    Help with Keepers

    Adrian Gonzalez for sure. How can you pass up 25HR, 100RBI, .280BA? And most of the top 1B will probably be kept by other teams, so he's sure to be drafted already when I start to pick in the first round. Pedroia is definitely intriguing with the lineup they have. But I'm concerned about his declining power and stolen bases. That was a huge part of his value, the way it is for kipnis now. So if i don't keep an OF like CarGo or Gordon or Bruce, i would lean to Kipnis

    It would definitely be tough to let them go. I've thought about the middle infielders, but with 3 picks in the top 13, I'm pretty sure i could get those guys. I'm not even sure Castro will go in the first round, based on previous years in this league. Gonzo and Gonzo will be just that, Gonzo, by the time I pick. I'm leaning towards the Gonzalez's, and seeing if I can deal CarGo right after the draft to address any weaknesses i have. Someone will definitely bite based on his name, and potential.

    My general philosophy is to keep the best overall players, regardless of position. If you want to keep all of them, think about it this way. When my turn comes up to draft in the first couple rounds, which of these guys will still be on the board? Whoever you think has that chance, don't keep.

  • Any input would be great. Had a tough season due to injuries, finished 10th out of 16.
    Very deep league, 16 teams as mentioned, H2H.
    Offence: Runs (R), Hits (H), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), Walks (BB), Strikeouts (K), Fielding Percentage (FPCT), Batting Average (AVG), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)

    Pitching: Innings Pitched (IP), Wins (W), Complete Games (CG), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), Strikeouts per Nine Innings (K/9), On-base Percentage Against (OBPA), Quality Starts (QS), Net Saves (NSV)

    I need to keep 2 out of these guys
    Adrian Gonzalez
    Carlos Gonzalez
    David Ortiz
    Alex Gordon
    Jay Bruce
    Dustin Pedroia
    Jason Kipnis
    Shin Soo Choo
    Ryan Zimmerman
    Eric Hosmer
    Starlin Castro
    Melky Cabrera

    Oh and I also have 3 picks in the first round, 10th,11th, and 13th. And I have the majority of my 20 picks in the first 10 rounds, so I should be able to put together a good team. As I said, any input would be appreciated. They all seem to come with their own set of risks

    Commissioner question

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks very much for confirming my suspicions!
    I plan to confront him about it if another issue comes up later. So you can confirm that there is no way this could happen? I hate to pester you for free advice, but is there any chance you could elaborate a bit on how it works? I get the impression he is saying that he thought he was logged in a manager and was proposing the trade to the other team, when in fact he was acting as commish at the time and instead of offering the trade, he accepted it as a done deal.
    I just want to make sure I have all my info correct before I re-accuse him

  • A while back my league's commissioner accepted a trade between himself and a team that was inactive for quite a while. The league was set to commissioner review for trades. It was a trade that he definitely got the better of, but my concern was collusion, since the team he traded with had multiple empty roster spots and injured players still active. Also, the trade was immediately accepted, while other trades usually sat for about a day before the commissioner accepted them. When I called him on it in the league message board he was quick to say it was a mistake and reversed it. His excuse was that he accidentally accepted the trade thinking he was opening the trade as a manager, not as the commissioner.
    I have never been a commissioner so my question is, is that possible? Is it highly improbable? Or maybe even impossible?
