Keeper: Pineda or Pence

Postby jd2900 » Thu Feb 23, 2012 2:31 pm

I am in a 12 team, head to head league and I am having trouble deciding whether I should keep Hunter Pence or Michael Pineda. I drafted Pence in the 14th round two years ago. I picked up Pineda as a free agent last year. If I keep Pence, I will lose my 14th round draft pick. If I keep Pineda I will not lose a draft pick. I am also planning on keeping Yovani Gallardo (3rd round) and David Price (12th round). Please let me know what you think. WHIR. Here is the point distribution for the league:

Scoring for Batting categories
1B Singles 1 point
2B Doubles 2 points
3B Triples 3 points
BB Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS Caught Stealing -1 point
CYC Hitting for the Cycle 10 points
HP Hit by Pitch 1 point
HR Home Runs 4 points
KO Strikeouts (Batter) -0.5 points
R Runs 1 point
RBI Runs Batted In 1 point
SB Stolen Bases 2 points

Scoring for Pitching Categories
BBI Walks Issued (Pitchers) -.5 points
BS Blown Saves -2.5 points
CG Complete Games 5 points
ER Earned Runs -1 point
HA Hits Allowed -.75 points
HB Hit Batsmen -.5 points
INN Innings 2 points
K Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
L Losses -3 points
NH No-Hitters 10 points
QS Quality Starts 3 points
S Saves 7 points
SO Shutouts 5 points
W Wins 7 points

Tough one, but since you already are keeping Gallardo and Price I'd keep Pence. How many years do you get to keep him?

Thanks for the response. There is no limit on how many years we can keep a player.

I like both, but I'd take Pence by a mile.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I would keep both over Gallardo as a 3rd rounder, and I love me some Gallardo for this year, but he is nowhere near a 3rd round cost.

To keep it brief, I'd be all over Raider's advice. Good luck, but you'll need less of it sticking with the advice.

Keep both and drop Gallardo.

Worst case, you'd realistically be able to draft him again with your 3rd rounder. If everyone is keeping 3 players a few of those are probably going to cost them a 1st or 2nd (if they have Miggy, Albert, Tulo, etc) and your pick is somewhere in the mid 3rd, that means there are probably 20 or so draft picks before you'd have the chance to pick him, and chances are there are probably 30-40 players available that would warrent a draft pick over Gallardo.
