  • You have Enarnacion ranked really low compared to some other rankings that have him going in the first round next year. What are your thoughts on E5?

    • I’m curious to see what rankings you’ve seen with him that high? Most of what I’ve been looking at has him right around where Richard put him in his top 50: #20.

      I still like him, and if this were standard rankings I’d probably have him just inside the top 20. I think that his keeper ranking, however, should be much lower. I actually went back and forth on him multiple times and I could justify putting him as high as 32 in keeper formats.

  • I meant Zach btw, my auto correct put Zachary:)

  • Hey Zachary – nice rankings. Keepers question for you: I can keep 4 players in a 12 team H2H league. Which of the following would you hold on to:

    David Price, Ryan Braun, Matt Kemp, Eric Hosmer, Giancarlo Stanton, Buster Posey

    • You’re fine with the name thing don’t worry.

      But anyways, Stanton, Braun, and Posey are a must keep–Braun and Stanton especially. Kemp is too big of a question mark for me. His recent ankle surgery was fairly serious, and even though he should be ready for 2014 he keeps tweaking that hamstring. I’d go with Price as your 4th.

  • Just curious on were you’d rank B.Hamilton, there been a lot of articles on him lately but nothing on were he’s ranked as a keeper unless I missed it.


    • Tim, my expectations for him are tempered because at most I think he’d get 350-400 ABs, but it’s likely he’ll get less than that. His contributions in HR, RBI, and BA will be negligible. However, in 400 ABs he could steal upwards of 75 bases and he’ll provide plenty of runs. He’s in my next 10-20 keepers for sure.

  • 10 team dynasty league, keep 10 no salary implications… I’m planning on keeping M. Machado, D. Wright, C. Davis, E. Hosmer, B. Lawrie, W. Myers, O. Tavares, X. Bogaerts, J. Fernandez, D. Jennings. I also have D. Brown, C. Santana, A. Rendon, A. Simmons, J. Soler, B. Zobrist, T. Rosenthal, Z. Greinke, S. Miller, H. Iwakuma, A. Reed, J. Shields, J. Teheran… I’m not sold on Jennings, I’m pretty sure about my other choices… Any advice is appreciated

    • I’d rather have C. Santana, S. Miller, and D. Brown over Jennings. I like the Taveras and Bogaerts keepers, they’re right outside my top 50. Brett Lawrie is a toss-up but I can’t really argue with your choice.
