Last Offensive Keeper

Postby andrewkeefe » Fri Mar 09, 2012 4:28 am

5x5 roto vanilla. Already keeping Bruce (7) and Bourn (8).

I have:

Beltre (2)
Stubbs (16)
Beltran (27)

Who do I keep? Beltre obviously best player- but not a value at 2, and I could probably get him back. Beltran a bargain at 27? Stubbs great skill set at 16?

You tell me.

I like Stubbs as well. Very dangerous power/speed combination, capable of putting up a monster season but playing time, K rate makes him super volatile.

I like Beltran for a \/alue at 27. You know he'll miss time but when he plays he'll be good

I grudgingly say Stubbs. I like Beltran and he has very good value in the 27th but in a keeper its hard to hold onto Beltran with his age and injury history.

Stubbs offers a nasty combo of power and speed which I like, but you are already keeping Bruce, which means 2 out of your 3 keepers will likely hit below .260. So do it, but be prepared to address BA on your team.

I'd go with Beltran. He's the best value for the rounds IMO. If you like Stubbs you should be able to get him back in the draft.

Beltran is best value here, take him. He's got one more topish year left in him and besides you can rock the house with that. Stubbs is a 25/20 guy but with an abysmal BA, solid value too, but you already have Bruce so take Beltran. He'll hit 290/29/106 I have a feeling.
