I drafted Harang pretty high-up in my draft, looking for pitchers with plenty of Ks and possibilities of CG and CGSO (extra categories in my league). Penny sort of fell into my lap later in the draft as I was filling out my roster.
Unfortunately, or fortunately, it appears that I've got a little too much invested into my Starting Pitching now, as I have 7 very attractive pitchers in my rotation:
- O. Perez
Obviously I need to capatalize on whatever I can in order to improve the rest of my team. I definitely would like to trade one of them in order to improve my bullpen (currently K-Rod/Hoffman/Torres).
Now, O. Perez or Escobar would be perfect candidates for trading, as their stock is pretty high right now and both have sketchy histories (breakdowns for Perez and injuries for Escobar). But, I don't think I'm going to be able to package either with Torres to get a much better closer. I may be forced to trade away Penny or Harang in order to make that big upgrade (currently looking at getting Papelbon from a guy who's about ready to start punting saves).
What are your guys' thoughts on Harang? Penny? Both are having a pretty decent season... is either likely to go up or down drastically?
