Keeper Question, Due Tomorrow, Please Help

Postby fookie006 » Sat Feb 18, 2012 4:54 pm

I have to choose 2 of the following 3: David Wright, Mike Stanton, or Andrew McCutchen. I am already keeping Miguel Cabrera and I was initially going to automatically keep David Wright and choose between Stanton and McCutchen.

However, with Cabrera's move to 3B upcoming, it makes Wright a little more expendable. So I guess I have a two part question:

1) McCutchen or Stanton if you have to keep one?

2) Does it make since to keep both Cutch and Stanton over Wright?

Your thoughts?

Wright and McCutchen. I like Stanton but he still ha things to prove where the other two don't. You also don't know how quickly if at all that Cabrera will gain 3B so don't expect it until it happens.

Stanton and McCutcheon. Two of the best young Ofs in the game right now.

I would do this too, but I like Wright the most of all of these players. I would just gamble as I've seen him fall a little too far. If you draft soon, try to get him back in the draft. If you don't draft soon ... ugh ... drop Stanton.

Miggy may not gain eligibility right away and may not get it at all. Leyland doesn't sound crazy about the idea. Don't get into the frame of mind that you have a 3B in him. You're still going to want to draft one early if you don't keep Wright. If he does gain eligibility it will be a nice problem to have.

very true. i just like what stanton and cutch bring to the table, but if healthy and with the fences brought in, wright could have a big year. my fear is that he will get traded to colorado at the break and go on a 4 year tear where he is as dominant as he was in 07.

problem is ive kept him for possibly 4 years now and i havent seen him get back to that form since.
