BA or keep Lucroy at C?

 

2B Jose Altuve

SS Francisco Lindor

2B/SS/3B Jonathan Villar

OF Charlie Blackmon

OF JD Martinez

OF Starling Marte

SP Jake Arrieta

SP Madison Bumgarner

RP Aroldis Chapman (since we start 5 rp, I think his value goes up as a keeper who can help in multiple pitching categories).

 

any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

Are there any catchers that you think will be available? Sanchez? Contreras? Gattis?

 

I'm not a big believer of Sano figuring it out, but I'm not high on keeping any catchers (unless its posey or sanchez). If you think there is a solid chance of getting a decent catcher then keep the higher upside guy in Sano and try to get that C slot filled through the draft. If you know Lucroy is the best you'll have then keep him.

thanks for the response.  We have a minor league farm system (less than 400ab) so all of the top prospects are gone.  Lucroy will certainly be the best available in the draft.

 

I keep going back and forth between the two.

I'm not big on keeping catchers, nor am I big on positional scarcity drafting.  But, in this case, Lucroy is likely quite a bit superior than whomever you're going to replace him with and 3B is so deep, Sano is borderline startable in a 12 team league.  I assume you could dump Sano and replace him with a Justin Turner or Maikel Franco type guy and be no worse for wear.

Keep LuCroy, then deal Arrieta/Bum/Chapman for three elite bats. You can get just about anyone for them.

Why can you get anybody for them....because they are valuable?  You can say it, come on.

Not sure as to why I'd trade my 3 pitchers?  My only need would be 1B along with the rest of my pitching staff.  I'm assuming I'm missing the sarcasm or something.

Yea, I wouldnt do that at all. He has enough elite bats. Why give up the elite pitching?

If one of those 7 hitting categories is OBP then definitely Sano.  The only thing your team is light on is power.

not sure with his high k rate his OBP would be any better than Lucroys.  Better power for sure but takes a dip in BA and RBI.

 

didnt mention this but I've got Schwarber in my minors (still under 400ab) so I will have his power at the UTL and Villar will play 3B.  If I keep Sano, someone will have to sit and I'll need to draft a C.

His K rate doesn't really influence his OBP enough to be a concern there imho. 

 

If Sano hits between .240-250 he's already close in OBP to Lucroy.  It's a keeper league.  Always invest in guys with top 20 potential.  

 

I don't think filling C is that important in a HTH league with extra categories.

And the site has a great feature that allows you to ignore certain users so you don't have to see their posts.  Highly recommend using it.
