Too early to tell.
This depends a lot more on if Story sticks in Col and at SS...and if Bradley stays in BOS.
As long as Bradley stays in BOS (and Betts is there too) then I say Bradley.
Story's value is ultimately tied to playing SS and hitting with some power in the most favorable hitting environment in MLB (think Troy Tulowitzki). Once the SS eligibility goes or the home hitting environment changes when so does his value...drastically.

You are correct!
Kinsler hit HR AND STEALS BASES.
The only reason to value Cano over Kinsler is if your league count SB.
- Dick Strong Dick Strong Jun 20, 2016 5:05 PM Flag
You are clueless.
The only way Cano and Kinsler would be similar is if your league does not count SB for some reason.

You need Maybin's SB. Maybin needs to be starting in your lineup every day he plays.
Turner is the perfect backup 1B/3B for most any team.
Santana will not help you in any area.

Keep your RP.
Stream SP only for favorable NL matchups.
Stream and Cubs, Nationals, Mets, or Cardinals pitcher available with a favorable matchup (those teams have either the lowest runs allowed, highest runs scored, or greatest run differential of any National League team).
Your ratio stats will continue to be fine if you have high K/9 RP with low ERAs and low WHIP. You can poach wins by being selective and remembering that wins are a team item, not a pitcher specific item.

Who are you fools that say a prediction of Betts having more WAR this season than both Trout and Harper is not bold?
What would you consider bold? Saying that Betts would have more WAR this season than both Trout and Harper...AND...would be Earl Strickland in a 9-ball pool match (race to 7)...AND beat Earl Anthony in at 3-game series of bowling?

They do give him credit when he takes the extra base and succeeds. However, there are a great deal of folks that are at 95%+ when taking an extra base and don't make dozens of outs on the basepaths.
Altuve is a poor base runner. Very poor.

Stolen bases is not taking an extra base. Clearly you did not read the article about Jose Altuve's poor base running and you do not understand the topic at hand (as usual).
You may continue to follow me around merely to comment on my commentary. You are truly a vapid individual.

76% success rate is okay for stealing bases...not taking an extra base. When taking an extra base you really should be 95%+.

Myers hits HR AND steals bases.
Posey is still a catcher and produces typical catcher stats. Catcher is the fantasy baseball wasteland.
Don't be fooled by names.
Own numbers (Myers), not names (Posey).
Alex Bregman or Trea Turner
Year ago there was debate between the value of Jason Kipnis and Brett Lawrie. I sided with Kipnis. Guess who has had more real life and fantasy baseball value?
Similarly, there was a recent debate between the value of Mookie Betts and Rusney Castillo. I sided with Betts. Guess who has had more real life and fantasy baseball value?
Who do you believe will have more fantasy value? Bregman or Turner?

The two are comparable.
Carpenter is very good at what he does. However, Nunez is the better fantasy baseball asset and bench bat.
One provided above average performance in 4 categories. The other provides above average fantasy performance in 5 categories.
