Keep Verlander or Hader? WHIR

Recommended Posts

Auction Draft: K/QS/W/L/SV/ERA/WHIP

Hader: $4

Verlander: $35

I could see Hader possibly getting that closer role during the year and those ratios are nice.  Verlander is obviously a top 5-10 pitcher and could probably help me in more cats.  I'm leaning Verlander but that keeper tag is pretty high.  I could always try to get the one I don't keep back in the draft.

The three-headed monster that is the Brewers bullpen will provide excellent value throughout the season, though I'd say Hader is least likely to assume the closer role because he can provide multi-inning outings more readily than Knebel or Jeffress. Verlander on the other hand, is 37 years old and has a lot of mileage on that arm. Personally I think when pitcher's reach a certain age they are a ticking time bomb (not like they aren't to begin with anyway), so do you want to risk this being the year Verlander explodes? Or do you want a dominant multi-inning specialist? I don't do auction drafts, but consider what value they provided last year and what they're going for this year and see which is the better value. Also, is this a points league, roto, categories? That will help determine that as well. Personally I think you can get Verlander for two or three dollars less than $35 at the auction, Hader will certainly go for more than $4. Lots to consider here, but mainly take away that Hader is least likely to close out of three because of his multi-inning capability.

Thanks Showdown.  It is a weekly head to head category league.  13 categories, if you have a better ERA, for example, you win that category.  A lot of weeks you'll see a 7-6 or 8-5 final score which is one "win" for the year long league.
