drop maholom.. He is on pace to win 10 games and 115k, and a era in the 4's. He is not really going to win games. Porcello doesnt strike out much either but probably will win more games, But his era should inflate and probably will hit a rough patch in the second half, when the league figures him out as the same happened volquez, cueto, etc last year. Bottom line, its a wash. I probably would drop maholom for the upside but i can also justify dropping meche.
I picked up Porcello a couple weeks ago and he's really helped me out. I would drop Maholm for him, personally.
And while I understand the people who advise against dropping Meche, it wouldn't bother me too much to part with him. Yes, he's a solid vet, etc., but I just don't think he's right. His back was giving him trouble and I wonder if it isn't still bothering him. I recently dropped him but I have several pretty good SP options and so do you.
