Pick up Lowe and drop????

Postby Joe LaCock » Thu Sep 08, 2005 7:47 am

So I have been caught in Ks and I need the stat. I also am in a dogfight for era and and whip so I can't ignore those categories either.

Lowe has had 3 very good starts. Harden is hurt and who know what he is going to do when he comes back. Beckett and Burnett have been poor in their last 2/3 starts. Is it stupid to even think about making one of these moves? Thanks for any advice. Joe

I wouldn't drop Harden, Beckett or Burnett for him.
Any other options?

LOL- Yeah my other options are Clemens, Smoltz, Pedro, Lowery, Lieber (who I just picked up). Lieber pitches before Lowe so I will make a quick swap if Lieber gets torched but he has been very well his last few starts. Thanks for the input. Joe

If Lieber gets torched? Heh. I like Lowe over Lieber, and he'll probably pick up a few more K's to boot. Lowry is also expendable, IMO.

Lieber is the only one I would drop for Lowe.

I'd sit tight but if you want to make a move I'd drop Lieber for Lowe.
