McCutchen or Kemp? WHIR

Postby Prooks25 » Sat Jan 29, 2011 11:55 pm

12 team, 5x5 roto keeper league:

Who's better, McCutchen or Kemp? I know almost all rankings have Kemp over McCutchen, but I still can't decide. McCutchen is such an intriguing player and Kemp is a question mark.

Love them both but straight up I will take Kemp. More HR and RBI with good SB.

If you ask most people, they'd value Kemp over McCutchen.

I'd say it depends upon your needs.. If you're really desperate for SBs, I'd suggets you go for McCUtchen..

I want Kemp. Torre out, Rhianna out, focus back. He's real talented. The AVG should come back up, and he's one of the few true 30/30 threats. I don't think he gets the steals, but he'll provide good value. He also won't be jerked around in the order this year like Torre did to him, so the R/RBI opportunities should be good.

I'd take Kemp here. A rebound is in order for him average-wise (really unlucky) and he nearly hit 30 HR last season. I can't see Kemp's baserunning attempts decreasing, especially with Davy Lopes on the Dodgers' coaching staff. McCutchen is on the up, but still, I'd say Kemp has the better overall upside.

Being a Cutch fan, I would still take Kemp......Big rebound season coming up. HOWEVER you can't really go wrong here.

Kemp will give you more Bomb's.

Yeah, I think it has to be Kemp, too. God, I hope he gets focused again. If Rhianna is out of the picture, as well as Torre, that will go a long way to helping.

Could you give me some help on this choice?
