Just got mocked by a guy for my keeper decision.

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Just got mocked by a guy for my keeper decision.

Postby Frank Rizzo » Thu Mar 08, 2012 11:57 am

Background: 10 team Yahoo League. H2H Format. 5 x 5 scoring. Start C/1B/2B/3B/SS/LF/CF/RF/UTIL on offense.

We're just switching to a keep 1 in the league this year. Keep him where you got him and place him in the round you got him last year. Obviously a shallow league. I've drawn the 9th pick out of 10. I'm chosing Justin Upton in the 5th round over Pujols in the 1st. I've told 4 guys my decision so far.....3 think I'm an idiot while 1 thinks it's a really smart move.

I've done the math with my assumed team keepers included and who I have an idea will drop to me in the 1st/2nd. If I keep Upton I see either Votto or Longoria coming to me in the 1st round. In the second round I'd be looking at a Pedroia, Kinsler, or maybe Granderson.

If I keep Pujols I give up my 1st round selection and am looking at a Pedroia, Kinsler, Granderson match.

Why am I being mocked by the majority of the league just for thinking of throwing Pujols back in? Is there something I'm missing? Doesn't it make more sense to have Votto/Kinsler/Upton after the 2nd round than it does Pujols/Kinsler and whoever coming to me in the 5th round?

Pujols is better than upton. He is a top 3 player. But 3 top 20 players is better than 2.

If it's unlimited keeper rules, your league mates are more likely to be crying than laughing when you're only burning a fifth rounder to keep J-Up year after year...

Upton in 5th is miles above Pujols in 1st
They are the clowns
