I'm in a redraft NL-only league. Players like Joe Blanton are on the waiver wire. With Kershaw, what's the value-over-Blanton now? Seems pretty low!
But has anyone actually inspected this guy, watched or analyzed his starts? Willing to take a stand on a prediction about him for his next few starts?
If Blanton is the best guy on ww, then definitely hold on to Kershaw.
While I didn't watch his last start, looking at the boxscore, looks like he had trouble locating (expected of a young pitcher). I would say expect kind of numbers he has right now. He'll walk a lot of guys, but will minimize the damage with his Ks. When the batters are chasing pitches, he'll do good, but when the batters are being patient, he'll have to throw too many pitches and won't be able to go deep into the game (this limits his chance of getting a W as well).
