Stash or drop Brett Anderson? WHIR

Postby exm » Sat Jun 18, 2011 11:21 am

I'm in 14 player H2H keeper league and with 14 players, there's no good pitching on the wire. Because I'm hoping to make the playoffs, I picked up Hughes and Anderson and stashed them on the DL. Now that Tommy Hanson is also DL-bound I need to decide to make space on my DL (3 slots only) or to drop B Anderson. *IF* he can avoid surgery, his target return date will be at he end of July.

So... My quesion is: hang on to Anderson or not?

Also, someone dropped C Carpenter. I guess it can't hurt to pick him up, correct? Is it worth my #8 slot waiver?

As it's a keeper, I'd probably drop Hughes instead. I love Hughes and I think he's actually slightly underrated at this point, but Anderson's ceiling is undoubtedly higher. Both seem to be legit injury risks going forward, so I'd keep the higher upside. I think your rotation is decent enough to hold the fort in a 14 teamer in the meantime, depending on how long Hanson's out (sounds like he'll probably be okay).
