Who to drop Liriano for?

Postby WakaJawaka » Wed May 11, 2011 9:13 am

I've had enough of this guy, so independent of need, who do you like the most in a 12-team keeper league as a replacement? Will help in response.

Depends on what you need. I like Joyce and Bailey.

If you want to ride the hot hand go with Joyce. Bailey seems like he's finally put his stuff together and he's worth a pick up also. His recent two outings were awesome.

Id also go Bailey on this one, he has always had the upside of a staff ace and now that the pressures off he could continue to impress

Do you need to pickup a pitcher if you drop Liriano? I would think it's still early to drop Liriano. However, Jennings needs to be scooped up in a keeper league ASAP.

I just can't justify keeping Liriano any longer. There's not a shred of hope in his underlying stats that makes it worth sitting on him until he turns it around. Right now, my starting pitching staff looks like this:

Sabathia
Scherzer
Pineda
A. Sanchez
G. Gonzalez
J. Zimmerman
and now Bailey

It's deep, but there aren't any juggernauts like Halladay, Weaver or Lincecum.

I don't know if dropping someone like Liri is the best idea. I understand giving up on him ... I'm about ready to do the same ... but you should be able to find someone who values Liri enough to give you something. If not, I like Joyce out of the pitchers you listed.

What?!? You ever heard of this guy Sabathia? He only has 6 seasons with 15+ Wins, and only last yr got 197 K, 230 IP, 3.18 ERA, 21 Wins. But yeah you dont have any juggernauts
