    Freddie Freeman or Jose Bautista? Keeper Question

    Hi everyone.

    I'm currently in a keeper league and have the third pick this upcoming season. I have assurances of who the top 2 picks are, leaving Freddie Freeman and Jose Bautista as the 2 clear cut best hitters available come my pick. It's a 10 team H2H league and my keepers are:

    SP: Stephen Strasburg
    SP: Jose Fernandez
    SP: Clayton Kershaw
    RP: Craig Kimbrel

    2B: Jason Kipnis
    3B: Manny Machado
    LF: Ryan Braun

    Keeper rules are 7 total players, must keep 2 SP, 1 RP, 3 hitters, and 1 flex (SP, RP, or hitter) so it is unlikely either player will crack my keeper rotation. Stat categories for offense are:

    Home Runs

    So who would you guys take with my pick between Freeman and Bautista?

    Other hitters also available are:
    Alex Rios
    Jose Reyes
    Starling Marte
    Hunter Pence
    David Ortiz
    Yoenis Cespedes
    Joe Mauer
    Ryan Zimmerman
    Eric Hosmer

    Thanks everyone!

    • 1) In a 10 team league there are better players available in the 71st spot than Freeman or Bautista.
      2) Not only are neither one of those the top pick in a 5x5 league...with your extended categories neither of these guys is a top 150 player.
      3) If Rios, Reyes, and Pence are available and you are considering Freeman and Bautista then clearly you are an idiot that is beyond help. Further, if your league mates were too stupid to keep Rios, Reyes, or Pence then you are probably in good company...idiot.

    • Freeman easy and Id keep him over machado easy.
