You're right, but at the time, it seemed to make sense... I saw Hanley as comparable to Braun, and Crawford as better than Reyes. of course, now that the season has progressed, I wouldn't make the deal again.

Anyway, thanks to all of you for good help here. I'm going to stand pat with Votto.

Pretty even. Stand pat is ok. I think Evan is the best keeper 3B, so i probably do it myself.
I think Votto overachieved a bit last year, with a 25% hr/fb ratio.

That's my sense, too. But the ESPN keeper rankings has Longoria at 7 and Votto at 11, which makes me question things a bit.

Only reason hes rated as a higher "keeper" is he plays 3b (and 3b is so shallow right now). Votto will give you better fantasy numbers so I would keep him.

Agree. It's great having the best in the league at such a shallow position, and Longo is definitely going improve on his poor year this year, but I would still stick with Votto.
