Who would you pick up? Harang or Masterson?

Postby rocknje » Wed Apr 13, 2011 8:42 pm

Hello Everyone,

I am interested in picking up Harang vs HOU or Pick up Masterson vs BAL. Which one do you like the best or neither? Also, besides for Friday's start, who do you think for the long run as well. I am considering dropping Esmil Rogers for one of them.


Thank you.

Harand. Plays in SD plus in the NL East. At the very least a good home option. Seems like I have seen this kind of thing from Masterson before and then nothing for the next 5 months of the year.

Harang for me. Petco park is a goldmine and he should be healthier than he was last year. He's proven he can be a workhorse and a fine source of K's when he's right.

I'm in Masterson's corner. The guy has the stuff to be an ace, just needs to get LHB out. If you want to go with Harang for now, keep a close eye on Masterson. He was terrific in the final two months of 2010 posting ERA's of 3.28 and 2.25 in Aug/Sept, respectively with K/IP of 24/35 and 18/20 in those two months as well.

If he can string together a few more solid starts, I think this might be his breakout year. He has a good defense and good offense behind him this season, with a very good back end of the bullpen in Perez-Sipp-Perez to hold leads for him.

Thank you for all the great advice. I haven't made a decision yet, but I will ponder on the advice a little bit more. Anyone else?

Harang doesn't offer much, whereas if you took Masterson and he flops it is very easy to recover with minimal damage. The upside is higher with Masterson and it ain't close.

Thank you for the reply. I am almost there on making a decision. The only reason I would pick Harang would be because he is playing against @HOU. Will see. Anyone else?

Keep Wood and grab Masterson. There's a better chance that you might get Beachy back from waivers, but which pitcher would you rather ride out the rest of the year should you not be able to get them back?
