Bruce, I Desmond or Sale in a keeper? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Sun Feb 23, 2014 1:12 am

This has become my biggest debate yet. They are all so close in rankings virtually everywhere I look. It is now time to gather as many opinions on this topic as possible.

10 team league (23 total roster spots (14bats/9pitchers))
Head to Head 5x5 (OBP replaces AVG)

keep 6 (no restrictions)
my top 5 thus far
- Miguel Cabrera, Andrew McCutchen, Paul Goldscmidt, Adam Wainwright, Dustin Pedroia -

Then I get to take one of Chris Sale, Jay Bruce and Ian Desmond

Who should I keep and why?

Every answer you will receive good help in return. I just need to finalize my keepers. :-)

But i could see keeping Bruce and Sale, for the overrated Pedroia.

You think? Why is Pedroia so overrated? I am not disputing it, but am curious.

Who would I target as a 2B?

Not sure he ever gets back to the 20 hr, 25 sb guy he was.
He's still very good, in average and runs/rbis.
I just prefer a 35hr 100 rbi guy, and a top 10 SP.
If you want Pedroia, keep Bruce.
