    Kemp vs Springer keeper ?

    In a 14 team H2H mixed league. Rebuilding with 7 keepers. first 6 are M. Carpenter, Segura, Braun, Trumbo, Buxton, Darvish. My question is do I keep Kemp or Springer? Health vs Youth?

    • I'd hate to see how bad the rest of your team was if you're THAT far into the rebuilding process that those are your best keeper options, even in a 14-team league. Quite frankly, I don't ever see Carpenter being a high-steal OR a high-HR guy. He's gonna give you a ton of runs and a good AVG/OBP, but they'll be relatively empty. Therefore, if you're THIS FAR into the rebuild that you're keeping Trumbo and Buxton and considering keeping Springer, I'd say drop Carpenter and keep both Kemp AND Springer.

      I understand how unpopular that opinion will likely be. But if you're keeping that group of players, you aren't going to be competitive in 2014, so why not plan to have the best team you can in the future?

    • It really isn't health vs youth, Springer is younger and probably healthier as well. but he has no MLB track record, and Kemp can be an MVP. Gotta go Kemp. I'd think about dropping Trumbo for Springer. If Springer is as good as they say, Trumbo and his Mark Reynolds/Ike Davis impression can take a hike

    • Might be able to draft Springer later... Keep Kemp...

    • Kemp. As good as I think Springer will be, I can't drop Kemp for him.
