help deciding on last keeper...WHIR

Postby speedy27 » Wed Dec 29, 2010 6:54 pm

I'm in a 12 team 7x7 (add OBP, TB and IP, Holds) H2H keeper league (10 keepers)...we start 5 SP's and 5 RP's. we also have a Minor League roster to stash away players. Here's my keepers:

Ryan Howard
Brandon Phillips
Evan Longoria
Elvis Andrus
Carl Crawford
Josh Hamilton
Roy Halladay
CC Sabathia
Ubaldo Jimenez

the last one i'm leaning towards Nelson Cruz over Jose Bautista. I'm hoping to combine one or the other with some of my non keepers (Furcal, Uribe, etc) for draft picks.

Personally I would keep Cruz (yes I know he spends time on the DL each year) and try to capitalize on the big year Bautista had in trade for draft picks. If Cruz puts it all together for a full season he'll have monster numbers while Bautista needs to prove 2010 was for real.

I would agree with the others, but I am more inclined to go with Cruz, and feel Bautista 2010 was a fluke season, ala Brady Anderson and may revert back to his utility inf days.

help with mine?

What about trading both Cruz and Bautista and trying to land a more significant upgrade for your final keeper? ;-D

just wanted to give this a healthy bump as keepers are due Sunday? Still debating between Andrus and Bautista...really worried about Bautista putting up similar #'s as last season. If he doesn't hit the HR is he that much better than what Andrus' long term upside could be?

thanks for any help!
