Keep Cespedes?

Postby octagon999 » Mon Sep 03, 2012 11:48 am

I'm in a 12 team 4-keeper league. Our regular season just ended, and I was scanning the team thinking about keepers for next year, and my biggest question is Cespedes. He's not the 4th best guy on my team today, but he's only going to get better, and I could see him being great in my OF along with Kemp. Do I keep a guy I think will be great in the future (but anything can happen anytime to anyone) or go with the 4th best person on my team next year and let the future take care of itself?

Kemp, Beltre, Longoria definite keepers. Also considering Brent Anderson or Bumgarner #4. Doubt I'll keep Reyes or Brandon Phillips tho they both outscored Cespedes this year. Garrett Jones had a great year too, but doubt I'll keep him.

Thanks for any help on this!

I would keep Bumgarner and draft cespedes high next year. Depends on how much value you get in your pitching cats

Bumgarner
And that's coming from a Dodgers fan, ha.

I could see a case for Reyes being made but I think you have to at least keep 1 SP.

Bumgarner's (SF) line as of tonight: IP 192, W/L 14/10, 175K, ERA 3.32, WHIP 1.10
Chris Sale's (CWS) line as of tonight: IP 175, W/L 17/6, 173K, ERA 2.78, WHIP 1.06

I love 'em both, which is why I drafted them both at the beginning of the season. Should I keep Bum, or is Chris Sale an even better keeper?

I have no idea what their sabremetrics are so I don't know if there are other factors out there. Definitely would like your comments (which have been great so far!)
