who is the better keeper Tulo or Bruce?

Postby bodsquad » Sun Jun 24, 2012 8:33 pm

My question really is about the next 4-5 years.
Bruce is younger. So that is a ittle plus.
He doesn't get hurt as much.
Tulo is SS major plus.
My current SS is Jed Lowrie. with Bonfacio on the DL.
Tulo has a higher OBP.
Tulo is out another 7 weeks or so.

On a side note because i would be giving up Pedro Alverez. Is he going to be a big player or not. I really don't need him with Wright and Zimmerman at 3b. I may try and get both. I think I would offer an OF. I have Chris Young, Morse, Gardner, Joyce, Bj Upton, Quentin. I also need to throw in a closer Broxton or Myers. Which ones would you give up. the rest would be draft picks and prospects. any input appreciated. I have a hard time evaluating keepers, since this league traded verlander for chapman. I still don't get it.

wow, no posts.

The owner would much rather trade bruce anyway. He has offered bruce for Prospect Olt, 5th rd pick and broxton.
Seems like a no brainer right. I have to jump at it. It is a keeper league. Olt is a top 50 prospect. He has hit 20hr 58 rbi, .414obp at AA. 5th rd pick in a keeper league does not have much value. Broxton could get traded before the deadline and has little value in the future. Bruce should be very good in five years. He is only 25. Olt is 24. Seems like a no brainer again. I have wright and zimmerman.

any thoughts.

I like Tulo over Bruce.

But I would definitely do that trade to get Bruce. You are getting a proven guy in Bruce for an unproven Olt.

Help me?

You have to take that deal. A lot of times guys get enamored with prospects and then end up waiting and waiting and they never pan out. Get Bruce, he has proven he can carry a team when he's hot.

Take a look here please:
