Well, Madison Bumgarner just got dropped in this league. I gotta pick him up, right?

I don't really need another Starting Pitcher. Right now Bumgarner would probably be my #7 or #8 SP. And since we have the max innings set at 1250 I only really get to ust 5 or 6 SP's. So Bumgarner would be a bench player/insurance policy for me.

And even though Bumgarner is a great keeper prospect, I think it is unlikely that he would make my list of 10 keepers for next season. As of right now, my top 10 keepers would be: Phillips, A-Rod, Tulowitzki, Bautista, Hamilton, Crawford, Upton, Lincicum, Hamels and Gallardo.........Bumand garner doesnt beat out those guys. And Bumgarner is only about even with the other bubble players: Lind, Butler and Marcum.

But I still need to pick him up, right? Even if he is just a bargaining chip/insurance policy? Maybe he can help me get the closer I deperately need........and at least I would be keeping him off other people's rosters, right?

Does it make a difference that it will cost me my #1 waiver priority to pick him up?


So, after all that, the question remains:

Should I use my #1 waiver priority to pick up Madison "He's Only 21 Years Old" Bumgarner?


Thanks in advance.....of course, WHIR!

I think it does make a difference that its costing you your #1 waiver wire pick. That could be used to grab a upcoming prospect or a better player off the waivers later. You probably could just wait till the waivers cleared and get him off the FA so it doesnt cost you.

And who would you drop if you did decide to get Bumgarner?

obviously, Padilla and Crow are expendable, so I am not worried about who to drop if I do pick him up

Yeah very true, I'm just not sure if it's worth spending your #1 waiver spot. I would just wait till the waivers clear and grab him immediately.

Always loved MadBum but I'd save #1 priority.
