Keeper: Asdrubal or Desmond

Postby Lowrobinson » Tue Mar 13, 2012 11:48 am

In our league we get to keep three guys not included in ESPN's top 30 players. Although if you keep them and they end up in the top 30 the following year you can continue keeping them. So far I am keeping Nelson Cruz and C.C. Sabathia and have to decide between Cabrera and Jennings. I have the 8th pick and think I'll be grabbing Hanley but we have MI slot along with two IF positions and of course Hanley will be getting 3B elegibility within a week or two. So who ought I keep?

Keep Jennings. Honestly though, you should give some thought to keeping Asdrubal over Cruz. Nelson will never live up to the hype due to injuries and with him getting up in age, I see last year's numbers as his ceiling. Consequently, ACab has a good chance on posting better value than him for this upcoming season.

Thought this as well. Have to go with Jennings. Both are likely not to live up to expectations but Jennings has a better chance.

I agree. I am not buying the hype with either of these guys, but if I had to choose I would go with Jennings.
