#2 WW Priority for Liriano?

Postby JRM4833 » Wed May 04, 2011 9:24 am

12 team, roto league using standard cats plus OPS and QS. Someone in one of my leagues dropped Liriano before yesterday's game. I have the #2 WW Priority but am not in need of pitching at all right now. My current pitchers:

Jered Weaver
Cliff Lee
Tommy Hanson
Dan Haren
Brett Myers
Michael Pineda
Aaron Harang
Heath Bell
John Axford
Andrew Bailey (DL)

I'd likely drop Harang or a bench player like Jonathan Herrera. Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't watched much of Liriano this year, and I did not watch last night. That said, Francisco Liriano has a lot of talent with one of the best sliders in the game. For a great breakdown on Liriano, check out this 2010 alds preview by theYankeeU:

I wouldn't worry about early season struggles with someone of Liriano's potential. He was the 77th overall drafted player in fantasy leagues before the season based on the median draft position charts. Also, Harang is pitching well in SD, but do you trust him when he goes on the road?

I would definitely use the waiver on him. Harang looks like his little streak is over, so I would feel comfortable dropping him, or Herrera.

I'd make the claim and dump Herrera.
