Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Who should I keep? Ubaldo Jimenez, or Carlos Lee?
My keepers: Wieters, Pedroia, Mark Reynolds, Holliday. Halladay, Cliff Lee, and....?
Wieters is locked in because we have a bonus keeper spot exclusively for players in their 1st/2nd season in the majors(franchise player). Once theyre named as a franchise player they can retain that status on our rosters forever.
It depends on your league settings, but I think that keeping another SP now, after you have Halladay AND Lee seems a little redundant. I'd hang on to Lee for this year.
Jimenez is very good and getting better, but pitching is notoriously unreliable: see Nathan, Joe.
Good pitching -- even some great pitching -- comes into the league most years; Lee is a pretty reliable power bat who gives you good BA/OBP and the occasional SB is valuable. He's on the decline, but it isn't going to be immediate.
Either choice is good, but I prefer the bat over the arm in this case.
