    • I'd do it. Especially in a Keeper league. Longoria plays 3B and elite 3Bs are hard to find

    • I like King Felix side better Felix is much better than Kennedy and Middlebrooks is 24 years old and plays in a great hitters ballpark. Can you answer my huge offer post. I really need help

    • I would rather have Longoria and Kennedy.

      In a H2H league...take the better bat over the better arm.

      In a H2H league a starting pitcher will only help you one day a week (unless it is a rare 2 start week that happens only about once every 2 months).

      On the other hand...any starting hitter will help you 6 or 7 days out of the week.

      Thus, a better bat has more value than the better arm in a H2H league.

      That...and starting pitching is a lot deeper than third base. Hell...Matt Harvey, Paul Maholm, Shelby Miller, Jose Fernandez and Tony Cingrani are a few names that could have comparable value to Felix Hernandez by the end of this season...and in a keeper league...four of those names are young power pitchers that you could get cheaply today that will pay more dividends than Hernandez over the next 5 seasons.
