Best 2? Morrow-Norris-Beachy-Matusz? WHIR

Postby JJGBPD » Thu Jun 02, 2011 6:44 pm

I'm looking at picking up 2 of these in a head to head 5x5 8 team league.

Brandon Morrow
Bud Norris
Brandon Beachy
Brian Matusz

I know many people on these boards are high on Morrow, but I've dropped him once already because he KILLS me in WHIP and ERA almost every week, hasn't helped with wins because of that and only gets me SO's. I had Beachy prior to going on the DL and I loved him, so I'm thinking of grabbing him back off DL soon before someone else does. Which 2 would you take? Thanks!

First off, absolutely grab Matusz. As for the second, I would say Morrow, then Beachy, then Norris. So obviously if you are against Morrow, wait on Beachy.

Norris is definitely pitching better than Morrow right now, but Norris is basically outperforming anything he can actually do whereas Morrow has tons of upside.

Help with mine?

How is Norris outperforming anything he can actually do?

Matusz has the lowest K/9 by far, so i see him as the riskiest.

Morrow has struggled a bit, but he has the most upside imo.
His xFIP is very good, as is Beachy and Norris.

All 3 are worthy.
Since Beachy is hurt, i would go Morrow/Norris, but could go Beachy over Norris.
