I'm considering a new keeper league with an interesting starting format and could use your advice. To start managers select an MLB team and get to select 3 players form that team as first year "keepers". You must select one IF, OF, and P from the team of your choice. I'm weighing my options as far as MLB teams to start off with. MLB teams already off the board are Yankees, Rays, Nationals, Tigers, Reds, Dodgers, and Angels. These (below) are the teams I'm kind of leaning towards... what do you think? Any outside my box ideas are welcome as well.
Keep in mind I get to select any 3 players as keepers next year so long term value is nice.
PIT - McCutchen... wow thats ugly after McCutchen
MIL Braun, Ramirez, Gallardo
ATL J Upton, Freeman vs Uggla?, Medlen
COL Gonzalez, Tulo, pitcher?
TOR Bautista, Reyes, Johnson
SF Pence, Posey, Bumgarner vs Cain?
STL Holliday, Craig, Wainwright
Thanks in advance for your insight!
