Keeper Question: Cole Hamels ($19) or David Price ($13)

Postby Moss84 » Fri Mar 11, 2011 5:50 pm

Which is the better keeper ?
12 team H2H mixed league
Pitchers - 10 pts a win, -5 a loss, 1 per K , 5 pts for CG, 5 pts for Shutout - NO ERA, WHIP etc.

Price concerns me (Rays loss of crawford, pena, bartlett - could finish in last place) and I feel Hamels is in store for top 10 season. However, Price is good value at $13.

Pitchers: (wins and K's most important) - need to keep 1.
David Price - $13
Cole Hamels - $19

Other options:
Clayton Kershaw - $22
Ted Lilly - $4
Brett Myers - $4 - was great last season and potential trade to Yankees

I didn't realize that Pena and Bartlett were big reasons why the Rays were good last year. :-S I would keep Price and enjoy his cheap cost for the next few years.

Although I like Hamels better this year, I'd go with Price for less money and comparable potential.

I'd go with Hamels as a sure-thing. I also like Lilly for $4...

Bartlett and Pena were not good on defense either. Heck Bartlett hasn't been good defensively for a few years now. ;-)
