Tomorrow I have to submit my keeper list in my one of my NL-only keeper leagues. I have been an owner in this 5 x 5 league for about 15 years now. Before I give my list, here are two trades I made this morning:
Trade #1: I traded a $28 Tim Lincecum for a $15 Martin Prado and a $6 Ryan Franklin
Trade #2: I traded a $4 Ian Desmond and a $3 Madison Bumgarner for a $15 Chris Young-the outfielder
I made these deals as I had more than the maximum 10 keepers, and I don't like paying up for starting pitchers, even Tim Lincecum.
My keeper list is after the jump:
These 10 keepers will cost me $134 of my $260 budget. I also have a $14 Stephen Strasburg, a $4 Jonny Gomes and a $25 Andre Ethier that I am not keeping. Should I keep Gomes or Ethier over anyone on my keeper list? I am throwing Strasburg back due to him being out most, if not all, year.
