Brandon Morrow worth the #1 WW. Quick answers if possible.

Postby gocards » Sun Jun 12, 2011 2:16 am

I have the #1 WW priority in a 10 team 25 man 5x5 H2H league and someone dropped Morrow a couple of days ago. He is on waivers until Sunday, so just a couple of hours from now. I would drop Orlando Cabrera to pick him up.

Work has been crazy and I haven't been paying that much attention to baseball in the last few weeks but is there any reason I should not grab him? I know he hasn't been great , and was shelled today but this seems an easy decision, right?

My pitching staff

P J Shields
P Z Grienke
P J Sanchez
P J Collmentor
P R Volgesong
P N Feliz
P J Hanrahan
P S Santos
P B Wilson

Bench F Liriano -- I just picked him up right now.

I'm in the minority when it comes to Morrow, but I'm sorry, no he's not. He has been a wreck all season. The guy might offer nice SO numbers, but he doesn't help with wins, ERA, WHIP or saves. A 1 category pitcher is not worth it to me. He's at a 2-4 record with a 5.63 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Depending who else is available, until Morrow starts showing any kind of consistency, I would personally stay away. We all know the potential is there, but not yet this season.

Morrow has not "been a wreck all season." His K-rate alone can make him a valuable addition to a staff, if you use him in the right spots. But I agree that, with the staff you already have, there is no need to spend the #1 spot on Morrow. He is a spot starter for me right now, and my staff is probably not as good as yours.

No Way! He plays in a hitters park and the K's aren't worth it. Unless you're just gonna pitch him in away games....... Home ERA is over 8, Away is around 2. But I definitely wouldn't waste a #1 on him.
