Votto Keeper/Trade Q.

for my home $-league, we have a few new owners in our 12-team auction draft league, and we count OPS as a 6th hitting category and use SV+HLD as a bullpen category instead of either/or. Early round bidding is often super-inflated, and I typically spend $60 or less on the pitching side.

I am really tempted to keep Votto at $42 since I'm certain he'll auction for more than that and am expecting a career year out of him in '12. Or I could let him drop. Or there's potential for a trade where I'd send him out for some combo of Jesus Montero at $6, Ike Davis at $15, Morrow at $6 and Scott Baker at $2. No sure things among those four but good potential value. If I did a deal like that, I would then not protect Marcum who I do not like at any price in '12. The rest of my keeper group is posted below.

All input/ideas welcome. Thanks.

I'd take that Montero deal...

I like keeping Votto.

Paired with Braun, that's a great start, even at those prices.

I like Montero and Morrow a little bit, no on Davis (price) and Baker (replacement level).

Good to see the can of corn!

I love Davis this year.
