In a keeper league H2H Standard 5x5
I can only keep 4 players from last years team
Jason Bartlett (TB - SS)
Jacoby Ellsbury (Bos - LF,CF,RF)
Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B)
Ben Zobrist (TB - 2B,SS,LF,CF,RF)
Brian Roberts (Bal - 2B)
Billy Butler (KC - 1B)
Adam Lind (Tor - LF)
Russell Martin (LAD - C,3B)
Carlos Peña (TB - 1B)
Vernon Wells (Tor - CF)
I really want to keep
1) R Zimmerman 3b
2) Ellsbury OF
my problem is
Zorbest,2b OF, Roberts 2b, Bartlett SS or A Lind OF as my other 2 keepers
+ I have last pick in a 10 team league
any advice ??
lind and roberts- im not gonna be the one who rolls the dice on zobrist or bartlett this year- not saying they wont do good just why chance it when you know roberts is a rock in a good ballpark with a good offence- also linds a monster
Zimmerman, Ellsbury, Zobrist (position),
4th pick I would rather take Butler as I see a very bright future for him, but you could grab him a few rounds later. Keep Roberts, try to trade him right out of the gate or even pre-draft, and then nab Butler a few rounds in.
don't know why everyone is still drinking the kool aid on butler. He's a nice player, a .300 hitter, but his .800 career ops in 1300+ ab's in nothing to write home about. I know, he hit 51 2b's last year, and people are expecting some of thoe 2b to turn into HR, but I just don't see him as a 35-402b 30HR guy.
anyway, zimmerman, ellsbury, lind for sure, I would go with roberts personally but if you wanted to go younger then butler is your guy. I was way wrong on zimmerman last year and regret it, someone tell me why butler is loved so much, did he hit for power in minors? Open to thoughts on when to take butler...
You HAVE to keep Lind. He's only 26 and has tons of upside.
Roberts is 32, Bartlett is 30, and Zobrist is 29....
The choices come down to Zobrist or Roberts. Let's be honest, no point in keeping a guy that had a career year at the age of 29. He went from 1 HR to 15 HR in the same number of ABs. FLUKE!! Generally, when determining keepers you want to get "for sures". Roberts is the only one that qualifies. The only reason I'd consider Zobrist over Roberts is because of the position eligibility. With that said, I'd still keep Roberts....
Lind and Roberts....
P.S. I think Billy Butler, although as of now I would rather Zoz and Roberts, I think he will turn a lot of heads this year. Had a great season last year, but went under the radar because he plays in KC.
