Any of my pitchers worth dropping? Liriano, Lewis, Dempster

Postby lefthandedforlife » Thu Apr 14, 2011 7:09 pm

I've got

P Jhoulys Chacin
P Jordan Walden
SP Jon Lester
SP Jered Weaver
SP Francisco Liriano
SP Colby Lewis
SP Ryan Dempster
RP Brian Wilson
RP Joe Nathan

I would consider picking up

SP Carlos Carassco
SP Michael Pineda
SP Hiroki Kuroda
SP Zach Britton
SP AJ Burnett
SP Jorge De la Rosa
RP Sean Burnett

I am really on the fence on dropping Liriano. I've got Frank Francisco on the DL and will probably drop him too see as he is not doing well in rehab. Any thoughts?

Britton/Pineda over Dempster/Lewis
I even like DeLaRosa over those 2.

I also like Kuroda over those 2. He is very friendly to the WHIP. I like Britton a lot but would pass on him because you have better options who aren't rookies inthe AL East. Kuroda and Pineda for me.

I forgot to mention that I am in a 10 team league that is HTH points.

Also, what do you think of streaming?

Britton and Pineda are must adds! Swap out Dempster and Lewis.

As far as streaming, there is shame in streaming for the sake of streaming, unless you are considering match-ups and you make it an art form... Otherwise you'd just be that guy without anything better to do than hang his hat on a sequence of flukes

I dropped Lewis for Kuroda but I'm still on the fence about dropping Liriano or Dempster. Dempster is CHC's ace and Liriano is terrible right now. Seems that every other year is an off year for Liriano looking at his stats. Can either guy turn it around?
