This one is tough. My head says drop Drabek as this is still his rookie season. My heart says drop Garcia as I think Drabek can have a very good rookie season. Either way though, both of these guys should have trade value (especially Drabek after his great debut). If you can trade 2 for 1, Maybe both these guys and then do the WW pick up? Unless you dont want to risk waiting for a trade to go through. I would drop Drabek though. Reasons being, he can still eventually hit the rookie wall, batters/teams might start to figure him out. Garcia is pretty established at this point so I don't think you will see any major adjustments to his season.

Look at it this way--

Your SP is very solid through and through, so this decision won't make a HUGE difference in the end. Drabek certainly has higher upside, so grabbing him could either put you over the top or give you good trade value. Garcia, on the other hand, is just another decent starter at the tail end of a very good staff (yours). Maybe work out a trade to upgrade elsewhere, but otherwise, go for it and take the risk at a potential front-liner!

Good luck ;-D

Agreed. This should not break you and Drabek has the upside.

Drop an overvalued J.Garcia for a future-star P - go with the talent :)
It would be nice to know what you did with our advice - so please write a short reply
