I'd throw back Zimmerman at 5. I also think Pence is pricy at 4 though I think I'd keep him anyway.

With the extra 5 I'd keep Berkman, Kennedy and Sanatan while also throwing back Francoeur.

He's still Jeff Francoeur and you're still in an OBP league :shrug:

Yes he is(22 SB's are what stood out to me), and what's wrong with OBP as a roto category?

22 SBs missed equaling his career totals by one. His 22-10 success rate is of dubious value in real-life but it's hard to argue with the managerial record of Ned Yost :rolleyes:OBP is a fine category unless you have Jeff Francoeur on your team. He has to have a year like 2011 to be just league average in OBP. There's no question he had a productive year this year but I think he's a regression risk. A buck is a fair salary but OF is a deep position. How many teams and OF slots do you play?

Francoeur loses value in an OBP league. Quite a bit, actually. His .285 BA is above average and an asset. However, his .329 OBP is average or slightly below which takes some of his value away.

4 OF + 2 UTL spots.

He has 45 career SBs, 22 of which came this year.Also, he got lucky to get an OBP that high. He's not a .285 hitter, nor is he likely to repeat in the power categories. If you're keeping him, do it because you expect 65-15-70-10-.310, not because you expect him to repeat his career year. And if this is a OBP league, I'd seriously consider throwing back Pence and taking Price.

Well it seems like 5 is not a bad price... can you keep him at that price in 2013 as well? If so I'd lean towards keeping him anyway.C: J Monerto(1) R Martin(1)1B: L Berkman(2) T Helton(1)2B: D Espinosa(2) D Ackley(1)3B: R Zimmerman(5)SS: Y Escobar(1)OF: N Cruz(6) R Braun(5) H Pence(4) B Harper(2) J Francoeur(1) M Trout(1) SP: D Price(4) M Scherzer(4) I Kennedy(2) E Santana(2) J Jurrjens(2) V Worley(1) J Teheran(1)RP: A Aceves(1) A Vizcaino(1)Montero (1), Berkman (2), Ackley (1), Trout (1), Kennedy (2) - that's $7 of definites, leaving $11 for the rest. I think I'd rather have Pence over Zim, and you can't keep Pence/Price/Braun. So if you can keep Braun for 2013 and beyond at that price, then keep him anyway, along with whichever of Price/Pence you like better and a couple of $1 guys. If you can't, then I'd keep both Price/Pence.

Unfortunately, each year a player is kept, his value increases by $2Does anyone think Pujos move to ANA will effect Trout?

Not Pujols per se....BUT if Morales is back and Trumbo isn't traded and they don't get rid of Abreu, there aren't enough chairs when the music stops.As the team is constructed today I would expect Trout to start the year at AAA

14-team 5x5 roto. Keep 5. Here's my list:

Alex Avila

Peter Bourjos

Mike Carp

Coco Crisp

Edwin Encarnacion

Danny Espinosa

Jeff Francoeur

Chris Heisey

John Mayberry

Eduardo Nunez

Carlos Peña

Eric Thames

Vernon Wells

Pitchers

Brandon Beachy

Rafael Betancourt

Rubby De La Rosa

Daniel Hudson

Mark Melancon

Ivan Nova

Sergio Santos

Right now I'm leaning toward: Espinosa, Nunez, Beachy, Santos and Betancourt

I like Mayberry if he starts. I was also very impressed with Encarnacion in the second half last season. I like Hudson; I've had him for two years and he's pretty reliable, but none of the gaudy #s that will help win a league.

Might as well keep all the keeper questions in one place.

I need to keep 5. Please note there is no value tied to each player & I play in a points league where pitcher scoring is a little ridiculous. Thus pitchers have more value than most leagues. Ill just list the guys who are in the mix and bold the ones Im planning on keeping right now. I can only keep these players for two more years. I can use some advice:

JUpton

JReyes

Grienke

Kennedy

McCann

Sandoval

Morse

Cruz

Pence

Please note I traded away Kershaw for Reyes & Marcum in this league last year and wanted to kill myself. I also traded away Cabrera for JUp & Price and then turned around and traded away Price for Kennedy & Sandoval to shore up my playoff run.

Presumably long term keeper league with minor league draft......and no salaries involvedI would keep Arenado and MachadoArenado is clearly #1 - he will have a chance to make the Rockies out of spring training and that will only happen if he is going to play 3B everyday (Casey Blake ain't blocking his path)As far as the shortstops, I like Machado better as a hitter but say you call them even.Who has the tougher path to the majors?Machado to replace a 29 year old J.J. Hardy? (for a losing Baltimore team where the fans would love to cheer for a young star)Profar to replace a 23 year old Elvis Andrus? (where the team is set to compete for several years)

Great Problem to have.. I go with these, but arguments can also be made for just about everyone. I view Kendrick and Garcia as the weakest selections of the bunch.

No details on league size or starting lineupsI read later posts and you say choice is Hosmer,Crawford, or WietersFor keeper leagues Hosmer is the clear choice IMO (especially in one catcher leagues)

I'm in a 10 team h2h league and we're switching to keeping 1 player this year. We can keep a guy based on where we drafted him. I have 2 choices....

1 - Keep Pujols and give up my 1st round pick.....not sure what draft order is yet so this could be pretty good value if I end up picking 10th. Uber-elite power/BA numbers are hard to come by.

2 - Keep J Upton and give up my 5th rounder....I see ADP's with Upton in the 1st so this would be really good value. And I would keep my 1st round pick.

Keeping Upton is the slam dunk choice here. Not even much to think about, as far as I'm concerned.

I've already completely changed my mind. Looking at going with Santos, Betancourt, Beachy, Hudson and Vernon Wells. I still like Nunez, if he has a role that'll get him 450-500 ABs.
