Kershaw or Hamilton?

Postby fast dogs » Wed Feb 13, 2013 3:18 am

just traded for the first pick of the draft and don't want to screw this up. they both completed 5 year league contracts and will be elig to be kept 5 more years. 5X5 Roto, I can shape the rest of my keeper roster around whoever I pick ( have Cargo, Beltre, others) so I'm mainly looking for the best next few years from these 2. Big age edge to Kershaw and he's the safer option? It is just tough to pass up elite offensive guys who can put up #'s like Hamilton...

It is close but I'd probably go with Kershaw here.

I'm going with Kershaw also. Like you said, age is a big factor and some are predicting Hamilton's numbers to drop a little now that he's out of Texas.

Another +1 for Kershaw here. The risk that comes with Hamilton is just not worth what you probably had to give up for that pick.

Wow this is tough, but considering the age factor and the fact that you can't screw this pick up you should prob just go with the safer option.

So I would go with Kershaw.
