Drop Hughes for Minor? WHIR

Postby RASportsnut » Sat Apr 09, 2011 9:55 am

Hughes is certainly rated higher, but I just don't feel confident starting him, and haven't very much in the 2 years I've owned him. Is Minor projected to be a top pitcher? Should I drop Hughes for Minor now, as I'm deep at pitching?

Tough call.
I would lean towards Minor probably a little. I like his upside.

I guess I would stick with Hughes unless he gets moved to the bullpen.

A note: this is a dynasty league, so I'm looking long term also.

I like minor's potential much more than that of hughes.
Also Hughes velocity issues are rather alarming, and he doesnt have high enough quality secondary pitches to get away with his current 89-90 mph fastball. In a dynasty league Minor is even more appealing.

If time trade Hughes to a believer.... Grab Minor.
