Keep Cueto, Machado, Gallardo, or Granderson?

Postby Stlcardinals100 » Fri Jan 11, 2013 1:54 pm

I am in a 7 plAyer keeper league and I am debating who to keep for my last two players. My last 4 players I am thinking about keeping are Manny Machado, Yovani Gallardo, Curtis Granderson and JOhnny Cueto. What do you all think?

It's sorta hard to tell you which two to keep without looking at your other keepers, so that we know what positions you already got covered. Post the guys you for sure are going to keep.

This. Plus your keeper rules. Can you keep someone for as long as you want?

I wouldn't keep Chapman. I'll replace him with Cueto and make my other final two keepers Machado and Gallardo.

Ya you can keep them for as long as you want. I want to keep chapman though. There has been rumors that he will be a starter this year and I believe he will be a stud.

How Granderson isn't ahead of everyone on this list is beyond me. Ellsbury is fairly overrrated and depending on how many OF'ers you can play at the same time I would consider not even keeping him.

1. C. Granderson
2. A. Gonzalez
3. J. Upton
4. M. Holliday
5. A. Chapman (hoping that he starts)
6. J. Cueto
7a. J. Ellsbury (unless you filled out your OF with the 3 OF'ers above)
7b. Y. Gallardo

I like Machado a lot, but with only 7 keepers I would want the best 7 players for 2013. Machado just misses the hump, IMO. Although, I would have no issues with you keeping him over Gallardo if you felt strongly about him. I do feel that you could fill your SP spots easier in the draft.

Ditch Chapman and Machado. Chapman might be really good but I think he will be too limited with innings counts and other things to be worth keeping over these guys. Machado is a really good prospect but I am not going to keep him ahead of good major league talent. I love to speculate on the next great thing but too often that player doesn't live up to expectations or it takes them longer than we expect for them to get to those expectations.

I agree with this down to no 6, I would take Ellsbury and Machado as the last two

I would keep Granderson over Ellsbury, but that's just my unsolicited input.

Per your question, I wouldgo with Machado and Cueto.
