Keeper - CarGo or Harper?

Postby guyincognito » Tue Jul 10, 2012 12:12 pm

I'm out of it and looking to possibly improve my keepers for next year. There is no limitation on the keepers and nothing involved with draft picks or dollar value. It's just straight up keep 3 and that's it. I'm working on three deals that would net me Cabrera, Braun and Votto who would replace my current 3 keepers of Fielder, Kemp and Longoria. The snag I am hitting is the Votto piece. I know for sure that I can land Cabrera and Braun, but if I can't swing Votto, which is looking less and less likely, would you still do these deals if I could land either CarGo or B.Harper? And if you actually had the choice of either, would you opt for CarGo or Harper?

12 team, H2H, Keeper League (keep 3)

P Cats: W, K, QS, ERA, WHIP, HD, S, BBI, HA

SS - R.Furcal
3B - H.Ramirez
OF - Pence, BJ Upton, Viciedo
DH - D.Ortiz
Bench - Kemp, Ichiro
DL - E.Longoria
SP - D.Price, Y.Gallardo, J.Johnson, J.Beckett
RP - R.Soriano, S.Casilla, H.Bell, A.Aceves, A.Reed
Bench - T.Bauer, W.Rodriguez, Oswalt, B.Arroyo
DL - D.Haren

Looking @ your roster I think keeping Feilder, Kemp, & Longo for next year isn't that bad if you only keep 3. So I stand pat.

If I were to do anything I would go for a guy who is about to hit his prime: Cargo. Harper will be good but his prime is still some time away.

I'd package someone with Longoria for Harper. I honestly have very little confidence in Longoria anymore. He reminds me of Nelson Cruz ... amazing talent, but no good if he's hurt and on your DL.

Outside of that, I'd definitely keep Cargo over Longoria. Make no mistake, I am not a Longoria hater, and I'd take him over an A-Rod or Kung Fu Panda. But I just think he has a lot of baggage, esp for H2H.
