I'm in an NL only Keeper League (I can keep 5)

This is the team from last year..

Jason Bay,
Jay Bruce,
Corey Hart,
Adam Laroche,
Brandon Phillips,
Buster Posey,
Martin Prado,
Aramis Ramirez,
Hanley Ramirez,
Andres Torres,
Chris Young (of Arizona),
Jonathon Broxton,
Madison Bumgarner,
Jhoulys Chacin,
Jaime Garcia,
Joel Hanrahan,
Trevor Hoffman,
Jair Jurrjens,
Tim Lincecum,
Brandon Lyon,
Drew Storen,
Adam Wainwright,
Travis Wood


Who would you keep?

I'm leaning towards

Lincecum
Posey
Hanley Ramirez
Brandon Phillips
Not sure for the last spot.. Bumgarner, Bay..
Jay Bruce would be the last guy I would keep.

theres no money values? if not, id keep Posey, Hanley, Phillips, Lincecum, and Chris Young. unless its an ace, dont keep SP, since they only contribute to the team once or 2 twice a week.

There's no money values. It's just for fun, the typical Yahoo! league but with NL only players. You keep 5 from last year and the rest go into the draft for this year.
So yeah, it's coming down to Jay Bruce, Chris Young or Jason Bay I think.

Young gets the SB's but his Avg stinks. Bruce is pretty solid but doesn't get any steals. And Jason Bay is a crapshoot right now.

dont bank anything on Jason Bay. hes one of the last guys on your list id want. stay away.

Chris Young is a legit talent with power and speed. id hang onto him over Bruce for sure.
Id take jay bruce over chris young everytime. Bruce should be your 5th keeper

lol what?? how so? For fantasy Young is much more valuable. Last year he proved that. 90+ rbis, 90+ Runs, 30 hr, 30 sb. His avg isn't that great, but a 4 cat guy is big. Bruce doesn't do anything incredibly well. .280 avg, 25 hr, 70 RBI, 80 r, under 5 SB. Fantasy wise he's not that valuable. He's got power potential, but youngs a 30/30 threat.

Lets see. ESPN, RotoWire, MLB all have Bruce ranked ahead of Young. Bruce has a better lifetime BA, OPS, OBA, and a better lineup and park to hit in. I like his upside more and I guess most people who do this for a living agree.

theyre both ranked around the same area. OPS and OBA arent fantasy stats unless youre in a saber league. the cats that matter are R, RBI, HR, AVG, and SB. Young is better than Bruce in this format, and its pretty clear.

Acutally... those sites rank the players on a 5x5 format and all have Bruce ranked higher. I'm guessing its because they all feel, like I do, that Jay Bruce has the bigger upside.

when you have a guy whos proven he can score 90+, drive in 90+, hit 25-30 jacks, steals 25-30 bases, and hit for an avg thats tolerable as long as hes got power/speed production, hes going to be more valuable than a guy whos proven nothing more than being able to hit for some power and bring his avg up to .280. and both play in hitters parks.

btw the "people who do this for a living" are just guessing the same as everyone else is. unless they have the ability to predict the future, theyre just taking educated stabs in the dark. if you asked any of them "could you see Chris Young being a more valuable fantasy players than Jay Bruce?" every single one would say "of course i could see that."

i personally think Chris Youngs 30 hr/30 sb potential puts him in a class above Bruce. i need to see Bruce put together a great fantasy season before he moves up.

You would be wrong but you should be used to that by now. By the way, I think Young is a solid fantasy player. Just playing with you. I like Bruce more but I can see your point if you want a guy with power AND speed.
