Keep Danks vs. Cahill?

Postby Commish23 » Sat Feb 12, 2011 2:08 pm

I can't decide if I should keep Danks or Cahill. This is a league where I can keep 5 guys, and regardless of who I keep it doesn't affect my draft picks. I have 4 keepers set, and I'm trying to decide b/t these 2 pitchers as the 5th keeper. Any advice? Everywhere I look it says Cahill won't reproduce his 2010 #'s, which is probably true, but pitching in the weak AL west is a bonus I think. Who would you keep, Danks or Cahill. I appreciate the advice

I gotta go with Danks here because you know what you're getting and the floor isn't as bad. As you mentioned Cahill won't match last year's era/whip with out a big k/bb ratio improvement.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

Cahill's BABIP was .237, the best in the AL. That will catch up with him this year and you can expect a return to an ERA over 3.75 and likely 4.00+ He's a .500 pitcher at best. Danks ERA tend to stay under 3.80 year to year and has more value for you.
