Should I dump Gallardo?

Postby Brizee8 » Wed May 08, 2013 5:15 pm

In my roto league, there's a 200 start limit. Yovani Gallardo doesn't seem to be the same pitcher this year, and I'm reading speculation that his velocity is down and he may not recover this season.

My current starters are:

Cole Hamels
Yu Darvish
Max Scherzer
Yovani Gallardo
Hyun-Jin Ryu

Is Gallardo worth keeping on the roster? Or should I look to replace him? WIth a limit on starts, it's important to make sure as many of my starts are good as possible.

Available starters are:
Tim Hudson
Jaime Garcia
Ervin Santana
Patrick Corbin
Alexi Ogando
Kyle Kendrick
Justin Masterson
Jeremy Guthrie
Barry Zito

I'm also considering streaming pitchers based on matchups. I'm currently doing well in every pitching category with the exception of ERA.

What do you think?

Thanks!

Keep him unless you really need the spot. Also,grab Garcia if you have a hitter to drop

I agree with the other guys in that if you have a hitter to drop snag jaime, but if you don't i like him over gallardo as well so i'd dump gallardo for him if need be

I agree with the others. If you don't have the spare spot and really want to make a move I wouldn't have too much of a problem dropping him for Tim Hudson or Jaime Garcia.

I wouldn't have an issue with dropping him for Hudson or Garcia. I personally like Hudson slightly better.

Stream. In my league, I've been successful over the last few days grabbing whoever is pitching against the Marlins.
