Keep Danks vs. Cahill?

Postby Commish23 » Sat Feb 12, 2011 1:48 pm

I can't decide if I should keep Danks or Cahill. This is a league where I can keep 5 guys, and regardless of who I keep it doesn't affect my draft picks. I have 4 keepers set, and I'm trying to decide b/t these 2 pitchers as the 5th keeper. Any advice? Everywhere I look it says Cahill won't reproduce his 2010 #'s, which is probably true, but pitching in the weak AL west is a bonus I think. Who would you keep, Danks or Cahill. I appreciate the advice

what other players are on your roster, what type of league, league size, etc are clues to help figure out your question, but both seem similar to me, Danks more wins though, but doubt i would keep any of those in a 5 keeper league unless it's a very deep league (14 teams plus) or AL only.


help with mine?

This is a typical 5x5, mixed, 12 team league. We don't allow any players drafted in rounds 1-4 from the previous year to be kept, which is why Danks and Cahill are my better keeper options. SO far I'm keeping CarGo, Ethier, Marmol, and Kershaw. The 5th i'm deciding between Cahill and Danks. Some other options I can also keep are Rajai Davis, Dempster, Ryan Franklin, Travis Wood. that's really the best of what else I have, which is why I was deciding b/t the 2 pitchers I mentioned earlier. Thanks again for your feedback

I'd go with Danks... higher upside than Cahill, IMO. I own Cahill in a dynasty league and am very happy with him, but it's tough to think he'll be able to repeat last year's numbers again with his low K rate.
