Kipnis or Reddick? WHIR

Postby Dagonus » Sat Jul 14, 2012 5:31 pm

10 Team.
Keeper (+5 over draft price or $10 if wire pick up, up to 3 kept)

My team:
C: Wieters
1B: Konerko
2B: Kinsler
3B: Encarnacion
SS: Hardy
IF: Zimmerman
OF: Granderson
OF: Heyward
OF: Cuddyer
OF: Beltran
OF: Duda
Util: Kipnis
BE: Montero, J
BE: Pagan
BE: Middlebrooks

SP: Greinke
SP: Dempster
SP: Kuroda
SP: MIlone
SP: Moore
RP: Robertson
RP: Soriano
RP: Putz
BE: Shields
BE: Hellickson
DL: Marcum

DL: Empty
DL: Empty

I was offered Reddick for Kipnis. My instinct is to say no. Given the keep costs, I'd get to keep either for $10 next year if I wanted to. On the surface, Reddick might give me a bit more and help me make a push this season (I'm second in my division and so would make the playoffs this year if the season ended today, but would be the bottom seeded playoff team. Playoffs begin in August for us). However, I'm thinking that keeping Kipnis is smarter than keeping Reddick just simply based on positional availability next year (There's a lot more good outfielders than 2Bs out there). Of course, I could always keep neither in favor of some bigger names but the cost of keeping someone like Granderson is prohibitive ($33 keep)

Anyone have a different idea?

I agree with your thinking. Kipnis is the guy to keep. He is a better player overall and I can't help but still feel that Reddick is playing over his head still and Kipnis is the real deal. Keep Kipnis.
