Keep 2 for fantasy baseball



Ryan Braun obviously is 1 of them. If I dont keep 2 then I have a pick in that 2nd round, but I have the first pick in the draft, so would pick last in that round if others do not keep 2 players as well.

Ryan Braun
Josh Hamilton
Ian Kinsler
Yu Darvish
David Price

League is the standard 10 categories, but is just 1 win or loss for the week depending on who wins the majority of the categories.

Just not sure its worth keeping Hamilton this year, think a better player may be available in drafting that isn't kept by someone else.

Thanks for the help

Need scoring settings but Price seems to be the obvious choice for me

I've never played in a scoring system like this. So there's 10 categories. You win 6 of those, you win your match up for the week? What if it's 5-5? I'd definitely keep Price. You have a player that will contribute to all 5 hitting categories and a player to contribute to 4/5 pitching to build around.

5-5 would be a tie. It's very strange, first time I played was last year. There is also a 8 pitcher starts cap on starting pitching. I really think this year I'm going to go pitcher heavy

Can you explain this? So you can keep Price but only insert him into your lineup 8 times?

no its a per week thing, you can only start 8 pitchers a week. Anything more than that (aside from relief appearances) does not count for the week.

I'm in a 7x7 with the same weekly win setting. We add OPS and Hits (not a lot of sense there) and then QS and Ls for pitching.

Who would you project the others keeping? What is your draft position? Who will be available when you draft?

I have never seen the best pitching staff win a title in our leagues history. Especially when the playoffs start and your staff throws once a week just based on their schedules. I'd prefer having the best hitters playing 6 games a week than a pitcher throwing an average of 1.5

This is standard scoring. It's strange that that was the first time you've ever played it.

Braun and Hambone

I say you keep Braun and Ham then load up in pitching during the draft

Best 2 players of the group imo.

Only way this happens is it someone has 3 top 20 players on their roster or someone decides to keep a player outside the top 20. Don't see Hamilton falling past the 2nd round.
