Should I drop one of the SP and pick up Bedard? WHIR!!

Postby mayfijr » Tue Mar 29, 2011 1:01 pm

The bottom end of my starting rotation is:
Jorge De La Rosa
Scott Baker
Brian Matusz

Is it worth taking a chance that Bedard is healthy and picking him up in place of any of these guys? Leave a link and I'll try to help in return. Thanks in advance!!

Probably Baker if you think he can stay healthy.

I'd drop Baker for him. I doubt Baker will be a hot commodity on the wire if Bedard gets injured or is ineffective, so you could probably get him back easily enough.

I like Matusz a lot. As the season rolled on last year he got stronger. He may miss the first start of the season and he he's pitching in the AL East, but he has the highest upside of the bunch and can be a number 1 starter by the start of next season.

I drop definitely drop either Matusz or Baker for Bedard. Bedard has ace potential with the biggest risk in the world, but it's not that big if you picking him up from FA. I would drop Baker as I think Matusz has higher upside although I don't really like either SP. De La Rosa has stud potential because of his K ability.

help me?

Another vote for Baker.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.
