Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I am in a 5 keeper league, auction draft.
I can keep Posey for $5, Carlos Santana for $5, and Alexei Ramirez for $6. I need 2 more keepers, which of the below players/dollar values should I pick?
Mike Stanton $5
Nick Swisher $6
Ryan Zimmerman $24
Ryan Dempster $19
Jaime Garcia $5
Daniel Hudson $5
Jon Lester $30
Nelson Cruz $27
Adrian Gonzalez $31
Omar Infante $5
I'd try to trade Santana, but if you can't get good value definitely hang on to him...as others said, Zimmerman should be a lock as well at that price.
I think the decision is between Gonzo and Stanton, but at this point I'd go with Gonzo.
If there are going to be zero good SS's available in your league, Ramirez at $6 is a steal.
Don't keep 2 catchers. Are you really going to check every lineup 30 minutes before it starts and set your lineup? Otherwise your letting someone whose gonna play 125 games or so take up your dh which should be filled with a 150 gamer. Catcher is the least important position in fantasy baseball. Its great to have Santana or Posey, it gives you an advantage over half the teams out there. But don't be stupid.
Drop Poser or Santana, frankly I'd rather have Santana.
Take Zim, Gonzo (Bos), and Stanton.
You couldn't ask for any better of a core for power which is the most important offensive category.
Zim (3B) for 24$ is a great buy.
Gonzo might flirt with 50 bombs in a friendlier home park with much better lineup.
And Stanton is probably going to hit 35 bombs with a 250 average... for 5$.

Do yourself a favor, and don't listen to this moron. The fact that he suggests you should drop Posey at $5 proves he is developmentally disabled. Keep both. You should hang on to your best valued players regardless of position overlap. That is why they allow trades. I think it's clear if you are going to keep Posey or Santana for $5, the obvious choice is Posey.

So I can use up all 162 games at C plus I am not losing anything as they're both good young hitters that I can keep for cheap. If one gets cold, I can play the other at C, or if I need to slot Posey in at 1B, Santana can be at C.
Just gives good flexibility, options, and both are cheap and can hit.
