Joey Bats or Hanley?

Postby CyboNinja » Sat Nov 26, 2011 11:04 am

Who is better? 12 team keeper 6x6 (ops) keep any 7 as long as you want.

Bautista's age is what makes it a hard pick for me. What do you guys think?

I take Bautista all day. Should beat out Hanley in most categories other than SB, especially since I see the guys around him doing better in 2012 (Lawrie + Rasmus mainly). Bautista has a huge advantage in OPS too. I don't see him fading into oblivion anytime soon either. Even if he starts to decline, you still have a few seasons to get someone younger.

age vs injury risk. I don't think you can take Hanley here

It's been 2 seasons and change of Bautista performing at an elite level and Hanley performing at an average one. I'm ready to call it a trend. Take Joey.

However Hanley isn't chopped liver - I'd be interested in seeing who your other 5 keepers are. Must be pretty awesome if you're narrowing down the last spot between Bautista and Hanley.

This. It's hard to just throw Hanley back. You must be loaded ...

I wish I was deciding on those 2 to keep. No, I own Hanley and I have some concerns for him going into next season. I was considering sending an offer of Hanley + Trumbo for Bats. Bautistas owner is stacked at pitching (Verlander and Kershaw) but his offense is pretty lame after Bats. I just wanted some input from the community before I sent any offers his way. Thanks for your opinions.

I say Bautista also. Tough to throw Hanley back though..

FWIW, I wouldn't take that offer. Trumbo holds zero value in a Keep-7 league; I don't think he cracks even the top 20 at 1B next year. You're essentially offering Hanley for Bautista, which someone thin at offense (or even stacked, for that matter) would be nuts to accept.

I wish the answer was different, since I gave Braun for Hanley early last season, but you have to go with Bautista here.
