Do I keep Cliff Lee over Jose Reyes? ALL HELP RETURNED

Postby kaiser » Mon Jan 31, 2011 12:41 pm

Please leave a link for all help returned, on my Baseball Cafe honor...

10-team 5X5 H2H keeper (keep four)

My first thee keepers are Ryan Braun, David Wright and Chase Utley.

That leaves me with a decision on who will be my last keeper. Do I keep Cliff Lee and assure myself of a top-5 SP at the top of my rotation, or do I instead keep Jose Reyes, and have the (imo) #3 player at a shallow SS position.

All help would be greatly appreciated.

Reyes for me.
I'm not as high on Lee as others.

Lee has more value as a top SP than Reyes as a bounce back SS. Reyes has had health issues over the past couple seasons, Lee has been a model of consistency.

I would go with Reyes as well. Braun, Wright, Utley and Reyes is a nice 4-some to head into the draft with.

I usually go with the BAT over the PITCHER, but Lee is a different cat, PLUS big factor Reyes seems to be injury prone.

I would go reyes over lee... yeah hes injury prone but guy can still put up numbers at a shallow SS position... Lee is good... however cole hamels was excellent last season and the phillies screwed him on 1-0 nothing losses way too many times... guy pitched awesome games and no run support got him losses...so the phillies left a bad taste in my mouth and can see the same thing happening to lee.. no run support = losses go with reyes

Yea I would stick with Reyes. Both have their issues which means go with the hitter.

I say keep Lee, Top 5 Pitcher over a SS who's never healthy. All that's there with Reyes is uncertainty. You don't win leagues with uncertainty.

I would keep Reyes without question. SS is extremely shallow, and in a 4 player keeper league, I'm sure there are going to be quality top end pitchers there for you to draft, whereas the best options at SS will most likely be gone. SP are easy to find throughout the season, SS not so much.
