Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
10 player keeper league. Standard Roto scoring plus OBP and QS. Can keep any 5 players.
I am definitely keeping Carlos Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez, Jason Kipnis, and Clayton Kershaw.
Should my final keeper be Wainwright, Pujols, Rios, or Craig?
Thanks for the help!
Yeah I am definitely leaning towards Wainwright, but I am having a hard time passing up on Pujols. People seem to be so low on him this year. I understand the reasoning, but his upside is a top 5 player.

Wrong. Pujols will NEVER be a top 5 player again. Look at the kind of lines that hitters in the top 5 had last year:
Trout (27 HRs, 33 SB, 97 RBI, 109 runs, .323 AVG)
Miggy (44 HRs, 137 RBI, 103 runs, .348 AVG)
Goldschmidt (36 HRs, 15 SB, 125 RBI)
Davis (53 HRs, 138 RBI)
Pujols may not be as bad as he was in 2013, but you can take it to the bank that Pujols WILL NOT put up the kind of stat line necessary to land in the top 5. He has been trending downward consistently for too many years in too many stats/peripherals to believe that the MVP-caliber Pujols still exists.
Frankly, I think Pujols is the WORST of your remaining options. I would go with Wainwright.
