  1. Good heads up. I’m down Justin Upton and, now, Brett Gardner in my 12-team mixed 7×6 roto keeper league (5×5 categories, plus OBP, SLG, and HLD). 25-man roster, 3 DL slots, but we differentiate among LF/RF/CF, and have a generic OF and a UTIL slot.

    In that format – especially with an eye to OBP – would you add Gerardo Parra or one ore more of the following LF-eligible outfielders:

    Jose Tabata (terrible start, now getting benched? or is it just a rest?)
    Jon Jay (how badly did he bang his shoulder?)
    David Murphy
    Alex Presley
    Luke Scott
    Chone Figgins
    Seth Smith

    Thanks for any insight you have.

  2. That is a fascinating question. Definitely not Jay, who had his arm in a sling and is probably headed for the DL. I’ve never been a Tabata fan in fantasy, because his overall skill set doesn’t make up for his total lack of power.

    Of those you listed, Murphy, Parra, and Scott would be my top choices. I probably like Murphy best of them all, though if OBP was your top priority Parra is probably your man there, despite his somewhat slow start so far.

  3. Thanks for the advice. I added Parra, but might try to sneak Murphy on to my roster if possible. I’ve got an outside chance to finish in the crackers this year (going from #10 of 12 to as high as #3 of 12 would be a big win for me). I can’t afford a long DL stint from either Upton or Gardner if things are going to break my way.
