Daniel Murphy or Travis Snider?

Postby wackadoodle » Sat Aug 18, 2012 12:17 pm

I need to cut one of them to make room. First year keeper league ($5 added each year to salary). NL only, 5x5 standard. Not that it matters but Snider is at $11 and Murphy is at $17. With his age I actually like Snider in Pittsburgh and think he can blossom. I need help in rbi's and sb's (not that either one can help much there). Thoughts?

The Pirates are going to give Snider a chance, he's young, cheaper, and has much more potential than Murphy. I'd stick with Snider... Neither guy is going to do much for you now, so you have to play with potential and Snider has a higher ceiling.

I'd rather Snider in a starting lineup, but I think it is incremental over other replacements. But, due to his eligibility at multiple positions, I'd rather have Murphy on my bench since he can be started whenever someone else has bad matchups/nagging injuries.

I agree totally but in this league there is no bench (only DL and minor spots) so that really isn't an issue unless someone gets hurt who he can be moved to which isn't the case here.
