Keep Utley? WHIR

Postby Zhangman1 » Thu Mar 10, 2011 4:15 pm

6x6 league OPS & Hlds. Normally keep 5 per year but get to keep 6 since I won last year. So far my keepers are:

1. Pujols
2. Utley
3. Tulo
4. ARod
5. CarGo
6. Kershaw

I was gonna drop Cliff Lee but should I keep him instead of Utley for this year? 14 team league, I pick last in the first round. Any chance Utley falls back to me? I'm doubting it.

I'd keep Utley. Lee is nice but you won't get Utley back at the end of the 1st round and you lock up your (very nice looking) IF by keeping him. Furthermore, SPs are deep this season and you've already got Kershaw to anchor your staff.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=423721

Yeah I would keep that infield together. Utley's health concerns me, but so does Lee's, so I'd stay with where you are.

Utley's health is a major concern and Lee is a great SP, but I would still keep Utley. I think its easier to find a decent SP than it is to find an above average 2B.

Thanks for your help with mine.

Depends on when your keeper list is due. The speculation on Utley gets worse by the day. Unless he comes back with a miracle cure I'd go the safe route and take Lee.

Don't know when you have to declare keepers, but if Utley has surgery (which seems likely) I would not keep him

Normally I'd go with Utley who has been a 6 category contributor over a pitcher only contributing in 4. However I'd go with Lee just because of Utley's knee problems.
