Keep Sale or Gomez? WHIR

Postby maf528 » Tue Aug 05, 2014 9:55 am

My seasons over already. Thinking about keepers for next year. I can only keep one more of Chris Sale or Carlos Gomez. I could also trade one of them for Nelson Cruz and keep him too. So how would you rank Sale, Gomez, Cruz for 2015?
(H2H std league, already keeping Goldschmidt, Kluber, Dee Gordon)

Without knowing who else you are keeping, I'd say Gomez. Pitchers are usually easier to find than 20/30 guys

My bad - missed the part about your keepers. Why can't you keep Sale over Kluber?

Thanks for the help on my question.

Unless your keepers are based on salaries (and assuming you got Gordon and Kluber for low prices) I would keep Sale instead of Kluber and Gomez as the additional. While Kluber is having a huge breakout that many (including myself) anticipated, he's still not doing as well as Sale and is a much bigger risk.

Keepers are actually based on tiers. So I am definitely keeping Goldy, Kluber, Gordon based on their tiers. But then I can only keep either Gomez or Sale from their tier...

I definitely would keep Gomez. I always lean towards position players vs. pitchers if they're about equal. Pitchers are much more injury prone and fickle year to year. Gomez can be a 5-category player, which is rare in fantasy. Would definitely push down that path. You can usually find pitchers in season and in the draft to pull your staff together.

I'd keep Gomez because I think he is less of a risk than Sale, but I would keep Sale over Cruz.

Help with mine?

Agree with all, keep Gomez. Can't really add to anything that has already been said. Thanks for help on mine.
