Pick up the red hot Ryan Vogelsong?

Postby erjohnson1 » Tue Jun 14, 2011 12:13 am

What do you guys think about picking up Vogelsong? He's been amazing this year but all of my starting pitchers are pretty good and consistent. So do I take a chance with Vogelsong?

Current Pitchers:
SP - Jon Lester (BOS)
SP - Mat Latos (SD)
SP - Anibal Sanchez (FLA)
SP - Hiroki Kuroda (LA)
SP - Daniel Hudson (ARI)
SP - Jhoulys Chacin (COL)
SP - Chad Billingsley (LA)

Any of these worth dropping for Vogelsong?

I wouldn't drop any of your current SPs for him.

I'd drop Kuroda....... And I'm sure you're not too happy with Billingsley, but I wouldn't drop him.

Drop Kuroda. Even if it means you're picking up your neighbor's dog's poop. :-D

This. Vogelsong is pitching out of his mind + for the offensively hapless Giants.

I wouldn't drop straight any of your SP. If you can stream matchups, and Vogelsong has a better matchup than Kuroda, go for it. But I'd look at matchups, matchups, matchups with Vogelsong.

I dropped Kuroda for Vogelsong. Do I now drop Billingsley for Eric Bedard who is also available?
