Brandon McCarthy, Erik Bedard or Kyle Lohse??

Postby TheGhost » Tue May 03, 2011 12:49 am

Just looking for my last pitching option. 10 teams, roto league. NOT a keeper league. I can only have one. Thoughts?

Complicated question... I think the best pitcher of the bunch is Bedard but he has health concerns and he plays for Seattle. McCarthy could be the 2nd best pitcher but does he have the stamina to pitch 200 ip? Lohse has looked amazing but history says he's not this good of a pitcher, I think he falls to earth. If you want to gamble go with Bedard.

Help me? viewtopic.php?t=429381

Bedard has the potential to be best out of that group... however I've watched a few of his starts and he doesn't look right yet. He doesn't have an overpowering fastball- never has had one - and being able to spot it to set up his great curve is crucial. Watching him this year it seems like he just doesn't have it. I'd watch list him - if he puts together a couple good starts, jump on it. I think the Lohse pixie dust is over... got shelled by Florida tonight. McCarthy might be the guy to roll with as a safe bet, number 5 starter type.
