Keep Longoria or Bautista? WHIR

Postby ROC AllStars » Wed Mar 20, 2013 9:47 pm

10 team H2H. 5 keepers, $100 salary cap using ESPN values.

Already keeping Posey and McCutchen. Not sure which injury risk to take on, Bautista or Longoria...

Also probably going to trade Hamilton for a 2nd round pick. Not a great return but better than nothing, I'm probably not keeping him.

What are the prices on them? I'd likely go Bautista either way unless Longoria is significantly cheaper.

I like Bautista a little better. His BABIP was terrible at .215 this past year. I don't think there's anyway that happens again, whereas Longoria had a .313 which won't be any higher.

As far as your Hamilton situation, I don't know what to make of it from limited info.

I like Bautista here. His production fell off somewhat last year from the year previous but I see him coming back and playing like he did two years ago. Unless Bautista is a lot more then Longoria, i'd definitely take Bautista in this situation. Or you could always keep Longoria and not trade Hamilton. Those would be the two options i'd look at.

Hope I helped!

Bautista is $26 and Longoria is $25.

Cutch is $34 and Posey is $28, which leaves me with enough space for either Longoria or Bautiata.

Hamilton is 26, so he's pretty much off the table. So trading him for a pick seems to make sense, since I get nothing otherwise...
