Better Keeper? Utley or Lincecum?

Postby Boyakasha » Mon Feb 28, 2011 6:20 pm

Maybe I'm just having second thoughts because of Utley's patellar tendinitis, but who's the better keeper, Chase Utley or Tim Lincecum?

In general I'd go with Utley. However, depending on your keepers, I could see keeping Lincecum to start your staff off in a big way.

Age and upside I would take Lincecum, but it all depends on how many you keep and who your other keepers are.

It really depends on ur other keepers. If you hav good hitters, go with Lincecum. If you already have 2-3 other good SP then go with Utley. All things being equal, I'd roll with Lincecum, and I rarely pick a SP keeper over a stud hitter like Utley but his healthy/age concerns me a bit to throw lincecum back.

help with mine?

I still think you go with Utley. Top tier 2B has much more value..You can build a nice pitching staff this year, especially with only 3 kept per team.

I think you can go either way but I would stick with Utley. Those are 3 studly keepers.

After seeing your keepers I change my mind and say go with Utley.

You guys had me convinced to go with Utley, but with no progress on his knee, I'm starting to waver again. I have until Wednesday. Is Utley still the better pick, even with his injury concerns?
