Keep or Kut – Pete (@PeteBBaseball) and Chad (@chadyoung) pick two hitters and one pitcher each that, for whatever reason, they just cannot quit. They also break down a particular keeper situation that is probably similar to what many fantasy players probably find themselves in regarding a particular infielder on the Royals.

10:30 – Pete cannot quit the red-hot Nick Senzel but his rationale fails to convince Chad to buy in.
20:18 – No surprises here: Chad cannot quit Trent Grisham. Pete is not enthralled with his last 162 GP.
30:34 – Jesse Winker is a buy-low target for both Pete and Chad. As a matter of fact, the window may have closed already!
39:52 – Chad goes back and forth on J.D. Davis, who sports some pretty impressive underlying numbers when making contact.
49:38 – Pete is enjoying what he’s got from Corey Kluber so far this year, despite the lack of strikeouts.
59:24 – Carlos Carrasco is easy to root for, and someone Chad has no interest in quitting on.
1:08:40 – What to do with an expensive-to-keep Bobby Witt Jr.? A lot to be decided by the second half of the season, but Pete and Chad discuss it here and now.
