Keep Pedroia or Granderson? WHIR!

Postby Geek » Sun Mar 04, 2012 12:54 pm

10 team keeper league, keep three. 5X5 roto except we use OPS instead of BA (hurts singles hitters and helps guys who draw walks or hit HRs)

Possible keepers:

Matt Kemp
Jose Bautista
Curtis Granderson
Dustin Pedroia
Jon Lester
Jered Weaver
Zack Greinke
Jonathan Papelbon

Kemp and Bautista are no-brainers.

As an alternative, should I try to trade for Tulowitzki, Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, or Robinson Cano?

Assuming no one wants to trade, who gets the third spot?

I'd try to package Grandy and Pedroia for Cano, Tulo would be nice. If not, Pedroia over Grandy for me, would rather play it safe. Dustin is still top 20 material with OPS over BA.

Pedroia of those listed.

If you can get a top 10 player, then do it. You have some big names that could land you any number of players.

I myself have been trying to ship Grandy just because of age and I am not truly believing last year. I would try to deal but if you cant I would stick with Granderson. I feel like in a trade later on he could still pull in more.

I would definitely try and trade up with some of those players listed, but if no one bites I'd keep Pedroia as my third.

Help with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=440518

You need to package a trade to upgrade your #3. If you can't Pedroia easy.
