Final Keeper

Postby down.by.law » Sun Mar 06, 2011 8:51 pm

Getting a little worried about all the negative Utley talk. In a H2H with 10+ off. categories (r, h, rbi, 2b, 3b, hr, sb, k, bb, avg, ops) we keep 1 INF, 1 OF, 1 choice. So far keeping:

Braun
Zimmerman

have to decide between:

Utley
Uggla
VMart

If this week reveals a more serious injury for Utley, where to go with the final keeper?
Will post on yours - Thanks

What other catchers are being kept same with 2b have to see how deep they would be..utley is def going to be a last min call..i am from Philly and don't like what im seeing and hearing especially after seeing the cortisone

Usual suspects being kept:
C
Mauer
Posey

2B
Cano
Kinsler
Pedroia

If Utley looks like he may be out sig. time, I'm leaning toward Uggla - then going for Napoli/Soto in the 3rd round (of this draft). Looks like we'll hear more in 48hrs - I don't like what I'm hearing so far (at least Valdez looks good lol)

Still Utley over Uggla, don't think Utley's done or Uggla's the type to age well anyway. No chance on V-Mart.

If any doubt about Utley's health at all, I'd go with Uggla...I like him in his new lineup. Thanks for help on mine.

Thanks for the help on mine. As we're both realizing, Utley's injury is a huge question mark. That said, I'd stick with Utley unless we hear surgery is in his future. Otherwise, I think I'd rather have Uggla than V-Mart, catcher is pretty deep this year and you can probably grab V-Mart in the draft if you want him again. Uggla has a good chance to come close to last year's numbers, other than maybe the average (but even that wasn't been as inflated as people thought), and driving in Heyward, he could be even better.

Uggla is as consistent as they come and no injury bug in a premium spot in a lineup with some protection he's your pony bud.
