Lohse?

Postby Elephant Riders » Wed Apr 20, 2011 8:42 pm

Kyle Lohse is a FA and I'm wondering if I make the add, if for no other reason than to face the Nats.

SP: Wandy, J. Sanchez
RP: Wilson, Walden
P: Santos. Collins, Storen
BN: Holland, C. Lewis, Haren, Jurrjens
DL: Johan

I thinking of cutting ties with Lewis. I was already wrong about Ian Kennedy and let him go earlier this week.

Any thoughts?

I think you gotta give Lewis a few more starts before you really consider dropping him. I think it'd be a panic drop if you made the move.

Who are the other starting pitchers available?

The reason I ask is I'm not sure it's right to believe in Lohse right now. Why?

- His current opposing BABIP is .246, completely unsustainable, especially considering his career number is .305.
- He's walking batters at an obscenely great ratio of 0.81 (Career, 2.75)

In the end, Lohse is what he is. He will win between 6 and 12 games with an ERA between 4.25 and 4.75...in other words, completely mediocre in real baseball and basically useless in fantasy baseball. If you already had Lohse, I'd suggest to take advantage of his hot streak and strike a deal while his value is peaking.

Hope that helps; good luck!

The hot hands out of that group are Tomlin and Chen as well as Lohse.

Look @ their schedules and cut your ties with Lewis with no regrets.

If you aren't picking him up to use while he is hot...you're not very smart. You should have grabbed him weeks ago. For those that are arguing against it, well it's all just a bunch of numbers you are spouting...otherwise there is no reason not to go with it.

if you have a DL spot I would definitely pick up Beachy and put him in it, he looks like a very promising pitcher. But match-ups really determine what other pitcher you should get on your team, and you could just leave a spot open on your bench for the pitcher with the best match-up that week. A very good strategy to help win majority of the pitching categories.

You should be dropping Holland for Lohse, right now!
