Votto and Kemp, it depends on the position you need.

Votto>CarGo

Thought I would elaborate a bit more on my opinions. Kemp is a risk/reward guy. We have seen what he can do when he's healthy but we have also seen the other end. If you believe he can stay healthy he is a 5 tool guy that can help you in every single category, thus making me lean towards him over votto.

The exact same thing applies with cargo but it is a bit closer, but the 5 category potential that cargo provides is something that I just can't pass up on. You can't go wrong with either though.

Hope this helps and thanks for the reply.

I see myself going Votto, Kemp then Cargo.

Only because of health issues.... A small twist of wrist and I can elevate Kemp, but not Cargo.

In a vacuum (and in the long term)... I think I would stick with the 2011 rankings....Kemp, Votto, CarGo. I might adjust that depending on your roster needs and # of keepers...if you have a top 1B you are already keeping and you get more than 2 keepers...then I would take the two OF...both are studs.

Little help here? Thanks...

Well based on your post - it seems you can have both Kemp or Cargo and Votto and I'd take both whichever allows you to have either OF and the good 1b.

I'd take Votto, then Kemp, then Cargo. I feel like I know what Votto will do, Im not sure what Kemp is gonna give us this year. If he doesn't run, he's not up to par with Votto IMO. Cargo is great, but his splits makes him 3rd in my book. And I will say I'm nitpicking here. All 3 are studs and you can't really go wrong with any of them.

Here's mine

For the sake of clarification...

I currently own Votto.

I can have either Kemp or CarGo for him.

It is a keeper league.

Votto and Kemp both cast $40

Cargo costs $10.

I'm leaning toward keeping Votto, but I have to admit that Cargo at $10 is tempting.
