CARGO or ALTUVE? WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Tue Aug 05, 2014 3:07 pm

Been offered Cargo for Altuve, but my biggest concern is health...I am looking to next season, so whom would you rather have as a potential keeper for 2015?

10 team H2H keeper league. We keep 6 per year.
My team:
C - Rosario
1B - Goldy
2B - Altuve
SS - Castro
3B - Miggy
OF - Cutch
OF - Heyward
OF - Puig
CI - Headley
MI - Escobar
Util - Gordon
Util - K Davis
B - M Adams
DL- Mauer
DL - Belt
NA - Baez

P - Strasburg
P - Cole
P - Bailey
P - T Bauer
P - Fister
P - Teheran
P - Soria
P - Papelbon
P - H Alvarez
P - Melancon
DL - Harvey

A year ago, we would have laughed at this choice. Now it's a tough one. Looking at your team, assuming you keep your best 6, I see 4 definite keepers (Goldy, Cutch, Miggy, Puig) and probably Strasburg. Would assume you'd keep either CArGo or Altuve as your 6th keeper.

I think I still lean towards CarGo. Much more of a 5 category player than Altuve. Yes, the health risk is there, but he's simply a better player if healthy. On the flip side, you're already keeping 2 outfielders, and it's much easier to find good OF production than it is 2B production, so that's the downside, but I think I still lean towards CarGo. He's still a 1st round pick (maybe 2nd round at worst). Altuve is probably a 4th round pick.

Would it be sweetened to get Kris Bryant back as well? Not going to keep him, but keep others from keeping him...

I also was considering keeping Baez being a keeper, but 6 slots isnt many.

I personally would keep Altuve. Even when active Cargo usually has some sort of lingering injury that hinders his value. Altuve on the other hand is an up and coming player who hasn't reached his prime and will arguably be ranked as the best 2nd baseman next year in a position that won't be deep next year.

Please help me when you have the chance:

What a difficult question. My guess is that Cargo will go in the 2nd round, and Altuve one round later next year. Obviously the upside with Cargo is 1st round material. If he stays healthy. Altuve gives you elite performance at 2B. Then... Cargo might get traded (NYM) is a real possibility.

I would go for Altuve.

I'd rather have Cargo and you have Dee Gordon and Baez you could keep as your 2b both are as valuable.
