Help Choosing Last Keeper - WHIR Guaranteed

Postby RyeWhiskey » Sun Mar 04, 2012 5:25 pm

12 Team, H2H, Standard Stat, 9 keepers, money league

My first 8 keepers:
M Cabrera (1B - Det)
B Phillips (2B - Cin)
R Zimmerman (3B - Was)
R Braun (OF - Mil)
J Upton (OF - Ari)
M Holliday (OF - StL)
D Hudson (SP - Ari)
M Moore (SP - TB)

Need to choose one more out of:
D Jeter (SS - NYY)
A Gordon (OF - KC)
M Young (1B, 2B, 3B - Tex)
SP - B McCarthy (SP - Oak)
SP - M Scherzer (SP - Det)

I'm leaning between Gordon and Young. Young has multi-position eligibility but Gordon will probably produce better numbers at the Util position. Need help choosing this last keeper.

Leave a link - will get back to you with 24 hrs for sure.

Thanks!

Go with Gordon. It has taken him longer than expected to start producing but he finally has. You are in a keeper league and Young is getting long in the tooth and is in the regression years. You didn't say how long the keepers can be kept, but if it is longer than one or two years the upside from Gordon begins to really play a big park.

BTW, nice set of keepers.

Keepers can be kept indefinitely.

Gordon

I would keep Young over Hudson, but it's close.

I like Hootie's idea.... Keep Gordan and Young!

Thanks for your post.

Doesn't make sense to keep Gordon and Young as I would have to platoon them at my Util spot. I already have MCab-Phillips-Zimmerman at the infield and Braun-Upton-Holliday in the outfield.

Gordon then, mainly due to age.
