Keeper Advice WHIR Montero or Morales ( DH )

Postby nh1977 » Sat Mar 24, 2012 12:21 pm

5x5 Roto "deep Keeper " League. 12 members 500 salary. 15 players can be kept. I am in a pickle with Morales 6r or J.Montero 15r ( who should eventually should gain eligibilty at C.) I can only keep 1 as DH . I have no idea - Safeco scares me a lil for Montero and Morales ( health and Scosica constant line up Juggling ) , I need some input who I should retain.

Here is my Team
C P Josh Johnson 20
C P price 13
1 Cabrera 81r P pineda 15
2 Johnson 12r P Garza 28 ( bad value in a long term contract )
mi P Hudson 18
ss reyes 42 P
3b Beltre 43 P
ci Lind 15 p Legaue 1r
of cruz 15

I agree with Hootie. Jesus is going to be a monster...may not hit the 40HRs we all dreamed of ans Yanks fans now that he is in safeco...but I would be shocked if he could not hit 20+ HRs and 30+ Dbls while hitting like .276ish this year (with the caveat that he has absolutely destroyed every level he has been at with only a short adjustment...and last years drop was due to his being bored at repeating AAA when most teams would have found a spot for him) .

And as a keeper league...just understand that as a hitter Jesus has been compared to Miggy Cabrerra and Manny (bat not personality)...so the pro scouts think he is capable of .310+ .600+ Slugging/ 30+HR etc. on avg for his career

Any help with mine would be appreciated

Montero. You just don't know how Morales will hold up over the entire season.

Go Montero.

If its a league where the positional requirement is high, like 25 games at C or something like that, then I'd at least hesitate about it. But I'd probably still pick Jesus, especially in a keeper league

Montero. Morales is hurt and is no sure guarantee to play or be the player he was. Add in Montero's potential, cheaper price tag and far scarcer position and this is an easy call. There is risk either way, but there is no reason to pick someone like Morales over Montero here.

Thanks for the input guys. Think I know where I am going on this --now If my commishiner will let me stash Morales on the Bench , due to not being on a MLB roster last year ( i'll be laughing ) but someone in my league is making a scene ( think he covets Morales ?)
