Freeman or Howard

Postby mlymon77 » Thu Jul 05, 2012 12:32 pm

Is Freddie Freeman worth keeping, or should I drop him and take a chance on a returning Ryan Howard (on the WW)?

It all depends on whether or not this is a keeper league.
Of course, personally, I would take Freeman as I never trust Howard healthy..power but never any average.
Freeman will ultimately give you a bit of everything.

Freeman is a bit too vanilla for my likes, but I think I'd take him over Howard ROS. Need more info on your placement in offensive cats, scoring system and league specs to be sure, but in a vacuum I'd stand pat for now ;-D

Kind of how I feel. If you need the HR/RBI production, then Howard. If you need a steady option across the board, then Freeman. It's tough to know what to really expect from Howard ROS, but his upside is greater, IMO.
