Fifth Keeper in OBP League....WHIR

Postby hopsjr2 » Tue Feb 21, 2012 10:59 pm

Keeping McCutchen ($15), Fielder ($35), Santana ($11) and Strasburg ($9).

McCutch, Fielder and Santana provide an extremely strong base in OBP. My overall feeling is that cheap sources of power are easier to come by in this format while speed is at a higher premium.

My three primary options are Gardner ($15), Espinosa ($10) and Choo ($17).

Gardner - One of the only speedsters that is decent at OBP
Choo - Top 5-10 OBP outfielder would give me a very well rounded four offensive keepers
Espinosa - great combination of speed and power, sees a nice bump in OBP

Choo even though I don't like that price at all. Any chance you got a $1 player that you could instead?
