a good situation to have - cutch, votto, or upton in keeper?

Postby gopirates! » Wed Jul 11, 2012 9:48 pm

Hello all

It's been a while since I've written up a post in the fantasy baseball cafe, but it's good to see that people have not lost passion for the hobby. Anyway, I got a hella predicament I'm in for by the end of the year. Put yourself in my shoes. I am in a league where you can keep three players: you can keep a player whom was drafted between rounds 1-12, one player from rds 13-24, and one FA keeper. I drafted Mike Moustakas in the 13th round and picked up Trevor Bauer as my free agent. Those two are locks. The FUN part for me? Who should I keep from the players I drafted between rounds 1-12? Here's my roster:

C - Jarrod Saltalamacchia
1B - Joey Votto
2B - Dan Uggla
3B - Ryan Zimmerman
SS - Hanley Ramirez
OF - Andrew McCutchen
OF - Justin Upton
OF - Jason Heyward
Util - Mike Moustakas
SP - CJ Wilson
SP - Adam Wainwright
SP - Ryan Dempster
SP - Trevor Bauer
SP - Dan Haren
SP - Mat Latos
SP - AJ Burnett
SP - Doug Fister
SP - Jeff Karstens

My question I'm posing to you, dear readers: which player that I drafted between rounds 1-12 do you advise me keeping? Keep in mind that I can keep this player for the next 20 years if I want to. I think I've narrowed it down to Votto, Cutch, or Upton. Heyward is in there tempting me. But even still I think those 3 are better options. Give a brother a shout out, I'd love to hear everyone's opinions, projections for not only these players, but other players listed. Now that I have some free time, I'll be on here a lot more. So if you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours. Thanks guys ;-D

Votto. I could see an argument for Cutch, but probably would say Votto. Definitely no for Upton. I think something is wrong with him, as there's gotta be a reason his name is being brought up in trade talks. Teams dont just give up young studs, if in fact he is a stud.

Narrowing it down to Votto and Cutch is a no-brainer. I will go with Cutch here cause i think he can bring a little more to the table than Vots..but, Vots is a safer pick with almost the same number.....ok, this is hard!! Win-win either way lol
