    Default Need to select 3 keepers

    Hey guys (aka the handful of you that are active in this part of the forum); just wanted to thank you all for your help this past year. The knowledge shared here over the course of the season has allowed me to claim back-to-back titles in my keeper league (10-team H-2H, standard Yahoo cats).

    I need to select my 3 keepers for next year as our format allows us to keep 3 players that were not drafted in the first 4 rounds for 1-year. We also have a franchise player who we can keep for 3 years (I have Arenado for 1 more year).

    Let me know who you guys and gals would keep from my team below for next year (I just listed the guys that can be kept/worthy):

    Schwarber
    Dozier
    J. Upton
    McCutchen
    C. Taylor

    Strasburg
    A. Wood
    Bumgarner
    Kimbrel
    Osuna

    I'm thinking All-In on pitching with the 3 SPs but a case can be made for Kimbrel and since pitchers are volatile from 1-year to another, maybe opt for a batter or 2 instead?

    Any advice here is very appreciated!

    Tough one.

    I think Strasburg and Bumgarner are ones I would definitely keep. I think Kimbrel should get some consideration but I hate the thought of keeping a RP. Even after the year Alex Wood just had, I am not sure I'd keep him in a limited keeper either. Upton or McCutchon are the two bats I like but hard to say if I'd do one of them either.

    Sorry for the rambling, just me chewing on the keyboard.

    I think I'd keep Alex Wood over Kimbrel or the batters and hope he can do it again.

    I think that's a great strategy. Strasburg, Bumg and Kimbrel. Can't say I trust Wood to have another year like this.

    Lets get the 2 easy ones out of the way. Stras and Bum-G.

    I would explore moving one of those for a hitter maybe and then keep Kimbrel (1batter, 1SP, 1RP). But if you don't get a good deal going 2SP, 1RP i think is good for your situation. If you dont have quality starts as a category Kimbrel puts up starter stats really.

    Thanks for the advice gents! I too am not sold on Wood so I'm going to try to target a few teams that may have a weak 3rd keeper and see if I can do a Kimbrel+Wood for an upgrade on my end.

    If not, the consensus seems to focus on Pitching so I'll flip a coin closer to my selection date and see who I keep between Wood and Kimbrel if ever I wasn't able to upgrade.

    Rep'd you all; thanks again!
