Need last keeper decided! WHIR

Postby exm » Fri Sep 06, 2013 5:45 pm

H2H 14 player league, keep 5.

4 Keepers for sure
- A Jones CF
- Y Puig RF
- J Upton LF
- E Encarnacion 1B/3B

Pick 1
- J Segura SS
- D Pedroia 2B
- C Sale SP

I am really leaning Segura. Pedroia is on the decline. Sale is an ace, but I always value batters>pitchers. Thoughts and WHIR

14 team league, having an elite SS is just a huge advantage. Segura's youth+production+SS puts him over the top for me.

I'd Keep these players if I were you:

Jones (OF)
Puig (OF)
Encarnacion (3B)
Segura (SS)
Pedroia (2B)

The outfield is very deep, so I'd rather fill that 2B slot with Pedroia.

Segura would be who I would keep. His position and age gives him the most value in a keeper league out of these players in my opinion.

I agree with the above: Upton is no longer a keeper. Keep both Pedroia and Segura. The MI is quite shallow and 2 elite guys will be to your advantage.

I rather keep Sale over Pedroia. Pedroia's numbers are pretty average this season.

As far as Upton is concerned: I think he's worth hanging onto for one more season. His Yahoo rank is 75 and I feel he has much room for improvement.

Pedroia will still go higher in next year's draft than Segura and Sale. Segura has cooled off with the bat even though he's a bigger threat for steals, but Pedrioa has still outscored him in H2H points this season and will be a consistent threat for 15 HR and 20 SB again next year.

I am sure Pedroia will draft higher! But will he have a higher rank at the end of 2014? I understand Segura is a big risk. He easily could be the next H-Ram. Or the next E Nunez...

He's more like Elvis Andrus with a little better BA and RBI.
I still go with Segura here.
