Look at each pair of players and pick the one you’d rather own in 2014. Go quickly and try not to over think it.

Wil Myers or Carlos Beltran
Carlos Gonzalez or Prince Fielder
Jason Kipnis or Yasil Puig
Dominic Brown or Shane Victorino
Yu Darvish or Max Scherzer
Eric Hosmer or Anthony Rizzo
Matt Wieters or Joe Mauer
Chris Davis or Bryce Harper
Justin Verlander or Jose Fernandez
Giancarlo Stanton or Jay Bruce

Scoring:
Wil Myers +2 Carlos Beltran -2
Carlos Gonzalez +1 Prince Fielder -1
Jason Kipnis -2 Yasil Puig +2
Dominic Brown +2 Shane Victorino -2
Yu Darvish +1 Max Scherzer -1
Eric Hosmer -2 Anthony Rizzo +2
Matt Wieters +1 Joe Mauer -1
Chris Davis +1 Bryce Harper -1
Justin Verlander -2 Jose Fernandez +2
Giancarlo Stanton +1 Jay Bruce -1



If you scored positive: you’re an aggressive player looking for upside and prefer younger players. You tend to look for homers on offense and Ks in your pitchers and let everything else take care of itself. You’re a very hands on manager with a quick hook for non-performers. You don’t pay attention to positional scarcity.



If you scored negative: you put a premium on reliability. You prefer proven performance to upside potential. You You pay attention to all 10 categories, particularly the rates, and place a premium on balanced players. You exercise patience with your players. You do tend to factor in positional scarcity to your thinking.

The deeper psychological underpinnings of your answers

Answer key:

Wil Myers or Carlos Beltran
If you picked Beltran you are old, infirm, and likely to die soon

Carlos Gonzalez or Prince Fielder
If you picked Cargo you are in the medical profession and profit from injuries suffered by others. If you picked Prince Fielder, it’s because you’re fat.

Jason Kipnis or Yasil Puig
If you picked Puig, it’s because you like black guys

Dominic Brown or Shane Victorino
If you picked Dom it's because you like brown guys

Yu Darvish or Max Scherzer
If you had a hard time deciding this one, it’s because you’re a fascist

Eric Hosmer or Anthony Rizzo
If you picked Rizzo it’s because you live in New Jersey

Matt Wieters or Joe Mauer
If you answered this you spend too much time thinking about catchers

Chris Davis or Bryce Harper
If you picked Harper it’s because you’re a pedophile

Justin Verlander or Jose Fernandez
If you picked Verlander, you live in your parents house, play Xbox and pleasure yourself to thoughts of Kate Upton

Giancarlo Stanton or Jay Bruce
If you picked Jay Bruce, it’s because you’re left handed

I scored -1 by the way. Slightly conservative but pretty balanced.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

You're a +4. That's pretty much what I would expect from you. I'm surprised you went Scherzer over Darvish though. I would think you'd be all over those Darvish Ks and would expect win regression from Scherzer.
