Keeper Conundrum. WHIR!!

Postby Oman0123 » Mon Feb 18, 2013 8:52 pm

Thought I would have this figured out by now but I just cant decide on who to keep.

I get to keep 2 Bats, 1 SP and 1 RP

Verlander is my SP (Sale, Medlin in distant 2nd)
Paplebon is my RP

Keep two out of four

Fielder
Posey
Hamilton
Harper

Fielder is my lock.

Thoughts? And of course WHIR!

Harper! If I wasnt biased. But with his potential he could be in the 40 40 club in a few years and carry any team. But for the next 2 years I would go with Fielder and Posey. Posey is pretty much in a class of his own at C and Fielder's Fielder, a potential first round pick and as consistent as they come.

I was leaning toward Fielder and Posey because I feel its the safe bet. But I dont want to miss out on Harper and what could be. I was thinking I could target Harper early in the draft and hopefully get him back. I dont think I could get Posey back if I let him go.

Im open to other strategies of course haha.

Fielder and Posey are def the safe choices.

I would also go Posey for sure, nothing worse than ending up with a platoon Catcher after you,ve had the best. C is the weakest position by far ....

Depends how long you get to get keep them.

I would say Harper is the greatest of them if you can keep indefinitely. And then Posey.

If you are worried more about production this year and the next 2-3 go Fielder and Posey.

Harper will still have another solid year but Fielder is just gonna be the better offensive force the next couple years.

As long as Fielder and Miggy are in the same lineup together, he's a keeper. I'd go with Posey as well. I'm sure Harper is going to impress, but Posey has proven himself at a traditionally weak position. I don't know what your league format is, but catcher seems a little deeper than in past years. If you're in an 8-10 team league, I think the argument for Harper is a little stronger. Still I think I'd go with Posey even then.

How many Catchers does your league start? If it is 2 per team Posey is your guy, he might be anyway. In 1 catcher leagues, everybody gets a good 1 this year

I would go Harper and Fielder.

Hamilton has too many red flags
Posey is great, but catchers take a beating and are rarely consistent. I am a Giant's fan, and while I expect him to play well, I don't think there is any way he repeats those numbers from last year.

As others have pointed out, though, if you are in a 2-catcher league, it might be worth the risk to take Posey over Fielder.


By the way, does Medlen count as a RP in your league? If so, I would take him over Papelbon in a heartbeat.
