I need to pick up another pitcher, but my problem is not knowing who to drop. My league only carries 3 bench spots and 1 DL. I have 2 guys on DL. I am thinking it's time to drop Reimold. Take a look at my team and tell me if you think I'd regret it in the long run. I'd rather hold onto Chapman right now I think. ********The available pitchers are listed 2 posts down.***************
12 team H2H keeper league.
My team: C: Olivo (Montero on DL) 1B: Miguel Cabrera 2B: Zobrist SS: Y. Escobar (could end up on DL, and i have no back up SS) 3B: Prado 1B/3B: Morneau 2B/SS: Callaspo 4 OF: Ethier, Rivera, Pence, Austin Jackson (just picked him up last night) UTIL: Wigginton Bench/DL: Nelson Cruz, Montero, Reimold 9 Pitchers: Verlander, Billingsley, Jurrjens, Romero, Wade Davis, Feldman, Heath Bell, Feliz, Chris Perez Bench: Aroldis Chapman

If it is between Chapman and Reimold, I agree...Reimold is struggling right now and it sounds like he will be losing some playing time. Once Cruz returns I think the decision will be made a lot easier. What pitchers were you looking at to pick up?
Correia Morrow Marcum Randy Wells Brett Cecil Zambrano E. Santana Porcello Harden (if he turns things around) Arthur Rhodes (for holds and K/BB) *Many teams in my league don't have holds guys, so one guy can win the category for me.
Who would you pick up?

Wells has been pitching well with a solid K/BB rate, same with Marcum - Marcum doesn't have the wins, but the Jays have to start scoring runs for him sometime, right? I have Marcum on my team and I like him, solid starts around 7 innings. I dont think you could go wrong with either of them especially with favorable matchups next week (Blue Jays have Cle. and Chi. and the Cubs have Pit and Cin.)
Drop Reimond if you haven't done so, hold on to Chapman for now, even though I doubt you may have to drop Chapman at some point later. I would pick up Randy Wells over Rich Harden. Wells is doing ok, and his k/9 is significantly better than last year. Most importantly, Wells can consistently go out there and not blow it up. Now Wells is the most consistent SP for Cubs (maybe after Ted Lily). Harden's 1.9 whip is IMO, much more worrisome than his 4.5 ERA. With that type of control, it's only a matter of time for Harden to blow it up really bad.
