Help with Keepers

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Help with Keepers

Postby pythons007 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:41 pm

Bumgarder or Darvish? I'm leaning toward Bum, but Darvish's strikeouts are so sexy, I can only keep one as they both fall in the same keeper slot.

You're keeping Bumgarner, and it's not even close.

Bumgarner has better averages (ERA, WHIP, SO/BB), more IP, and a higher WAR.

The only thing you get with Darvish are a few more K, and really, it's not that significant unless you're in roto (2 more K/9).

Something to look at, however, are the amount of HR Bumgarner gave up last year: 24 (career high). Lucky for owners, he doesn't allow many base runners, so the BIG homer wasn't an issue.

Bumgarner as well although I think Darvish will be closer than people think. First year in the league, means he should get better this year. Thing to watch is his walk rate, if that doesn't improve then he is what he is but I think he will get that under control and end up being a top 15 sp end of season.
