Keeper: Hosmer or Crawford? WHIR

Postby exm » Mon Sep 26, 2011 7:38 pm

Ok, I was thinking about keeping Crawford as one of my 5 keepers (Cano, Fielder, R Zimm, C Lee are the others), but with Crawford pretty much sucking and E Hosmer probably winning ROY... Shouldn't I keep Hosmer instead? 14 Players H2H Yahoo League. Thanks and WHIR.

I would stick with the more proven player, Carl Crawford.

I agree. Crawford would be my pick. I think he settles in at Fenway next year, and gets back to being something like he was in Tampa.

I love to watch Carl Crawford play baseball, but not in Boston. I don't think he ever gets to run there like he did in Tampa. So the thing that made him most valuable is greatly diminished. I'm from the KC area and watched Hos play many times this season. Think of him as a fast Lance Berkman.

Agree w/ the rest. Crawford is the better option. I could see the argument for keeping Hosmer though.

Keep Hosmer. Why hope for a player to find his game next season? Besides, his huge SB totals are likely a thing of the past.

+1
Without the SB Crawford is just a good player. I'd gamble on Hosmer being a special hitter.

I'm w/ the Hosmer group. I think Crawford will rebound, but Hosmer's too tantalizing and could make Fielder great trade bait. Plus you have to fig Crawford drops in the draft based on his 2011 and might be easy to get again.

Please help w/ mine! Thanks! http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=437095

This is tough. It really depends on what kind of owner are you. Do you like having the young uber talented player that might not take the step forward everyone is expecting next year or the guy that is unlikely to put up his past number ever again and who is already over the age of 30.

I personally would take Hosmer. He looked really good this year and scouts have been raving about him for the past couple years. I think he takes a nice step forward next year and in a few years is one of the best hitters in the game.
