Choo, Posey, or Shields?

Postby Beeblebrox » Fri Jan 27, 2012 4:48 pm

We keep 8, and I've already got these 7 in the books : Votto, Pedrioa, Hanley, CarGo, Crawford, Cliff Lee, and Weaver.

Who should my last keeper be.....Choo, Posey, or Shields?


7x7 H2H scoring. R, HR, RBI, SB, 3B, OBP, SLG and W, SV, HD, K, ERA, OBA, K/BB are the categories.

I think Choo has the most value if he comes back healthy, but he would be easier to draft than Shields. So I'd take Shields.

Shields, I think Choo can be had at a discount in drafts this year, so easily reacquired if you really want him.

I don't really care for Choo or Shields & I'm not keeping a catcher. If you can't move these guys for someone else I'd keep Shields. He's a safer keep & as others mentioned, Choo should fall a little farther than the others.

Just because catchers are riskier than other position players doesn't mean never keep them, ever. I think people are forgetting Posey's minor league pedigree and MLB performance before he got hurt. He's got the age advantage, for one thing.

This is mainly a feature of me not liking Choo or Shields very much, but don't write off Posey; he's got the talent to be a top catcher. If I had to take one of them...

With these options I'd probably keep Posey.
