    Need keeper input please!

    Trumbo's eligibility depend in what format you use. In Yahoo it is 5 games. I think I heard one format (ESPN maybe or CBS) is as much as 20 games???

    Trumbo played enough games to qualify at 3B last year on Yahoo so he should still be eligible there as well as OF. I don't know about 1B. As pointed out by someone else on another thread, Kendrys Morales backed up Albert at 1B last year for the Angels so don't know if Trumbo re-qualified even in the generous Yahoo's standard. But Morales is now with Seattle and Trumbo is more a DH who may well play 1B when Pujols has a day off or DH's himself. So Trumbo could end up with OF/3B/1B eligibility within a month in Yahoo maybe. Which makes him even more tempting to keep.

    I agree about Josh Rutledge except I don't think he is a sleeper any more. He is getting hyped a lot already. In fact if someone in your league has him already he may become one of their keepers. I have him in a 12 man keeper and a dynasty league and he is staying right where he is with me this season.

    • Thanks guys for all the comments, as far as Trumbo goes the whole thing comes down to whether or not he can play third base, basically he's no good to me in the of and I think I can still draft a 1b will similar production so he is no goo o me there either. I have toggled with the idea of dumping Phillips which may happen so that I can try to retain chapman or Bruce. Ill have to check out this josh Rutledge I've honestly never heard of him but will see what I can find.
