Konerko 34 or Dunn 20

Postby colt4523 » Sat Jan 05, 2013 10:47 pm

Who would you rather have? I have both on my team and will probably keep one at first if I cannot trade for an upgrade. AL only h2h 12 team 6x6 (holds and xbh) $260 cap keep 8. My other keepers so far are:
Kipnis 5
Trout 5
Moore 5
Astrubal 19
Hunter 16
Reed 14

Dunn and Konerko will be my 7th keeper than I have to trade for another or pick from the rest of my team which consists of:
Rivera 24
Olt 3
Pedroia 44
Youk 28
Iwakuma 3

So who should I keep? Konerko or Dunn?

I don't like either guy, but I trust Konerko more.

I would like to commit to Olt, but with Berkman signing today he doesn't have a job & could get moved and most rumors have involved NL teams. I'd probably just go for broke and get Pedroia. You have some lower costs with you other players and could absorb the cost. Mo wouldn't be terrible either.

Thanks for the help. I think I worded my second part weird. I already have pedroia, olt, rivera, iwakuma, and Youk. Pedroia seems extremely high at 44 and I already plan on keeping Kipnis at 5. I believe Konerko is probably the 6th ranked 1b but his numbers were pretty bad last year. Dunn had better numbers in all categories except avg (obviously). There should be some big bats in the draft (Prince, Pujols, Reyes) but a lot of teams are cutting salaries and the cost to get one of the big guys will be high. Prince and Pujols went for 65 and 70 last year.

Olt seems like he is going to be worthless this year. Even if he doesn't get traded, he doesn't have a starting spot anymore. The berkman trade killed all of his trade value for me :~(

Keep Dunn and spend high on a Fielder-Pujols type.

Help with mine?

I would keep Dunn personally. High risk/reward guy but at 20 bucks can't beat it. Wouldn't keep Konerko at 34.

thanks for your help with mine

Thanks for helping with mine.


I'd probably go with Dunn, but I would then have to get guys that offset his batting average.

I was thinking since it is head to head that Dunn's average wouldn't be as detrimental since avg is reset every week.

I would keep Dunn or PK. that 14.00 difference could be huge . I also think Dunn gets his average up to more normal . Something in the .250-.260 range. He turned it around with the power from 2011 . I think he continues the improvement in Ba.
Thanks for your help with mine. ;-D

I agree With colt4523. $34 is a little high for Konerko. I would put him in the low 20's at best in my AL only (12 tm) league.

Another vote for Dunn here. Don't love either, but it Dunn seems to be at least a decent price at 20 while Konerko is a little high for my liking. I would take Dunn, his Bad average and the $14 bucks you would save.
