Fantasy Baseball Keeper Blalock or Soriano?

Which one for a keeper. Both positions are tough

I'd get rid of Crawford. He's really only super valuable in one category (SB) and marginally valuable in two others (AVG & R).

I'm against having OFs that only get you 10 HR and 60 RBI in a season for the sake of steals. Sacrificing too many categories to dominate one.

Agreed. Get rid of Crawford. He's a monster w/ SBs, but that's about it. I'd keep Blalock and Soriano, if possible. If you had to choose one, I'd say Soriano simply because he's one of, if not the best 2B in the league. Blalock is great, but there are alot of other players at that position that can equal his stats.

well it's only because i have blalock, but someone offered soriano for blalock, derek lee, and some pitchers, none of whom i would keep other than blalock. so should i do the trade. i'm not gonna win this year, and i could either start off with hudson, tejada, crawford, and soriano or blalock.

You keep Soriano between those two. Third base is a lot deeper than second. I think second base dropped to the weakest position this year behind catcher if it wasn't already.

I'd keep Soriano. Blalock is in a major slump right now.

If you're not going to win this year, YES MAKE THAT TRADE.

Soriano is one of the best FBB players out there. Blalock, while excellent, is not.

Soriano. Second base is very weak. Plus, with Tejada you will be 2/3rds of the way to a great mid-infielder (provided you play with a 2nd/Short slot as well).

I have a similar debate with my keepers. I have Mulder, K-Rod, Jeter, Victor Martinez, and Hafner. Plus Beltran if he comes back to the AL. Of course since I needed steals and already had enough keepers I traded Baldelli last week for Alex Sanchez who promptly went on the DL (I knew it was a possibility but Baldelli was bothering me)

Everyone's right - 2B is a hard position to fill. I'd keep Hank, because I think he'll be one of the premeire hitters of the decade by the time it's done.

Im assuming that was a typo?
