Drop Ohka, Ainsworth, or Foppert?

Postby kcs261 » Sun May 04, 2003 10:12 pm

Between these three, who would you drop first? I'm leaning towards Ohka (because he has the smallest upside). But I was curious if people had other thoughts? In what order, would you rank these guys? I'm not particularly high on any one of them at the moment.

I had all three. Foppert went first, then Ainsworth...for Myers and Meche. Ohka is gonna get one more start for me to evaluate...

I'd dump all three. Unless you are in an NL-only league, those are substandard starters to even be using unless you only spot start them based on favourable matchups. Filling those roster spots with relievers who won't hurt your ERA or WHIP is probably a better idea.

It's a messed up league I play in. It's a customized h-to-h POINTS league like the old Sandbox system (For pitchers: 1 pt out, 1 pt K, 10 pts W/S, -1 H/BB, -1 R, -5 BS/L, etc. etc.). We can start 6 SPs each game (Mon-Thur & Fri-Sun), 6 RPs, or any combination thereof. So these guys are nothing but spot starters who I use with favorable matchups. At the top of my lineup (in a 10-team league), I have Pedro, Moose, Vazquez, Brown, Peavy, Lohse, Radke, Ramon Ortiz, and Orlando Hernandez (when he gets back). But Foppert, Ainsworth, and Ohka are currently my bottom feeders. I'm not crazy about any of them. But with starting 6 SPs every series (because I missed out on the good closers & would rather spot start SPs, than try and predict when a below average closer will get a save opp), I do have to start these guys on occasion. But one of them has to go. I'm leaning towards Ohka right now. I don't like what I'm seeing from Foppert and Ainsworth. But there's so much potential with those two, which doesn't exist with Ohka, I don't think. Disagreement?
