Pick 1- Sale $5,Bumgarner $10, or Kimbrel $10 (WHIR)

Postby rjforlife » Mon Feb 04, 2013 5:21 pm

Sale would be $5 next season, Bumgarner would be $10, Kimbrel would be $10. Standard H2H 10 team league. The following season Sale would be $10, Bum or Kimbrel would jump to $20. I'm just not sure how to weigh the risks/rewards of each.

I like Sale here, he's a nice, cheap option and the AL Central still isn't a great division. The new NL West is probably equal, so you're not losing anything as far as opponents with Bumgarner, and I don't trust Kimbrel as much on a good team in a good division that probably won't see a lot of easy saves, especially late in the year when ATL usually rests pitchers a bit. He had a nice season last year and I'd give him another chance until he proves you wrong (and hopefully he won't.)

How dare you discredit Kimbrel. What he did was no fluke. See though with the jumps that is a little high. I like Sale for 5 and then 10 you basically get most value here with Sale and he's a good low end ace high end #2 what's not to like?

You know, I love Mad Bum and Kimbrel but you have to go with your best value here and its Sale and this really IMO isn't up for discussion. ;-D

I love Bumgarner, but Sale is in the same class and cheaper. He gets a few more K's and just needs to be a little more durable to rack up innings.

I am in agreement with everyone else, keep Sale. He has more value than the other two and will still be a great price next year.

Thanks for your help on mine.

Why can't you keep all 3?
Kimbrel is the best closer by far, i'm keeping him.
Bumgarner next
Sale had a 121 inning increase, which worries me.
Generally, a 50 inning spike doesn't bode well for pitchers.

I think I would keep Bumgarner. I might be the odd man out here but he is an Ace and isn't that much more than Sale and I agree with Hootie that Sale might regress a little this season.

please help

We can keep 6. I'm looking at:

Adam Jones $10
Starlin Castro $10
Edwin Encarnacion $5
Stephen Strasburg $10
Jason Heyward $17
