I'd keep Harper and Stanton, Kemp get's injured fairly often.

-I assume this is a draft league and not a rotisserie/auction league?

How long are you allowed keepers? Can you give up draft picks to extend contract time, or do you keep them indefinitely?

If this is a long term league, i keep Stanton and Harper. Kemp has a floating batting eye from year to year, is older, and won't get you the same return on a trade that Stanton or Harper would if you need to firesale/reload for competition next year.

Stanton is trending up, though he reallllllly needs to be on a different team, and Bert Herper is everyone's favorite 'phenom'.

Can you trade one or two for a Ryan Braun/Votto/Cabrera-type player? Might be worth considering.

Good luck.

I'd say Kemp and Giancarlo. I'm not sure why people are saying Kemp always gets hurt. He missed 11 games in 4 years prior to last year. I don't know what it is but I just don't see Harper as a top tier guy.

Ive decided im going with Kemp and Stanton.
To be honest it was really between Harper and Kemp and they put up very similar numbers last year but Harper needed 133 more AB's to get them.

Thanks for the help.

depends heavily on what lobo brought up, and kemp has typically not been an often injured player. I personally would go with kemp and harper unless its a forever keeper then go with stanton and harper

No doubt stanton, then i'd go bryce if it were my team, although I feel Kemp may have more trade value depending on league settings and try to flip him.
