Pick last keeper Machado or Carlos Santana. WHIR ASAP!

Postby teeznutz » Sun Jan 27, 2013 9:49 pm

Yahoo 10 team H2H Keeper Redraft league

Standard 5x5 scoring 8 keepers per team max 3 yrs keeper per player

My keepers: Braun, Cargo, Stanton, Longoria, Bumgardner, Kimbrel, Goldschmidt, Machado/Santana

Pick my last keeper:

Carlos Santana (last yr of keeper eligibility)

Or

Manny Machado (3 yrs of keeper eligibility)

I'm leaning towards Machado due to high upside but I know Santana will be put me in better position to win this year. Please help and leave a link.

Thanks!

If it definitely comes down to those two, I'd go with Machado for sure. I do like Santana a lot this year, but three years of Machado could be huge.

It's an 8 teamer. I am not keeping a catcher here unless he's Posey. Machado all the way.

How many years on Goldschmidt?
I would keep both over him.
If not, Santana.
Try to win now, and he is batting 4th in age 27 season.

While Machado has a great deal of potential upside, he's going to take a few years to get there (full disclosure: I own him in an AL-Only league). You have a strong set of keepers and even though Santana is a catcher, he is still worth keeping. You should be going for the win this year, and you can always try to redraft Machado.

Help if you could

8 teamer gotta cut Machado. It's not like it will be 3 years of his prime and you have Longo already. Santana could be top 2-3 catcher and you have strong team to contend.

Your team can win now, keep Santana.

You can't hold on to him indefinitely, so having Machado for the next two years isn't really worth the sacrifice of the better player this year in Santana. Also this is a 10 team 8 man keeper, so its not like the talent pool will be very shallow. I suspect if you really wanted Machado you could probably grab him back in the draft relatively easy.

Santana: The name of the game is to win, not get close for the next few years.
