Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
12-team H2H Keeper League. Big $100 league...
Here's my roster:
(Only two worth mentioning when it came to my pitching staff)
Please help me!
The Grandy Man Can
Jay Bruce (added advantage now you have no OF worries)
Problem: Everyone will keep their Power 1Bs and you MUST HAVE a power 1B. I didnt choose Encarnacion because he usually hits 15-20HRs. Last year was rare so unless he's on the juice....
Perhaps Goldschmidt instead of Castro?

I'm keeping Upton & Bruce over Granderson. Don't get me wrong I like what the Grandy man brings to the table but hes only getting older and I love the upside of Bruce since he's only 25. So that would leave me with Encarnacion or Goldschmidt since I strongly believe most of the top-tier first basemen will be kept. So I feel I would need to keep one of these guys.
I assume you have to keep 6. Salvador Perez
Edwin Encarnacion, Adrian Beltre, Starlin Castro (not a real deep position), Jay Bruce, Justin Upton, Clayton Kershaw. Craig and Gold have to show me they can do it again, Grand has too low of a BA, Medlin is tempting, but I feel the others are safer bets. Lot of good Ps should be in the draft.
Then draft a P on your fist pick.

Salvador Perez - I like him, but he doesn't even project in the top 10 catchers for this season (according to RotoChamp) so I wouldn't take him over your better hitters.
Edwin Encarnacion - I think he'll regress a bit but not drastically, and he's now in the middle of a crazy lineup.
Rickie Weeks - I have this feeling Weeks may be the next Uggla.
Adrian Beltre - I'd consider him over Encarnacion since I'm suggesting Goldschmidt.
Starlin Castro - not a lot of depth at shortstop, so I'd keep him.
Jay Bruce - he's not even at his prime yet. I'd hold onto him for a while.
Curtis Granderson - he's got power but I'd take Bruce or Upton over him given their younger ages and higher upside.
Justin Upton - I'd consider him over Bruce, but I'm a bit scared off after last season.
Paul Goldschmidt - good balance of power and speed at a position where that's rare and he's very young.
Allen Craig - I like him but not as much as Encarnacion, Bruce, Upton, or Goldschmidt.
Mike Napoli - injury risk (Red Sox got scared off from that big contract).
Ryan Doumit - no.
Clayton Kershaw - no brainer here.
Kris Medlen - I'd keep him just to have the security of another strong pitcher locked in, though I can see going with another hitter (Upton or Beltre) instead.
