Who to drop for Carmona? WHIR

Postby BlueJaysFan » Thu May 12, 2011 7:59 pm

It's funny because I just dropped Carmona yesterday, but I really want him back and he is starting tomorrow. The commissioner just removed waivers two days ago so I'm able to re-add him. He has been pitching well lately and I need some pitching help. Yesterday I picked up Morton for him, as I read that he will have a breakout year and has potential to be the next doc. I would prefer to keep him, but he might be a bust. I also don’t want to drop either of my catchers. I'm thinking of dropping Damon, but he's playing well and has trade value. What should I do?

I don't like either much, but Mortons K/9 is really bad.

I'd drop either Morton or Hefner.

Are any of your guys DL-eligible? Didn't check to see if you're league is a keeper. If not, drop Morales like a bad habit; he's done for the year.

I actually dropped Morales and added Rolen to my DL ( i forgot to switch it; I copied and pasted the line-up from my last post). I doubt I'll keep him when healthy but he's worth a look. I'm considering dropping Hafner but he's playing well. I guess I can afford to lose him though, as the rest of my bench is deep. As for Morton, Like I said I added him cause he is projected to be the next Doc. I know it sounds laughable, but I thought he might be worth the investment.

Who projected him to be the next doc, lol?
He's already 27, with a career 5.84 K/9.
Not exactly good numbers.

I don't think anyone has projected Morton to be the next Halladay; rather, he changed his delivery in the offseason to mimic Halladay's. That's no guarantee of success, however, and I'd drop him for Carmona.

here is one of the articals I read:

http://www.greenwichtime.com/sports/art ... 370462.php

Quick question: Morton started today and played 2 innings, and then the game got delayed. Will he star tmrw? I'm assuming he won’t, but I just want to make sure.
