Dee Gordon or Ryan Roberts?

Postby scorpiorlr » Tue Jan 24, 2012 1:35 pm

I have a chance to grab Dee Gordon in my Keeper league. We keep 16 and Ryan Roberts and Jason Motte were my last two keepers. I have Jose Reyes as a SS and feel Dee could be a good handcuff and possible UT player for instead of Roberts. The only other option would be to consider cutting Russel Martin as my catcher. I like the SBs possibility. Its a h2h league and its possible to get him in our 9 round re-draft. Would you do it? Most likely it would involve minor league draft picks or my already listed cut players. But like I said I would need to make room.

These are my current keepers:


Russell Martin C
Prince Fielder 1st
Robinson Cano 2b
Evan Longoria 3b
Jose Reyes ss
Hunter Pence OF
Michael Bourn OF
Corey Hart OF
Shaun Marcum SP
Trevor Cahill SP
Josh Beckett SP
Ricky Romero SP
Ian Kennedy SP
Jair Jurrjens SP
Jason Motte Cl
Ryan Roberts 2b

I think I would rather have Roberts/Motte than Gordon right now. Dropping Martin for Gordon is worth considering. I am not a fan of Martin and think he played over his head last year. I think there are better options even in a league where you keep 16. But I would also be fine just trying to get Gordon in the draft although I think it would be easier to get Martin in the draft than Gordon.

I agree with this. Gordon over Martin is something to think about. Then you have a backup SS who can steal bases if/when Reyes goes down (one of your primary SB guys).

Sounds like a plan! ;-D

I think that move looks okay. I'm just not sure I'd want a backup SS over a starting catcher. I will say that I'm not particularly high on Gordon. Though since your starting SS is Reyes it makes sense to have a backup.

Agrre with the others in going with Dee over Martin. C should be easier to fill in the draft and Gordon could make for a good keeper going forward in a league where you keep 16.
