Pitchers: Alex Cobb vs. James Shields

Postby matty_icend » Sat Mar 15, 2014 8:08 pm

This is a keeper league standard 5x5 stats. Im wondering if I should keep Cobb or Shields? I really like Cobb, but if I keep Shields Im planning on using hiim to trade away because he has the better trade name. Also, I'm not sure if Cobb will have a stud follow up year after his breakout year last year.

So.....

Cobb or Shields????

Guess it depends what you would try to get with Shields. I agree he probably has the better trade name, but I think Cobb will give you better numbers this year.

So you think Cobb will have a great follow up year? Why is that?

Shields has a proven track record, and I believe he's in his contract year. Go for Shields. I think Cobb is being overdrafted

I see no reason why Cobb will get worse this year. Honestly I don't think these two will be that far apart, but Cobb is younger and plays for a better team.
