    Tough season. Please rank these AL guys for keeper value.

    Tough season in our AL 5x5. Looking ahead to 2021. Please rank these potential keepers (we keep 7). Also, would any two of them be a reasonable offer for $8 Luis Robert (year one)? Maybe Springer plus ___? Merrifield plus ___?

    Lance Lynn 5 option year
    Whit Merrifield 18 contract (2021 final year)
    Kyle Lewis 10
    Yuli Gurriel 22 option year
    Jorge Soler 17 option year
    Randy Arozarena 3
    Justin Dunn 4
    George Springer 32 option year
    Gregory Soto 10
    Chad Green 1
    Emanuel Clase 3

    I'm in an AL only but Green and Soto are the only guys I'm familiar with so the second group are not ranked.

    If I owned Robert there is enough profit in Merrifield+Lynn to get me thinking but it's tough to move a young, cheap stud.

    If you like Robert more than Lewis I can see that getting done.

    Thanks! Straight up (Lewis for Robert) or Lewis plus something for Robert?

    Straight up. I'm not even sure who has the higher ceiling.

    Lewis is a great story, and looks like a legit break out player. But Robert is clearly ahead of him to me. If I have to give something else, like a close to at cost Springer, with Lewis to get Robert, especially since you keep only 7 and if you give your 7th or 8th best guy with Lewis, it doesn't really hurt you, I'd be happy to do that.

    Wait, what? Robert has the higher fantasy ceiling by a mile. Not particularly close as far as upside honestly.

    Yep, I had this team I would offer the Robert owner any two off my roster plus throw in another player.

    Interesting. Well, he balked at dealing Robert so it was dead on arrival. May revisit in the off-season.

    Would love to have others besides virgonomic weigh in by ranking the potential keepers! Thanks.
