Fantasy Baseball Keeper Help...Please!!
Moved to the Fantasy section - MoD
I play in a competitive 5x5 standard scoring roto fantasy league in which we are permitted to keep up to 5 players from year to year. My problem is a good one to have....which 5 do I keep!?!? My team was stacked last year, and only bad luck in the W category kept me from taking the league. I have whittled it down to the following players, and keep in mind you can keep these guys forever, or dump them year to year. I also pick 11th in the draft, out of 12. Also should note, we start 1 each C-1B-2B-3B-SS-Utility (all positions), 3 OF, 5 pitchers, of which 3 MUST be starters....
1B- A. Gonzalez
As of right now, I'm leaning towards Kinsler, Tulo, Longoria, and A. Gonzo - Kinsler and Tulo play at thin positions, Longoria is a future top 5 pick, and should Gonzo get traded he will become more of a monster than he is. I flip flop daily on that 5th pick. What do you all think? Thanks for the help!

I go with:
Catcher is so tough to get good stats, especially average and Wieters
will provide a nice advantage there.
Pitchers are so tough to hold due to injury, but Wainwright seems to
be immune to that and you know you will get Wins from him.

I don't understand why people seem to place Matt Wieters above Brian McCann.
McCann just turned 26. Look at the #'s he has put up:
2006: .333 avg, 24 hr, 93 rbi, 61 runs, .388 obp
2007: .270 avg, 18 hr, 92 rbi, 51 runs, .320 obp
2008: .301 avg, 23 hr, 87 rbi, 68 runs, .373 obp
2009: .281 avg, 21 hr, 94 rbi, 63 runs, .349 obp
That is some absolute consistency. He has played in 130+ games each of these 4 seasons. You can basically lock him in for .285 avg, 22 hr, 90 rbi, 60 runs, .350+ obp.
Matt Wieters could get to that point sometime in his career, but there is no guarantee. I just think McCann is very overlooked, and I would take him ahead of Wieters. And McCann is still just 26.
