Are you holding onto Liriano?

Postby swani182 » Sat May 28, 2011 1:28 pm

He's on my bench, but I've got Pagan coming off the DL. I can use to OF help, I don't really need Liriano, but I don't like the idea of dropping him either. The league is 5x5 roto with 11 teams, but I'm really just curious where's he's at in other leagues?

I have him too. I am hoping that he's just having another belly-ache this week and does not end up on the DL.

In my 11 team 5x5 roto league he is currently rostered but has been dropped and picked up at least 3 times now. I picked him up after the first drop just before the no-no but lost patience a few starts later (no takers for a trade). I think he is fine to drop if you need the extra roster spots or no one is willing to offer anything of value. I also can't fault someone for stashing him in hopes that he might ever reach his potential.

I'm only in a nine team league and I am keeping him. He threw a no-hitter so he obviously has something left. I think he is just a wuss that will start to show up in the summer.

I did not see the No hitter but from what i remember reading the defense helped him out at least twice. He did walk 6 hitters. And it was a pretty poor hitting White Sox team at the time.
Without looking I think he only had two K's.

There are better pitchers out there on the WW I can almost promise you, unless your league runs like...30 pitchers each ;p

In the league I participate in, he was dropped the day after the no-hitter. Still available weeks later (12 player league).

OF is the deepest position right now. Honestly, I would hold Liriano and maybe look elsewhere outside of Pagan.

Note that Pagan is playing with a stress fracture in his rib.
