Should I pick up Francis or Britton?

Postby whoson1st0 » Sat Apr 02, 2011 8:56 am

12 team mixed 5x5

I am thinking about picking up Jeff Francis or Zach Britton. These guys will def get picked up in my league sooner rather than later, based on Francis' good game and Britton getting called up. However I'm not sure they are worth dropping what I have. I had an eye on both at my draft.

The SP on my bench now are Travis Wood, Niese, and Edwin Jackson.
My RP are Frank Francisco and Kuo (but my active RP are Krod and Putz so I need depth).

Any point in picking up Francis or Britton at this point?

Wood, Francis, Britton, Jackson and Niese are all iffy guys in a 12-teamer. I like Britton a lot but as with any rookie pitcher in the AL East you have to temper expectations. I think this is one of those times where you have to see who gets hot. Each pitcher definitely has some intriguing upside. I wouldn't make a move immediately unless you're convinced both will get grabbed. If you have to drop someone I'd make it Niese, but it's close.
