Who to drop for Nolasco? WHIR

Postby RUnited » Wed May 11, 2011 8:02 am

Ok, so I keep reading that Nolasco is a sleeping giant of a starting pitcher...

I've got many grade B pitchers in my squad and I don't mind dropping one to pick up Nolasco in case he becomes the next Josh Johnson. My league opponents are also scrambling for pitchers, but no one seems to have spotted Nolasco just yet. i don't have much time... here are my pitchers. It's not a keeper league...

Weaver
Ubaldo
CJ Wilson
Chachin
De La Rosa
Masterson
Jaime Garcia

Who should I drop for Nolasco or this good enough to hold and not make a move?

I'm trying to trade for him at the moment along with another trade for Ubaldo. I would drop Masterson as he is the worst of your pitchers despite being very good. Nolasco is the guy to get now over him. Help here please;

Agreed. I like Nolasco more than Masterson.

UPDATE:

Ok... will this change your mind of dropping Masterson for Nolasco:

The following picthers are still available in the free agents pool... I picked up De La Rosa over these pitchers. Should they be ranked above Nolasco??

Brandon Morrow
Gio Gonzalez

It's a shallow league, 7 teams, so there are some odd players left in the free agent pool..

I would definitely pick up Gio. His K/9 seems to be getting better. ;-D

Nolasco has lots of upside, but is a bigger risk than Gio Gonzalez IMO. And definitely drop Masterson -- he is due for a long, hard return to the mean.
