A two-part post. First, I am looking for keeper help since in my league I can keep 15 and have 18-20 that warrant consideration. For background, we maintain rosters of 25 active players and play "traditional" 5x5 categories...12 teams in the league & a $280 salary cap. I have several no-brainer keepers (Braun $21, R Martin $14, Utley $16, Pence $6, J Upton $4, E Dukes $1, Gallardo $5, Scherzer $1) but would value input from readers here on the following...who would you keep and -- if you have time -- why/ why not?
J Schafer $1, J Rauch $1, P Sandoval $10, M Gamel $7, C Carrasco $1, L Castillo $6, C Barmes $10, J Lannan $10, J Hanrahan $11.
I can keep four from that group and am currently leaning toward Sandoval, Schafer, Carrasco & Gamel. Tough to throw Rauch back but he's not really worth a roster spot if he's not a closer. Does Hanrahan close this season for WAS?
Also, in my league we have rare openings (two) this season and if you're interested and could attend a live auction draft in Santa Barbara, CA post a note and I'll touch base with you... It's a great league with a 20-year history (I've been in it for 11 years).
