Keeper: Cano or Votto

Postby IrishDrunk » Wed Mar 20, 2013 7:22 am

I'm over analyzing this, I'm sure, but, looking for advice on my last keeper in my 12 team H2H points league (each team keeps three total keepers).

Cano is the #1 2B, but has a suspect team around him, while Votto's double knee surgery worries me (but should it after six plus months?)

Thanks for any advice!

Who else do you have that you can afford to even contemplate letting a first rounder walk? Both Votto and Cano are pretty much no-brainer first rounders.

Agreed. There are only three players I'd keep over Cano (Trout, Miggy, Braun) and another two over Votto (Cutch & Kemp.) So if you have any combo of them, I understand the dilemma. If not, I really don't know why you wouldn't want to keep them both

I'd take Cano and draft a good 1b.

Cano

Would like to know your other keepers that require dropping Votto

I'd keep both, unless you have Miguel Cabrera or Mike Trout on your team.

Thanks for the responses, everyone.

We have a franchise rule which restricts me from keeping BOTH Cano and Votto, that's why it's one or the other.

My other keepers are King Felix and Andrew McCutchen.

I could potentially punt Felix and keep both Cano and Votto, but, pitching is crazily kept in our league (to the point where dropping Felix would probably put me at a disadvantage getting an ace...).

SO, if you had to chose only one, which one would it be?
