Sandoval or Sizemore?

Postby bigcrowleystyle » Sat Feb 05, 2011 11:57 am

Need advice! WHIR..

12 team keeper league. Each team can keep 8 and you get the guy in the round you drafted him. So I have Adam Jones but he'll cost me a 6th round pick, not keeping him. Anyway, I have Sandoval in the 11th and Sizemore in the 13th. I'm already at the end of my rope with both these guys but I have room to keep one of them. Who is gonna have the bounce-back year?

To round out the picture, I'm keeping:

2nd round: Utley
3rd: Halladay
4th: Kemp

14th: Soto
15th: Phil Hughes

20th: Justin Upton
21st: Aaron Hill


Or do I not keep Hill and keep both Sandoval and Sizemore? Last season was my worst fantasy baseball finish ever, I would love any advice I can get.

It looks like you have the right guys. You're likely in for a bounce-back year given your keepers (Utley injuries, Kemp/Upton getting better, etc.).

But as for your question, I would choose Sandoval over Sizemore this year. He's younger, and Sizemore has been trending in the wrong direction for a while.

Hey man, I look at it this way. You absolutely have to take Sandoval. He showed us all what he can do and that is a beautiful thing. You also might want to toss back Hill because you have Utley and take a final chance on GSize. I say this because 1. he is my buddy, 2. 20/20 is solid numbers for a former top 5 pick coming off of a major injury.

Hill is in a deep position and I feel you can get the same production of another one of my boys Danny Espinosa given a full year.

I would take Pablo as well. Sizemore's numbers had been heading in the wrong direction even before the injury last year.

I say go with Sandoval as well, the list of fantasy caliber 3B in a 12 team keeper will be marginal at best and OF is very deep plus you can redraft Sizemore since his injury history, and decline will scare some off, keep hill he should rebound to a .275 25 hitter which will offste Utley when he gets hurt

Pablo. I really think he is going to rebound this year - everything I'm reading says he was embarrassed about last season and has put a lot into conditioning this offseason
