Re: Keeper League Help

We don't give up any picks, most guys keep their three so it ends up basically starting in round 4. 3 or 4 each year will keep less so they get conditional picks before the draft starts, which is their 2nd or 3rd round pick, then when the draft starts everybody is on round 4. Confused yet? Me too. I...

Re: Keeper League Help

I've been in one keeper for about 15 years. Another for eight. The only difference btw the 2 is we do no playoffs in the original. We keep up to 3 players, no limit as to how long. Keeps it simple and doesn't seem to pose a significant advantage to anyone (see Tom Brady). Don't have an issue with an...

Re: Quentin or Berkman

You're very high on Quentin, Grey.

Would you do Nelson Cruz, Beltre for Q and keep Blalock at 3b?

He's playing Mora at 3b with A Rod on DL. And he's a very tough trade partner, how bad do we want Quentin?

Re: On Closers and Their BigFatBridesmaids

Nice, those guys weren't on the list because they were either drafted or somebody beat me to them (Steve, Kelly). I've settled on Percival(drafted), Downs(for a buck), Franklin(free), Corpas(free). Not bad for paying little to nothing for 4 rp spots. I have Tavarez and Zoomaya on the bench waiting t...

On Closers and Their BigFatBridesmaids

With apologies to Big Fat Bridesmaids everywhere, I've been musing over the sheer volume of closers, semi-closers, quasi-closers, closers in waiting and close to closings that that have graced my team so far in the first month. Seems I've been running through, over and around these guys like a crack...

Re: Who is the best 1-2 combo in baseball today?

HearHear, AlbertAlbert!

But taken over a career I'd have to go Utley/Howard also.

Re: I got an empty slot burning a hole in my lineup . . .

You and me both man, Perez and Brett Wallace are my favorite Cardinal draft picks over the last few years. Yonder Alonso? Every time I read that name I think of Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein, "there wolf, there castle, Yonder Alonso...." I'm goofy like that! Brett Wallace, Urban Legend, from S...

Re: I got an empty slot burning a hole in my lineup . . .

Tastes sweet as bacon, p0rk.

Perez is a good pick up, let's not forget he was a lights out closer for Miami when they won the CWS. Been great in the minors too. I've always liked him better than Motte for the job, eventually it will be his.
