Easy question, keep Cutch or Braun

Postby rjforlife » Mon Oct 29, 2012 7:02 am

Cutch would cost $22, Braun would be $28. I could keep either for 3 more years at small increases in salary. Standard 12 team H2H.

Braun is worth the premium, IMO.

Braun for sure. Definitely worth that extra $6.

Gotta take Braun here.

Thanks guys. I was leaning Braun there but wanted to double-check and be sure Cutch wasn't worth the slight discount.

I agree with the above. If Cutch had kept up the SB i could see going Cutch. Pretty much didnt steal bases in second half.

Braun. Price is about the same and a sure fire top 5 pick year to year barring an injury (or HGH lol). McCutchen broke out this year but does not have the established track record making him a slight risk to regress.

Braun easily. I don't see how Cutch's .375 BABIP this year is repeatable. He also spiked in HR/FB while his FB rate actually went down. And a big part of his value is his steals, which means you have to be concerned about his 62.5% success rate.
