Granderson or Ellsbury? I can only keep one

Postby Newkie » Fri Feb 04, 2011 3:42 pm

Which one of those keepers would you trade for McCann? I am in a 12 manager H2H 6x6 keeper league and we can keep 10 players.
Below is my keeper list as of now:

Morneau
Phillips
Choo
Granderson
Ellsbury
Carpenter
C. Lee
Greinke
CC
CBills

I was going to send either Grandy or Ellsbury to a manager for McCann, and then I was going to drop CBills from my list and take Drew Stubbs instead. So whats your thought?

Heres what it would look like if I had my druthers

Phillips
Choo
Ellsbury

C. Lee
Greinke
CC
Stubbs
Thanks

You are getting a great deal IMO, whether it is grandy or ells for mccan, so it is a win-win situation, IMO. If I had to pick one I would trade Grandy away and keep ellsbury. I know that sounds crazy coming from a Yankee homer, but Grandy dissappointed big time last year (to be fair so did ells) but if ells can get the leadoff spot, he could be in for a big uptick in runs. Not too sure with the Sox new lineup, but if ells is projected to be in the 9 hole, then keep Grandy.

Help with mine?

I think I'd trade Granderson and keep Ellsbury also and I agree with your decision not to keep Billingsley. He's a bit lower value and your pitching is already deep.

Same as the rest and definitely keep Stubbs over Bills.

;-D But I am one that would rather have Billingsley. I think Billingsley will take a big step forward this year.

Well its official, and although I was wanting to move Granderson, I moved Ellsbury (no fault of mine). I can live with either, especially since neither are better than McCann in my mind, and I needed a catcher of McCanns value. I still have Choo, Granderson, and in my opinion, Stubbs would be a great long term keeper. Here's my thought, I could still trade my CC and upgrade my OF or get a SS or 3B, and just keep CBills if I do it.

We dont have to give our final keepers until draft day, and I have from last yr. that I could take if I really wanted them
Johan Santana, Dempster, Wandy Rodriquez, Webb?

Thanks for your help
