    10 players to keep...GREAT OFFENSE, but mediocre pitching... Need help!

    Hey guys,

    10 teams, 5 x 5 league with 10 players to keep for the following season.
    I have an impressive group of hitters, but I have no idea about who to keep.

    So here is my roster (from last season)

    C: J. Mauer, B. McCann
    1B: M. Teixeria, J. Morneau
    2B: I. Kinsler
    3B: C. Jones (ATL)
    SS: H. Ramirez
    OF: C. Lee, A. Soriano, I. Suzuki, R. Winn
    Util: T. Wigginton

    SP: C.C. Sabathia, D. Lowe, A, Harang, B. Myers, M. Garza, J. Johnson, K. Lohse

    RP: J. Nathan, B. Jenks, J. Soria


    So here was my potential list of 10 players:
    C: ONE OF Mauer/McCann (cant decide)
    1B: Teixeria, Morneau
    2B: Kinsler
    3B: C. Jones
    SS: Ramirez
    OF: Soriano, C. Lee (No Ichiro)

    SP: Sabathia
    P: Nathan OR Lowe

    Please help me out! Thanks!

    • I think you're close on your initial list of 10. Your catcher is really preference. I'd take Mauer's consistent bat and run/RBI totals over McCann's power. Definitely Nathan over D-Lowe. There aren't a ton of rock-solid closers; but there are plenty of mid-30s B- pitchers. And I would drop Chipper for Ichiro. Ichiro's "down year" in '08 was still .311/100runs/40SB. I'll take those numbers (with a ceiling near .350/120/45) over Chipper's old legs, who's missed 157 games (a whole season's worth) over the last 4 years...

    • Here's my 2 cents!

      C: B. McCann
      1B: M. Teixeria, J. Morneau
      2B: I. Kinsler
      3B: C. Jones (ATL)
      SS: H. Ramirez
      OF: C. Lee, A. Soriano,
      Util:
      SP: C.C. Sabathia,
      RP: J. Nathan

      Ichiro is a hard cut, but so is Soria. He's got wicked stats and is a good numbers closer, To bad the saves just aren't huge there w/ the Royals. I'd even keep Ichiro and Soria over Lowe for some reason. I'm just not a Lowe fan:( That arm is ready to fall off...lol
      oh, and McCann is a STUD in the making!!

      Good Luck!
