NEED KEY ADVICE!! WHIR always

Postby BiGAnT » Fri Jun 10, 2011 11:38 pm

Hey guys,
I need some help in deciding what exactly to do with my team...my pitching appears to be decent but I'm struggling in ERA and WHIP.
There are two Free Agents that I am interested in: in order of interest: Humber and Gee. The question is, should I drop anyone for either of these guys?

Also, I am about to make a trade: My Hart and Carpenter for Ortiz and Danks (Thoughts? - I know its kind of risky so I'm not sure about it just yet but Ortiz helps my HR and RBIs so much, and I am lacking in that category-I just traded for Quentin too so he will help also)

WIth this trade I would have Vlad on my bench along with Rios. Rios has come alive his last couple games after getting benched but I still think its too early to start him...but I feel like I can't drop a 5th round draft pick, because it would be a waste. And Vlad is not himself, and nobody wants him in a trade so he is on my bench until I see otherwise also, but should he be dropped completely along with Rios? I'm so confused.

Then, I could drop Lyon (who I just picked up after I saw he could be the Astros closer again, but he looked bad tonight and I have Melancon) and/or Aaron Crow who is a solid setup man but will he close again if Soria does NOT get traded?

IF YOU READ ALL THIS AND HAVE ANY INPUT I APPRECIATE IT A LOT! POST LINKS AND I WILL GET BACK TO YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ;-D

Here's my team:
C Yadier Molina
1B Ryan howard
2B Brandon Phillips
3B Jhonny Peralta
SS Jimmy Rollins
OF Matt Kemp
OF Carlos Quentin
OF Rajai Davis
Util Corey Hart
BN Vladimir Guerrero
BN Alex Rios

SP Roy Halladay
SP Gio Gonzalez
SP Jair Jurrjens

RP Mark Melancon
P Chris Carpenter
P Brian Matusz

There's a lot here.

1.) I like Humber over Gee. (I am not sure If I would drop anyone for these guys yet)
2.) Im not too crazed about that trade. Danks I am just not a big fan of and I feel Carpenter is alot to give. But as you said you need HR and RBI's so it may be a little risky but could work out.
3.) I would Dump Lyon If anything

Absolutely agreed, Lyon may be the closer someday soon but he is most likely to get blown up and screw up your ERA/Whip fantastically while gaining very few saves. I like D-Gee but it's also a chance to have a rotational spot for matchups and 2-starts as well.
