General Message Board
10 Keepers, 5x5 10 team league:
1B: Morneau, Miguel Cabrera
SS: Tulowitzki, Alexei Ramirez
3B: Chipper Jones
OF: Carlos Lee, S. Choo, Matt Holliday, D.Span, Juan Rivera
SP: Linecum, Lackey, Gallardo, Hamels, Garza
RP: Street, Hoffman, R. Soriano, Jenks
McCann - Shallow position and he's young and amazing
Miguel - Still young and a first round pick easy
Tulowitzki - Young and has a great power/speed combo
Holliday - Hitting behind Pujols, 'nuff said.
Lincecum - Best pitcher in the league
Gallardo - Future ace of a pretty good team, great strikeout potential
Others that you should keep:
Huston Street - very good closer on a good team
Alexei Ramirez - 2B eligibility which is important, power and speed combo
Hamels - On a very good team and will bounce back and be great
Garza - is maturing every year and is becoming great
Reasons against others:
Morneau: you already have cabrera so you don't need Morneau
Chipper - old and on the decline
Carlos Lee- on a bad team and is also slowly declining
Choo - nothing very special. he's good but not better than other keepers.
Span - fast and might be great. you might take him over Ramirez.
Juan Rivera - not good at all. he is unproven and probably shouldn't be on any teams in a 10 team league
Lackey - high ERA, fairly low strikeout rate
Hoffman - ancient
Soriano - could be better than Street but Street is still a safer pick
Jenks - not in great shape and not on a great team
Not to brag, but I'd trust my opinions about these types of things.
McCann, Morneau, Miggy Cabrera, Tulowitzki, Choo, Holliday, Lincecum, Gallardo, Lackey and Lee... That being said, you are a 2 year repeat winner. You shouldn't need any help. I think you were just bragging on how good your team is/was. :-)
