    That's where I've been leaning, so much upside though if he ever hits .250 again...

    I have George Springer just sitting in a DL spot on my roster, who should I cut for him, or should I just let him ride it out on the DL until someone else gets hurt? It's a 10 team H2H league with your standard 5x5 plus Losses in pitching and OPS for offense. I'm currently 54-15-3 on the year so I'm leaning on just keeping him on the DL until someone gets hurt or I need to make a move...

    Here's my team:
    C- Derrick Norris (C)
    1B- Todd Frazier (1B,3B)
    2B- Howie Kendrick (2B) (cut Kipnis 3 weeks ago, ouch)
    3B- Kyle Seager (3B)
    SS- Jhonny Peralta (SS)
    LF- Justin Upton (LF)
    CF- Mike Trout (CF)
    RF- Jay Bruce (RF)
    UT- Mark Trumbo (1B,LF,RF)
    UT- Kendrys Morales (1B)
    BN- Steven Souza (RF)
    DL- George Springer (RF)
    DL- David Wright (3B)
    NA- Corey Seager (SS)

    SP- Matt Harvey
    SP- Cole Hamels
    RP- Aroldis Chapman
    RP- Andrew Miller
    P- Delin Betances
    P- Zack Britton
    P- Brad Boxberger
    P- Michael Wacha
    BN- Jon Lester
    BN- Garret Richards
    BN- Julio Teheran
    BN- Carlos Rodon
    DL- Adam Wainwright

    PS- this is a keep 7 league, otherwise I'd just cut Rodon...

    Ouch... good call on the BA as I didn't notice that and I agree anyone but Trout can't be assumed will hit above 290 but I think you should assume he will and I hope I don't end up in 6th-8th, I've never missed the playoffs in 8 years in this league... 4 championships out of those 8 seasons too.

    Thanks Dennis, I was going for speed in my middle infielders as they and C were my last offensive spots taken, I'm very optimistic on the Rosario pick. Of course in a keep 7 there wasn't much available at any of those spots, I traded away both Hanley & Tulo last year at SS but I got the rights to Harvey in the 21st and the draft picks that landed me Upton and Chapman.

    Keep 7

    It is Kyle, he's definitely on the radar. Thanks.

    So I'm in a H2H keeper league, where we get to keep players in the round drafted, or if aquired as a free agent they go to the end of the draft. What 7 would you keep? I've traded away Tulo, McCutchen, Verlander, Donaldson, Wainwright and Machado in the last 2 seasons stock piling high draft picks and players with great draft positioning. Now I'm unsure of what 7 to keep. Here is my team and the rounds people can be kept in. Every year a keeper goes up 3 rounds in where you can keep him (IE Trout was 17th last year, Kipnis 18, Davis 20, Terehan 22nd.
    1-
    2-MADBUM
    3-
    4-PUJOLS
    5-HAMELS
    6-
    7-WACHA
    8-ROBERTSON
    9-
    10-
    11-LESTER
    12-
    13-
    14-SPRINGER/TROUT
    15-KIPNIS
    16-
    17-CHRIS DAVIS
    18-
    19-TEHERAN
    20-
    21-
    22-
    23-
    FA's
    JOSH HAMILTON
    RYAN ZIMMERMAN
    GARDNER
    DANIEL MURPHY
    BRUCE
    McCANN
    FIERS
    McHUGH
    McGEE
    ADAMS
    SEAGER
    DOOLITTLE
    HARVEY
    PINEDA
    BAEZ

    If 2 or more players are in 1 round, you may keep both but will lose following rounds pick (I.E. if i keep Springer & Trout it will cost a 14th & 15th and if I wanted Kipnis he'd drop to 16)

    I'm leaning on Trout in 14th, Springer in 15th, Kipnis 16th, Terehan 19th, then in rounds 21-23 taking Harvey, McHugh or Pineda, and Bruce. Your thoughts?
