Last keeper: Crawford or Harper?

Postby Bea Arthur » Fri Mar 09, 2012 10:43 pm

20 team h2h. 5x5 (OBP vs avg). 5 keepers, no term limit.

My keepers: Votto, Cano, Jennings, Matt Moore, Crawford.

I could deal Crawford for the first pick of the 4th round and get Harper for my 3rd round pick (9th of that round). Do I do that or stand pay with Crawford. Part of me thinks Crawford could bounce back but another part is worried about injuries. And I'd have Harper for years to come but would be without him til June possibly. That said I have a stockpile of picks (3 second rounders, 2 fourth rounders) where I could make up for either Crawford or Harper being out for a while. Thoughts? WHIR!

I say Harper, since you can keep without a yr limit. Crawford will bounce back, but his speed will slip over the next couple years and you will not get a chance at Harper again.

Harper can be had again with only five keepers... Hold Crawford.

Play for this year with one eye on the future.
Do not play for the future with one eye on this year.

That sums up my general keeper balance philosophy. Go with Crawford and pray for bounce back.
Draft tonight! Please help! viewtopic.php?f=26&t=442770
