Better Keeper: C. Santana or Ethier

Postby Saosin » Tue Feb 22, 2011 6:46 pm

Hey all,

Just wondering everyone's opinion on my great keeper debate. Team/League information found below. We are allowed to keep 7 regulars, 1 rookie and 2 minors. Most of my keepers are set but I'm struggling to keep one of the following three guys:

1. C. Santana
2. A. Ethier
3. D. Jeter

I'm aware the SS is a thinner position, but I'm of the opinion that Jeter may finally start to fall off this year (or continue to fall off based on last year's 2H). I was originally sold on keeping Santana over Ethier, however, I just cannot put Ethier's monster first half numbers out of my head. He was, prior to injury, the best player in our league when he was red hot. Obviously the pinkie injury destroyed the rest of his season and I'm just really not sure what to expect going forward.

I love Santana, especially considering the scarcity at the C position, however, I'm just not sure that he deserves a keeper spot over Ethier at this point. Looking at ADP, Ethier is obviously the first to go off the board, but in a dynasty league like my own, I feel that Santana has far more value than Ethier at this stage in his career.


Any input would be appreciated

Thanks as always.

Don't over think it. Santana could put up Either like first half numbers all year from the C position.
