5 year keeper...who to take??

Postby buddylee » Mon Mar 07, 2011 4:57 am

i am in a 12 team roto league. we can draft a 5 year keeper. the keeper can have no mlb experience, only played in the minors. i have the 1st pick, right now i am stuck between harper and trout. or i can stay with my current keeper, starlin castro. what do you think??

Trout might be the safer pick, but i take Harper by a nose.

I think I would go with Harper as well. Bigger upside.

Harper has the higher ceiling, though I expect Trout to contribute in the majors faster. Personally, I'd go with Harper, but both are outstanding prospects.

Something smells fishy about Harper's attitude, give me the Trout.
