Stubbs or Rasmus?

Postby Grounded Polo » Tue Feb 08, 2011 8:39 pm

Trying to decide on the final slot for keepers for standard roto league with no restrictions - Got Wright, Youk, Felix, J-Up, and Rollins pretty much set, need to pick one more. Max Scherzer is also a thought but doubtful, would think the bat is wiser.

I'm biased towards Rasmus really, wondering if I should reconsider.

Tough call. Both have 20/20 potential and Stubbs is one of my favorite sleepers this year. Honestly if it was my team, I'd keep both and get rid of Rollins. He's def. trending downward and he's not getting any younger.

But to answer your origional question, I would go with Rasmus.

Hmmm... I'd give an edge to Stubbs. Both Rasmus and Stubbs strike out quite a bit, but Stubbs has a better SB success rate and is capable of hitting 20 HR. I will say that Rasmus is the slightly safer power bet than Stubbs is.

i would go with Rasmus. Third year in, and I think he is at that age where a breakout could be likely. Where as i could see Stubbs taking a step back.

I must be underrating Stubbs, because I don't feel like this is even close. I would go Rasmus all the way. The Cardinals can't possibly screw Rasmus over again can they?

And he might not be short in power.

I like Rasmus for better HR/AVG and he's a bit more "proven". You have some speed with Wright, J-Up and Rollins and can grab a cheap Pierre type later in life if needed.

Is he more proven?
Stubbs had more runs/rbis, sb, only 1 less hr.
Add in Rasmus lucky babip, Rasmus wins average by a little.
