Drop which SP and why? WHIR

Postby FantasySportsMaven » Tue Aug 14, 2012 9:07 am

I need to drop one of these SPs in order to bring Pablo Sandoval off the DL.
I am in first place and have clinched a playoff spot, so if any of these pitchers are likely to be shut down at the end of the season, they are candidates to be dropped. Although wins are nice, high Ks with lots of IPs are next in importance.

Which one of these guys would you drop and why?
Ross Detweiler
Ben Sheets
Scott Diamond
Carlos Villanueva
Francisco Liriano
Jeff Karstens
Chris Tillman
Alex Cobb

Tillman.

To me, he's just in a lower tier of pitchers than the others that you listed.

Thanks for your help.

As for your list, they all feel pretty close to streaming pitchers. Basically, you should be able to find equivalent type players on the waiver wire day-to-day, so I don't feel like dropping any of them is that big of a deal unless you are in a really deep league (say 12-16 teams). If you have to choose, I probably would drop Liriano, Cobb, or Tillman. I like Detwieler, but he won't get you Ks, although he's probably the best pitcher listed there. Karstens is not flashy, but is solid. Also will not get you K's though. And Scott Diamond is good with spot starts (as are most of these guys). I would advise dropping Tillman though.

I agree completely with Tillman. He is a lot lower tier than the others on your team
