I play in a keeper league where the positions are specific (LF, CF, RF, RHS, LHS) and it is NOT a roto league. It's a points and sabermetric league (http://fantasy.stats.com/sfbb/rules/rules2002_5.asp) and I don't know who I would rather have presuming I got a pick where I would have to decide who to take between C.Beltran and V. Wells. Who would I rather have for this keeper league? Since Beltran missed 20 more games and has 157 less AB's than Wells last year due to injury, who's going to be better? (Wells had 680-611 edge over Beltran last year, but if Beltran played 20 more games, the numbers would practically be equal) Thanks

Beltran. I'm guessing .310-30-110-40. Those 40 SB make him extremely valuable and thats why I have him ranked as the #5 player overall, behind only Arod, Pujols, Soriano and Vlad.

Beltran by alot, Vernon had a monster year last season and I don't see him putting up identical numbers.

Beltran hands down.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
