Drop Lowrie for Garland? (WHIR!!!)

Postby GiantFanatic » Thu May 12, 2011 6:01 pm

Standard H2H Yahoo, 12 teams

So I'm in a tight fight with a strong pitching staff this week (10 starts to my 7). It's neck and neck so far and I'm thinking it will be tight (he's up in SO), would like to start Garland in a sweeeet Pit match-up, but to do so I need to drop Lowrie.

What would you do? Would you drop Lowrie based on the roster below and his overall value? I don't need him, and I think he's actually a little overvalued (he's fallen off the last few weeks), but he does provide nice depth with all his eligibility (SS, 2B, 3B in Yahoo).

C - R. Martin
1B - Pujols
2B - N. Walker
3B - A. Gordon
SS - Rollins
OF - Zobrist, Sizemore, Gardner
Util - McCann
Bench - L. Morrison, Lowrie, Hart
DL - Utley

SP - Kershaw, Buchholz, Garza
P - Greinke, Morrow, Cueto
RP - Soria, Papelbon
Bench - Bumgarner, Bailey

In case you're interested, the following is the pitching staff I'm up against... lot of two starters:

SP - Lincecum, Lilly, Myers
P - J. Johnson, Drabek, J. Garcia
RP - Hellickson, B. Wilson
Bench - Norris, Santana, Broxton

Leave a link and I'll reply in kind.

Thanks,
GF

I'd hang on to Lowrie. It's still early. Think long term. You're right: Lowrie's valuable with his flexibility. Garland's pretty worthless in the long run.
