The way our keepers are set up is kind of like a mini salary cap. Every yr someone is kept they go up a $1. Cap is $15 if u make the playoffs, $16 if you don't. Also the max you can keep is 9 if you make the playoffs and 10 if you don't. I made the playoffs last year so my keepers have to be 9 and only be $15. These are my keepers and price so far.
Posey - C $2
Pedroia - 2B $2
Moustakas - 3B $0 (Prospect)
Cespedes - OF $1
Holliday - OF $2
Trout - OF $0 (Prospect)
Strasburg - SP $2
Cueto - SP $2
Hernandez - SP $2
Sale - SP $1
So right now I have 8 keepers and $14 so I can keep 1 more guy worth $1. Those guys on my team are Howard 1B, Murphy 3B,2B, Capuano SP, Anibal Sanchez SP, Harrel SP, Westbrook SP, Jensen RP.
Do I keep one of those guys or do I trade for Encarnacion 1B who`s only $1 and give up Moustakas and a 2nd rd or trade Anibal for Goldschmidt to fill my 1B. I do have Machado as well on my farm to fill in for Moustakas if I trade him.
Lineup is- C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, 3 OF, 5 SP, 2 RP.
Any help would be great and sorry for the long post. Might be a little confusing.
Howard at $1 is a good gamble.
Trade Sanchez for Goldy for sure
If you can do both trades, trade Moose and a pick for EE, and then keep Machado.
I like both trades more than your own choices
