Is Beckett worth the number 3 waiver priority?

Postby Dubjay » Sat Apr 09, 2011 7:18 pm

12 team H2H 5X5 keeper league. We keep 10
I know that he could be great if he could get back to his pre 2010 form. But thats a big if right now. I dont want to waste the priority as this is a pretty good group of managers
My starters look like this
LINCECUM
HAMELS
B.ANDERSON
LILLY
CHACIN
ZIMMERMAN
SHIELDS
ROMERO
MATUSZ(DL)
Any help greatly appreciated ;-D

Unless you have a positonal player to drop, I see no upside from your pitchers. I feel he will do better than he is, but I'd be looking drop someone of differnt calibre.


I'm ready for your input!!!!

Not sure I would. I think he can pitch better but he is one of those guys that I would be worried about putting him in every time. He might throw 3 straight quality games and then I would think ok he is back on track only to give up 7 ER against the Royals or something. Let him clear waivers and if he does then maybe, would depend on who you will drop for him.

Considering your fine stable of pitchers, I don't think you should blow a number 3 waiver priority on Beckett. He's just simply not worth it anymore.
