hello. i need some help on who to hold on to next season. 12 team keeper league, standard roto, with 10 bats/2 utility spots active. we keep 8 players, plus the youngins (who are free for a few years).
sold out last year, so i've got lots of kids...and lots of extra picks next year...but still managed a top 3 finish/$$$.
Free kids: Neftali Feliz, Stephen Strasburg, Dayan Viciedo, Logan Morrison, Jenrry Mejia, Starlin Castro, Aroldis Chapman. (Obviously, not all of them will be helping me next season...for various reasons. I've got quite a few other prospects who are years away from the show as well...like sano, profar, sanchez, banuelos, singleton, etc.)
Anyways, i've got to pick my other 4 keepers from these 10 names:
Jose Bautista = a one year wonder?
Carlos Beltran = barely relevant last couple years.
Chone Figgins = disappeared in Seattle.
Alexei Ramirez = ok, but Castro is free.
Andres Torres = nice '10, but very replaceable.
Matt Wieters = will he ever materialize?
Phil Hughes = #3 SPs are easily drafted.
Joe Nathan = should be back closing.
Jake Peavy = hurt...out until May/June.
Johan Santana = hurt...out until June/July.
Not the best list of names. But like i said...i sold out for kids/prospects (their free yrs) and extra draft picks. Anyhow, if possible, plz lmk which 4 you'd keep (from those 10) and why.
Fwiw, this is how i'm leaning. Dump Alexei, w/ Starlin being free. Dump Torres. Dump Peavy & Santana. Not sure when either will be back, or how well they'll return in the summer. Dump Hughes. Leaning to holding Nathan, in all honesty. If Feliz keeps his closer roll, i won't have to worry about saves for quite some time in our draft. (The league tends to grossly overpay/draft for saves.) Still believe in Wieters, though i'm not sure why. And @ least Bautista's done something for me lately. Which leaves a coin flip between Figgins & Beltran.
In other words...i'm not really sure wtf to do w/ these last 4 keeper spots...so i'm seeking advice. Thanks in advance for any help.
