    Tough Keeper Question

    5th year of 12 team h2h keeper league. Finished 2nd, 1st, 3rd and 5th previous 4 seasons. Team is aging and I'm having trouble deciding who to keep. Must keep 5 players. Can keep up to 12. Must keep minimum of 2 position players and 2 pitchers. Can keep no more than 8 position players or 8 pitchers. (K) beside name represents who I think I'll keep. Looking for opinions/recommendations.

    C - Yadier Molina
    1B - Paul Konerko (K)
    2B - Ian Kinsler (K)
    3B - Ryan Zimmerman (K)
    SS - Luis Cruz
    CI - Corey Hart (K)
    MI - Kyle Seager
    OF - Alfonso Soriano (K)
    OF - Michael Morse (K)
    OF - Norichika Aoki
    OF - Alejandro De Aza
    UTIL - David Ortiz (K)
    UTIL - Cody Ross
    BN - Juan Pierre
    DL - Alex Rodriguez

    SP - Jared Weaver (K)
    SP - Gio Gonzalez (K)
    SP - Johnny Cueto (K)
    RP - Jonathan Papelbon (K)
    RP - Huston Street
    RP - Addison Reed
    P - Ryan Cook
    P - David Hernandez
    P - Tom Wilhelmsen
    BN - C.C. Sabathia (K)
    BN - Tim Hudson
    BN - Ryan Vogelsong
    BN - C.J. Wilson
    BN - Joel Peralta
    BN - Tommy Hanson

    I'm pretty settled on the pitchers I'll be keeping. I'm really debating on some of the bats. I'm wondering if it's worth keeping Konerko and Ortiz over Molina. Morse also worries me going to Seattle. I know his potential is high, but what effect will Seattle have on him? If I cut out some of the hitters, I'll be able to draft a round earlier for each one I don't keep. (If I only keep 9 players, I'll start drafting in the 10th round of the draft). I might be able to get some younger bats that will put up the same numbers. Thoughts? Anyone?

    • I really think it would benefit to keep Molina only because catchers like him are hard to come by imo...maybe you shouldn't keep Hart because I don't think he's valuable enough to justify keeping him but I could just be underestimating him. I agree with what you said about Morse as we know what he's capable of but will he be able to do well in Seattle? Whatever you do, I strongly suggest trying to keep Yadier but other than that, your keepers seem solid.

      Can you please answer my question about sleepers and busts this year? Thanks!

    • I might be in the minority but id only keep 6 total and take the draft picks- Remember in a format like this you can always re-draft players youve dropped and seeing as there all old i dont think theyd draw huge interest early when teams are goin young. Id keep kinsler zimmerman and Molina only on off and just weaver gio and cueto on the sp side- Thats it, and draft well, and seeing how theres 7 bn and h2h id target Taveras very very early for this team that has no OF or speed as is-----
