    2012 keepers: Youth Movement for 2013

    I just traded ARod and Brown for Verlander and Blackmon

    League has 9 keepers, and I had no chance of competing this year, or next, so I went into prospecting mode before the season started.

    My team

    C Wieters + J.Montero
    1b Hosmer + Freeman + Morales (DL)
    2b Ackley
    3b Moustakas + P.Alvarez
    SS ----------none---------
    OF Morse + Pence
    OF Harper + Trout
    OF Blackmon + Schafer
    OF Francour

    Verlander
    Shelby Miller
    Teheran
    Montgomery
    Wainright (DL)
    Ducherer (DL)
    Axford
    Chapman + Crow
    Minor
    Duffy + McDonald + Lyles

    Which 9 would you keep?

    • simple bump, looking for other opinions. Thanks

    • C Wieters + J.Montero
      1b Hosmer + Freeman + Morales (DL)
      2b Ackley
      3b Moustakas + P.Alvarez
      SS ----------none---------
      OF Morse + Pence
      OF Harper + Trout
      OF Blackmon + Schafer
      OF Francour

      Verlander
      Shelby Miller
      Teheran
      Montgomery
      Wainright (DL)
      Ducherer (DL)
      Axford
      Chapman + Crow
      Minor
      Duffy + McDonald + Lyles

      Keep: Wieters, Montero, Hosmer, Ackley, Moustakas, Pence, Harper, Wainright, Verlander

    • I have so many players that could be top 50 players in 3 years. Eliminating players will be difficult. Hopefully I can make some trades for established studs.

      I also have the #1 waiver, and plan on using that for Manny Machado if he gets called up this season.

      The obvious:

      Verlander
      Harper
      Trout
      Pence

      That still leaves 5 more to pick.

      Hosmer
      Moustakas
      Morse
      Shelby Miller
      Teheran

      And leave off Morales and Wainright?

      Guess I made terrible trades

      Got Morales gave Pineda

      Got P.Alverez and gave up Papelbon

      I got Wainright when I traded for ARod, who I just turned into Verlander (When got ARod, I gave up Castro and Phillips)

      • I was reading that trout has lost his power. baseball america said his attribute is his defense. thats not gonna help you much in fantasy.

        Defenitely save your waiver for Machado. that should solve your SS problem.

        As far as pence and hosmer. Its easy to get all star OF and 1B in the 3rd or 4th round of your draft next year. CY young type SP harder to get.(wainright)

        Paplebon tra was fine Pineda may be a mistake.

    • just did a dynasty draft last night. you would be in great shape in our league. I'd keep ackley, harper, verlander, shelby(who has passed teheran in new ratings),wainright, crow,montero,moust, and last probably morse
