In a non-keeper, I have no problem dropping belt. He won't get regular playing time, because his manager's an idiot.

But in a keeper like yours, you have to hold onto him for future value.

I agree with the above post. In a non-keeper It's a no brainer. In a keeper league along with the draft value I say hold on. Maybe wait a couple weeks and see how it pans out (if he's still there). It's hard at the start of the season to be patient. Sometimes it pays off. Sometimes it doesn't. (Take this with a grain of salt though. I have no keeper league experience.)

I would hold onto belt. If you are really looking at going for it this year, maybe find someone who is not and trade. Because Belt's value in a keeper is still high. You can get more for Belt than a Reimold.

lol at belt starting every day, bruce bochy is a complete moron so that isn't gonna happen. belt has very little value in anything but dynasty leagues right now.

This is a keeper league, thats why I am still holding on to him. What do you think I should do though? I could also just drop Kelly Johnson, but I like having him as Kipnis insurance just in case either one is slumping.

I don't know. It's a tough call. I think personally I'd hang on to Belt in a keeper. If it was a one year, that would be another story. Thanks for the help on mine.

with only 7 keepers there's no way i'd waste a roster spot on him all year just to have him next season.

it'd take a huff injury or for him to play bad enough for sabean to release him. i'd be surprised if it happened, but it could just be my giants pessimism.
