Need Help with Final Keeper.......WHIR

Postby somervillesoxfan » Mon Feb 14, 2011 9:59 pm

I need help with choosing my final keeper. I've put together a nice selection of keepers through drafting and trades last year. Head to head 10 team league where we keep 6 players each year. Can't make any trades so I just have to choose 6. So far I'm keeping A.Pujols, D.Wright, R.Braun, Adrian Gonzalez, and J.Hamilton. I need to choose between Justin Upton, Buster Posey, and Ian Kinsler. I'm leaning towards Posey but Uptons upside could be huge. I dOnt really want to keep 3 OF's. Please help and leave a link.

Gotta be Upton. He'll produce more this year and you can still get a solid catcher in a shallow league like that. Plus, when Hamilton starts to fall off, Upton will be hitting his prime and pick up right where Josh left off....

Without question. He has the upside of a top 5 guy.

Posey. That production from Catcher is extremely hard to match.

That's what I was thinking. Posey could become a 1st round pick if he progresses with the catcher eligibility. I'm just nervous that all Upton is is upside he never lives up to the hype. Struck out a ton last year and the avg wasn't very good.
Keep the comments coming.

I might be the odd one here, but keeping Posey at a think position sets you for the draft, and you don't have to worry about scrubs like Iannetta or Buck or Molina's of the world, when you have a top 3 catcher protected. BOTTOM line you can go wrong with keeping a stud like Upton, but there are more OUTFIELDERS then QUALITY CATCHERS

Upton is the better keeper but really, it's 10 teams and your top 5 is already so stacked I don't think gambling on Posey is a big deal.

Posey is Sexy, and Upton is coming down from an "off" year. With all that said...KEEP UPTON! He is only 23 and will not begin to peak for a few years.
