Tough, but I think Harper is an MVP candidate this year and Strasburg a Cy Young candidate. Longo every year COULD be an MVP but with the injury risk I say take the two Nationals.

Would help to know the league format and the rest of your keepers, as well as draft position. That said, I'd always favor offense for keepers and take Longoria/Harper. If Strasburg will be tops on the board by a landslide and there's no limit on how many years you can keep someone, then maybe consider Strasburg/Harper.

It honestly depends on your needs. Both have strengths that the other doesn't. Just my opinion:

R: Wash
HR: Longo by maybe 5-7 at most
RBI: Longo by maybe 20
SB: Harper by 15-20
AVG: Longo more likely to hit closer to .300, Harper maybe .275 while he still adjusts

All things considered, give me the future MVP in Harper 10 out 10 times, ESPECIALLY in a keeper league
