Better keepers- Trout/Encarnacion or Granderson/Strasburg?

Postby footballisbetter.com » Tue Jul 17, 2012 9:56 pm

I don't know if I will be able to land Trout, Granderson or Strasburg but I'm trying to sell my team for keepers.

This is a 12 team league with a $300 cap. Which side would you rather have? Trout ($7) and Encarnacion; or Granderson ($14) and Strasburg ($7). This is for next year only.

My current keepers for next year:
C- Posey $1
1B- Hosmer $9
3B- Lawrie $1
CI- Middlebrooks $8
U- Encarnacion $3
OF- D Jennings $13 for 2 additional years

I prefer Trout/Encarnacion due to the prices they've got.

I would take Trout of the three but he is going to be the hardest to get right now. Strasburg might be had especially as he gets closer to his innings limit but even then I doubt he will come all that cheap.

I know Trout has been incredible, but he has to slow down some right??

I'm thinking that when looking at my keepers with the intention of winning next year:

Grandy and Strasburg would be better with the rest of my keepers then Trout and Encarnacion? Thoughts? Leave a link.

Trout is the bes of the four, in terms of keeper value.

After him, I'd take Strasburg, then Granderson, the Encarnacion.
