Liriano's back - who to drop?

Postby cs3 » Thu Jun 09, 2011 5:23 pm

I picked up Liriano when another owner dropped him right before he hit the DL.
Had a pretty good result in his first game back but still some control issues.
Im going to see how he fares vs Texas this weekend and if he looks good then im going to activate him next week.

The question is, which pitcher to drop to make room for him?
Ill also have Beachy coming back soon, so keep that in mind as well.


SP: Jon Lester (SP), Daniel Hudson (SP), Jordan Zimmermann (SP)
BN: Michael Pineda (SP), Brandon Morrow (SP), Max Scherzer (SP), Mat Latos (SP), Charlie Morton (SP)
RP: Craig Kimbrel (RP), Fernando Salas (RP)
P: Huston Street (RP), Sergio Santos (RP)

DL: Francisco Liriano (SP), Brandon Beachy (SP), Stephen Strasburg (SP)

I suppose the easy answer would be Morton, but im a pretty big believer in him and hes been very good so far and getting better over the the past month. At the beginning of the year dropping Scherzer would have seemed inconceivable, but hes been absolutely killing me in every cat besides Wins. Is he even an option?
Zimmerman has dominated now for 7 starts.
What do you think?

ill be happy to help you out if you leave me a link :-)

Personally, it would be Morton for me.

It's gotta be Morton, he just walks to many batters.

Looks like the consensus is in. Good Luck Chuck it is.

What would you do when Beachy comes back?

I mentioned this in the Cheering/Venting thread a while back, but do you think Beachy's time off will allow him to pitch throughout H2H playoffs rather than get shut down or moved to the bullpen?

i assume youre a Braves fan... do people out there think Beachy is guaranteed his starting gig when hes fully healthy?

Zimmerman has been really god of late. Hudson not so much, but i hate to drop a guy with his K ability.
Is Scherzer ever going to become the pitcher we saw in the second half of 2010?
because hes easily been my worst SP for the past month. an absolute ratio killer

Exactly I like Hudson's K ability, so I would drop Zimmerman over Hudson.


I do think this time off for Beachy will allow him to pitch deeper into the season, hopefully deep into the H2H playoffs. And from everything I have read Beachy is guaranteed his spot back in rotation when he comes off the DL, he was pitching lights out before he got injured.

Morton! He's a low end guy who's had a solid year so far. I expect a correction, like all low end guys who are doing well.
