Castro for Strasburg? WHIR

Postby dod959 » Sat Mar 10, 2012 4:54 pm

In a keeper where you keep 20 guys a year who would you rather have.

MY SSs are Reyes and Hanley (for now).

My best SP is CJ Wilson.

Given my circumstances who would you take and ALSO who would you take in a vacuum. Thanks.

I like Strasburg, as i think Castro is a bit overrated.

I think I'd trade Castro for Strasburg. He would be the least injury prone of all the guys you mentioned, which would be my only worry.

As for in a vacuum. Maybe Reyes, except that I tend to stay away from injury prone guys in dynasty leagues.

With Reyes rostered already, I'll take Strasburg in a deep keeper, especially if your best pitcher is CJ Wilson.

Agree with Strasburg since you are very weak at SP

Easy call here- Strasburg. In both your situation and a vacuum.
