Is My Rotation Average? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Fri May 20, 2011 2:18 pm

There have been some weeks where I've finished with lower than a 1.8 ERA, but there are also weeks where I've finished with a 4.0+ ERA. What do you think of my pitching rotation? Should anyone be dropped?

SPs:
Verlander
Oswalt
Liriano
Hellickson
Anderson
Britton
Cueto

RPs:
Marmol
Putz
Storen
Guerrier
Bailey (DL)
Contreras (DL)

In a 12-team league, Verlander is a good #1, Anderson and Oswalt should be fine as #2s or #3s when they are healthy, but both are injury risks. You have a lot of upside between Liriano/Cueto/Hellickson. Britton's K-rate doesn't do it for me, but judging by your explanation of weekly ERAs I take it that you're in a H2H league in which case K-rate doesn't matter. I'd keep a close eye on the trio of Liriano/Cueto/Hellickson, if they falter then consider moving for an SP but for now you should be fine.
