Pick up De La Rosa, Brandon Morrow or Gio Gonzales? WHIR

Postby RUnited » Mon May 09, 2011 3:52 am

So I made a trade this morning that sent Jonathan Sanchez and Jeff Fracouer to the other team for Jose Bautista.

Little did I know, the guy I traded with dropped De La Rosa into free agent pool to make space for Jonathan Sanchez!

I have Ubaldo & Chachin on my team already. Is it too risky to have 3 Rockies pitchers if I pick up De La Rosa?

I hear he's been very good even in the losses and no decisions.

Brandon Morrow and Gio Gonzalez are also available in the free agent. Or if they're worth to pick up at all...

Please help decide who to pick up... WHIR

Went with De La Rosa simply because he looks on form to matching his 2009 wonder work.

The Rockies' offence will also give him more wins being so good away from home this season.

How are any of the three pitchers you mentioned available? All three should be owned almost universally.

I'd have them ranked Gio, Morrow, DLR.

I went with De La Rosa, but I probably should have picked up Gio, given how cold Rockies have gone the last week or so. Their bullpen isn't strong enough to hold the leads that their starters give them. By the time it gets to the 9th it's already a close game or tied game and Street's opportunities are drying up.

These pitchers are still available because we're in a shallow league. Only 7 players.

Adam Lind and Mike Aviles were available until last week. I dropped Ichiro for Crawford (someone got frustrated and dropped him) and Ichiro's still not picked up after 2 weeks!

1. who in the world traded Jose the Great for sanchez and frenchy? that is almost vetoable
2. how are all 3 of those pitchers available but sanchez is owned?? im a huge giants fan and that still makes zero sense to me.
3. Morrow, Gio, DLR

Lol! I was thinking the same thing, especially since morrow and gio are potentially just as good or better than Sanchez and francouer is just a flash in the pan.
