I like Davis' power but Votto isn't that far behind plus he brings in a few more SB...thoughts in terms of keepers?
Thank you

Chris Davis might hit 35 home runs in 2009, but it's going to come at a batting average price. He has the Dunn gene and could strikeout 170 times next year.

For 2009, think:

Votto: 28/95/.290/10 steals
Davis: 32/100/.260

It's close and it matters a bit what you're putting around them, but empirically I want Votto.

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.

Really, Grey? .260? I think you'll get about the same value out of both. I think that a 26.0% K rate isn't that much different from Votto's 19.4%. Chris isn't the hacker that Dunn is, and has about the same line drive ratio that Votto has.

I think that you'll see about the same .290 out of both and as for 40 HR in Arlington for Davis, I believe.

I'll totally buy Grey a Pina Colada if I'm wrong.

Are you saying this after reading what Bill James says Davis will get in 09? Cause James has Davis as a near-MVP candidate from the numbers he projected for him. I don't think Davis has the plate discipline for .290. But let's not lose the fact that I do like Davis, just Votto a bit more.

Are you saying that it's okay to disagree with my homeboy Bill F. James?

For the record, I picked Votto in a 2007 keeper auction for $1 and still have him, so I'm keeping him over Davis who I have for $18. With all that extra cash, I'm gonna go buy me some snack foods.

I'd take Votto over Davis. However, I think they will both produce. Votto will produce better across the board. I got to see him play when he came through Chattanooga in the Reds farm system. He is the real deal. I see Votto producing .317/27/105 .

Votto all the way.
