How many do you keep every season? My concern, with this being H2H, is that Wainwright is going to tire for your playoffs. I may be more inclined to just keep Jennings.

Think you could do better than Quentin/Vogelsong
I would keep Jennings you have little OF depth to work with.

They both come high risk and high upside. I think I'd go with Jennings though.

I think I go with the upside of Jennings over the upside of Wainwright.

I would take Wainwright. He has already proved that he can be a top 5 SP and a yearly Cy Young candidate. Jennings hasn't proved anything and I think he will struggle this year. It is a great time to buy on Wainwright who will be on an innings limit but should be productive when he pitches.

I would stick with Jennings. I think he profiles as a better keeper long term. That and I don't know if your team can afford the hit to OF.

Looks like a mixed bag. I don't envy your position!
