Dempster or E. Jackson or Jurrjens?

Postby leonsbrother » Thu Apr 21, 2011 4:48 pm

Dempster has kept screwing up in the past few weeks, and I just picked up Edwin Jackson, but I know what kind of value I can get from Jackson. Now Jurrjens looks pretty good after 2 games. Should I take Jurrjens and drop one of the other 2?

Additionally, I am pretty much winning on all pitching categories except SV, should I drop E. Jackson and pick some closer, such as Boggs or Aardsma?

I am playing regular 5x5 weekly HtH

My pitching staff:
SP:
Josh Johnson
Jared Weaver
Brett Myers
Wandy Rodriguez
Jaime Garcia
CJ Wilson
Ryan Dempster
Edwin Jackson
RP:
Frank Francisco
Jordan Walden
Kyle Farnsworth

WHIR, leave your thread.

You have a really nice base to work with, I would try for Jurrjens' upside with ERA and WHIP or Jackson's upside with Ks and Wins (once the Sox get rolling).
If you're looking for closer help, is trading Jackson, Dempster or both for a good closer an option?

I'd probably drop Jackson for Jurrjens, he's looked great so far. You are going to need help at RP, but that can be found as the season goes on; just keep an eye out for potential closers being moved around
