Keeper League: Who would you rather keep?

Postby SRQCub » Mon Jan 25, 2016 2:21 pm

16-team keeper league, allowed to keep up to 13 Major Leaguers. I have enough points to keep either combo of players. So, looking ahead at 2016, would you rather have:

Ben Zobrist and Johnny Cueto

or

Jose Altuve and James Shields

What say you?

Altuve and Shields and it's not very close. Shields is less of an injury risk and Altuve and Shields aren't changing teams. Who knows how good an aging Zobrist will be in Wrigley or how good Cueto will be in SF? Plus Cueto really sucked in KC.

How many positions does Zobrist qualify for in your league? I'd go Altuve and Shields, unless Zobrist qualifies for like 2B/SS/3B/OF. Then I'd at least consider Zobrist for roster flexibility.

Hindsight:

Altuve/Shields: 505 points.

Zobrist/Cueto: 619 points.

Who knew Shields would be so terrible?

Haha, right?

I know this thread is from January, but I had a good chuckle when I read the OP. I have both Altuve and Shields on my team, and at this point, we are talking about, like, the most severe contrast possible.

Errrr I recently dropped Shields, but still.
