Giving up the Ghost

Postby candres » Thu Jun 06, 2013 7:53 pm

More than 20 points down in AL-only 10-team keeper, keep 12 per year. I'm dead last in WHIP and ERA and 4th from the bottom in BA - looks like I'm playing for next season.

I've been offered the following deal:

Kevin Gausman - $4
Danny Hultzen - $4
Jake Odorizzi - $4


Jon Lester - $20
Mariano Rivera - $24
Matt Joyce $4

Joyce would have to be thrown back after this year anyway. Mo is likely retiring. Lester is a good deal, not great.

Odorizzi could be kept at $4 through 2015 and extended for $5/year after that. The others are good at $4 through 2016 if Hultzen pitches at least 50 in the majors this year. If he doesn't, I can stash him in AAA and he wouldn't count against my keeper limit and would be $4 through 2017.

If you are done, then I think i like the deal. It is a little risky because we just don't know what these guys will be but in an AL only having three potential young studs who could help you immediately is pretty good.
