Dear RotoRob: Do the Drew?

In a Roto keeper league that uses OBP instead of BA, who would you rather have – Jhonny Peralta or Stephen Drew?



Drew projects out at around .260/.332/.418, whereas Peralta should be close to .275/.350/.445. So, based on that and taking into account everything else, I take Peralta over Drew next season. Beyond 2008, however, I would likely lean towards Drew, poised for a serious breakout very soon.

    Talk about a crap shoot. Since it’s a keeper league, I’d take Drew because of his upside. Peralta’s crummy 2006 is still fresh in my mind (yes I did own him that year – no I don’t any more).

  2. RotoRob says:

    There’s no doubt that Drew has way more potential upside, agreed. As for Peralta, he’s a tough nut to crack, but it is likely that he’ll be more valuable than Drew for at least one more season.
