Which Pitcher to Drop? (WHIR!)

Postby sluggerbrewcrew » Fri Jun 03, 2011 2:42 pm

Take a look at my pitchers i'm going to drop one, but can't decide. I'm looking to drop one for a rotational spot, but think I should maybe keep 4 relievers. If anyone feels like ranking em for me for what they think. WHIR!

SP - Justin Verlander
SP - Zack Greinke
SP - Gio Gonzalez
SP - Michael Pineda
SP - Mat Latos
SP - Josh Tomlin
SP - Brandon Morrow

RP - Heath Bell
RP - Andrew Bailey
RP - Kyle Farnsworth
RP - Jordan Walden

If you want to keep 4 relievers(I would suggest doing so just incase) I'd go

Verlander
Gonzalez
Grienke
Pineda
Latos
Tomlin
Morrow

Out of that I say Morrow is your drop candidate you get enough Ks from Verlander and Grienke, Morrow gets lots of Ks but more than likely to kill your ERA and Whip

Morrow is the odd-man-out for me. I'd drop him.

Why do you like a marginal guy like Tomlin over a K machine?

Tomlin first, Morrow after that. I don't get why so many people are enamored with Tomlin. He's a dime a dozen on the waiver wire for spot starts. CLE won't play this well for the rest of the year.

Drop Tomlin, his IP/K rate is nearing .5

Its a tough one between Morrow and Tomlin. Yes Morrow is a K machine, but he's not winning much, and his WHIP has been too high for contention in that category. Tomlin stays (for now) and Morrow's gone. Thanks guys.

Good luck with that.
Tomlin .213 babip
Morrow .368 babip xFIP 3.12
11/K/9 versus 5K/9.
Not close imo.
