Tristan H. Cockcroft: (11:00 AM ET ) Good morning everyone! Let's get right to those fantasy baseball questions of yours... Al (Riverside, CA): Who would you keep between Verlander and Bonderman in a 5x5 keeper league with no limit as to how long you could hold onto players? My other 4 keepers are Pujols, Wright, Hafner, and Ichiro. Thanks. Tristan H. Cockcroft: (11:02 AM ET ) I think Justin Verlander's going to be the better pitcher for the course of his career, so if it's an unlimited keeper league, that's something to keep in mind. But I'm picking Jeremy Bonderman to be the better fantasy option for 2007, and he's not much less in the long haul. Really, with your roster, I'd worry about 2007 first and foremost, especially since pitching is so unpredictable from year to year. I know you give up possibly a perennial Cy Young man, but Bonderman could still become that. I'd keep him.
