Keeper: R.Zimmerman or B.Posey? whir

Postby Trebor » Wed Mar 16, 2011 10:16 pm

-12 team Keeper (this year & next only, then league will restart from scratch)
-cats: R-1B-2B-3B-Hr-Rbi-Sb-Bb-K-AVG
-positions: C-1b-2b-3b-ss-of-of-of-u-3bench spots for bats

Im already keeping J.Votto & J.Hamilton, and am stumped on my choice for 3rd & final keeper.

R.Zimmerman
OR
B.Posey


as stated above this is for this year & next only, then league will regenerate fresh. I tend to think Zim is overrated (thats from a Nats fan who lives in DC area), and the 2 "minor" injuries hes had recently arent encouraging. Also the fact that 2 out of last 3 years hes missed 20 or more games. That said he is clearly ranked better on all lists, sometimes rounds better, than Posey. I just kinda salivate about Poseys full season potential after doing what he did last year in only 4 months.

In a 12 team league with only one catcher I'd never keep Posey in the 3rd round. Which is what you are proposing. Zimmerman is the way to go, and I'm no Zim fan either.

I'd keep Posey. Qualifies at 2 positions, is a pure hitter and I think the sky's the limit for the kid. You've seen what Zimmerman can do. I think you are better off going after a Jose Bautista or an Aramis Ramirez later on.

Zimmerman and it's not even close.
League Setup:
13 Team Points League
6 Hitters 3 Pitchers (Positions don't matter)
1B = 1, 2B = 2, 3B = 3, HR = 4, RBI = 1
Win = 12, Save = 5

Zimmerman, easily.

Posey's 1B eligibility is virtually worthless. His value is as a catcher, and even that's a relatively deep position this year compared to 3B.
