Need to drop a starter, can't decide who.

Postby Baseballer02 » Wed Mar 24, 2004 10:22 am

Somehow after waiver pickups and trades I ended up with 7 SP on one of my teams without realizing it. This will eat up my innings way to quickly so I need to drop 1 or 2 starters. Here's my pitching staff

Sp-Mark Mulder
Sp-Roy Oswalt
Rp-Francisco Cordero
Rp-Eddie Guardado
P-Arthur Rhodes
P-Danny Graves
P-Dontrelle Willis
Bench-Brandon Webb
Bench-Jose Contreras
Bench-Jerome Williams
Bench-Mark Redman

It's a toss-up for me between Contreras, Williams, and Redman on who to drop, or should I keep all 7 and use 1 or 2 just for spot starts? I feel I need the four closers because there's 2 or 3 other teams that are very strong in that position also. Any advice appreciated.

drop Redman, or maybe see who you can get in a trade for one of your pitchers, you have a good staff, 5 very solid guys

Very nice rotation. Redman is probably the weakest, Contreras did very well in his starts last year, with K's, and Williams will have a good year. I would try and trade Redman first. Maybe you could do a package? What else do you need?

I really don't need anything, in my opinion. My hitting lineup looks like

C-Craig Wilson
1b-Richie Sexson
2b-Alfonso Soriano
3b-Morgan Ensberg
Ss-Edgar Renteria
Of-Vernon Wells
Of-Shawn Green
Of-Juan Gonzalez
Util-Alex Sanchez
Bench-Paul Konerko

Maybe try and package Wilson and Williams or Redman for an elite catcher, Wilson may only get 400 ab's this year.

Just offered somebody Wilson and Redman for Posada. He's got a crappy pitching staff so here's hoping he'll accept.

Also, if the trade is accepted and goes through should I pick up Trot Nixon with my empty spot? He's only out until May so I could stash him on the DL until then.

any of the 3 mentioned pitchers wont be missed from your team, let alone all 3. trade them away for offensive improvements.

I would say Redman...Contreras's upside is just HUGE, and although Redman could have a decent year, his ceiling just isn't that high.

Nice staff btw
