Hola, Grey and company!
I've been debating this question since the end of the season last year and I'm still stuck without an answer with ten days left before the keeper deadline.
I know you've got Hanley ranked just ahead of Castro in SS rankings and in the overall rankings but they're right next to each other either way. Hanley's a solid bet for a little bit more power than Castro along with more runs/RBI but Castro is probably going to have better speed and BA. Hanley's got the flexibility of playing 3B and SS in Yahoo! leagues but Castro is younger and hasn't been in the middle of a two year slump...
I'm currently keeping Ryan Braun, Mike Trout, and Clayton Kershaw for sure. I'm 100% confident on the three of them.
I need to choose one more keeper... Do I choose the former MVP caliber Hanley, the rising star(lin) Castro, or should I eschew all positional considerations and keep Jay Bruce, going into the draft with three OF already?
