Team & league in signature. We keep 1 bat and 1 SP per year.
I plan to keep Darvish as my arm.

But...With the unique league settings in mind, who would you vote for as my keeper bat?
To me, it's between Freeman (1b) and Craig (1b/OF) for just 2014.

What do you think? Who?...and why? (FYI: Cabrera is not a keeper option...all other bats are.)

Please remember to consider the league settings...although these 2 are very comparable players
with similar skill/stat sets.

Thanks in advance!

I think you go Freeman. Agree they have similar skill sets and although age doesn't play as much because it's just for next year, Freeman is on a trajectory up.
Also I'd consider that Craig has often been banged up.
Freeman for me.

Craig will be just fine next year and put up great numbers.
Freeman is looking like he could be a monster next year.
I'd roll with Freeman.

Help here?

"...and woe betide fateful curiosity should it ever succeed in peering through a crack in the chamber of consciousness, out and down into the depths, and thus gain an intimation of the fact that humanity, in the indifference of its ignorance, rests on the pitiless, the greedy, the insatiable, the murderous."

Freeman, had to double check some of the numbers based on your league settings, but Freeman is superior in those as well, this year he is outproducing Craig in OBP, TB and Runs. Neither of them steal bases.

Plus I think Freeman is younger and has the higher ceiling, I realize their numbers might be "close" but I dont think this is an overly tough decision.

I thought about this one too, I drafted him in our mock 1 last January and I really liked the pick I said at the time he would be 20-20 and lead the NL in runs scored in that line up, which he almost did (looks like will finish 2nd or 3rd). But Cincy is a great spot, I dont see him resigning there, he is probably bound to have a drop off...but if he is back there or goes to a similar situation, I could see him being the one hitter as well.

Freeman over Craig with no doubts. Bogaerts would be a tough one for me to cut but I gotta go with Freeman.

I do like, Choo...not sure I could keep him over Freeman or Craig, though...the steals aren't a big deal...since it's just 18-20...and in head to head, I don't focus on them as much as in roto. He scores more runs than either of my 1b options, but the RBI/power production isn't close...and Freeman is moving up and only getting better. I do love Xander, but I don't know if the timing is right to keep him over these proven guys...I will definitely be targeting him and Choo in the draft, though!

From the initial question I would go with Freeman no doubt. But if you throw Choo in there, then that is another question and it is much closer of decision. I think it really depends on where Choo signs as well. I really don't like him as much in a Mets lineup as I would in the Reds. That's just me. I would still roll with Freeman though because OF are easier to come by.
