Drop Venters to add Drabek?

Postby schlagdawg » Sun Apr 03, 2011 4:26 pm

H2H points 10-team league
21-man roster
No limit on SP
15 games started limit

My roster:

Buster Posey
Gaby Sanchez
Dan Uggla
Casey McGehee
Hanley Ramirez
Josh Hamilton
Mike Stanton
Drew Stubbs
Justin Morneau
Kelly Johnson
Nick Swisher
Ian Stewart

Josh Johnson
Chris Carpenter
Jonathan Sanchez
Madison Bumgarner
Brett Anderson
Bronson Arroyo
Joakim Soria
JJ Putz
Johnny Venters


My thinking is that with Craig Kimbrel looking like the closer for Atl, even if Venters gets me a few points as a set-up guy, it would be better to have a starting pitcher in that roster spot instead. Plus, I would still have Soria and Putz. Drabek's monster start caught my eye, and he's available in FA. I don't know the best way to share the available FA pitchers in my league (I'm new here), but I'm willing to check any suggestions anyone has.

So my question is two-part: Should I drop Venters for a SP, and who should that SP be?

I'd add Drabek, but I'd much rather drop Arroyo.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

And that's because I never should have drafted Arroyo in the first place, right?

Yup, Drabek for Arroyo. I wouldn't drop Venters yet, as long as he could possibly in the mix to get a few saves.
