Better keeper option for '12 - '14 Uggla or Teixeira

Contract league. One of these guys must get a 2012 contract with a risk of being exposed to another GM stealing him from my team in 2013. No doubt that no matter which one I expose, he will be taken.

The rest of my keepers (who are locked down well beyond 2014):
Votto, JUpton, Andrus, Weaver and Desmond Jennings

Leaning Uggla due to position scarcity, bombs jacked from a 2B and Votto being entrenched as my long-term first baseman. However, someone affirming this will ease the anxiety on clicking SUBMIT KEEPERS.

Cheers~

Is the contract have prices or just years. With votto, you don't need two 1b and Tex is trending down

Thanks Bourne!

It's different ... we made it up ourselves to give a bit of a contract vibe with very minimal bookkeeping. This is our 1st year to designate our keepers from last season.

Basically we turn in a list like this:
Round Assignment / Player
1.Uggla or Teix
2.Weaver
3.Andrus
4.Votto
5.JUpton
===============================
6.Jennings
7.Uggla or Teix

This being our first season, we may freely put any player in any round. Next season, anyone kept from this list again will have their salary increased by $1 to a $4 max salary.
Salary Cap is $10.
Salary determined by subtracting Round Assignment from $5.
Round Assignments 6 & 7 are unique in that a) these players actually bring your team salary down (minus $1 and $2) and b) these players
are exposed to be stolen by anyone that picks after you in a February 2-round draft.
We then have a 7 round draft where everyone fills to 7 players (passing if they already full for that Round Assignment).
Finally, we start a live Y! draft with the 7 players per team pre-loaded.

Wicked creative. Id keep Uggla over Tex because you have votto.

Thanks both for the advice and the comment on the system ... hope it works (i.e. no AHA OH YEAH).
If it blows up, we will just keep 0-7 and have a 7 round offline filler draft.

Laziness ftw!
