Bumgarner or Humber.....WHIR! Thanks

Postby Bosny » Sun Jun 26, 2011 10:50 pm

I am in a non keeper, H2H league. After Bumgarner's blow up earlier this week, another team dropped him. I have Humber and am thinking of maybe dropping him for Bumgarner after his really impressive performance tonight. Humber is getting more wins and with Danks hurt the 6 man rotation is over for now. Bum has had 11 of 12 QS and looked awesome tonight but struggles for wins with SF. Any suggestions/input? Need to move quickly if I want Bumgarner as his performance tonight should catch someone's attention and he will be off WW shortly. My other starters are Gallardo, Chacin, Gio, Bedard, Sherzer, Zimmerman and Beachy. Are others more suitable to drop for Bumgarner or should I stand pat? Thank you.

Thanks for your help. I keep a really thin bench and hope for no injuries. We start 5 SP each week and I have 8 -rotating in 2 starters and best match up. Here is my Team:

C-Montero
1B-Fielder
2B-Pedroia
SS-Reyes
3B-Zimmerman
OF-Bruce, Ellsbury, Adam Jones
DH-Gaby Sanchez, Morse
Bench-Wigginton and Reynolds (2 of highest point scorers in my league over last 4 weeks)
SP- Gllardo, Chacin, Scherzer, Zimmerman, Gio, Bedard, Humber, Beachy

Open to any suggestions. Thanks!

Well I think other than Bum's implosion last start, he has posted like 8-9 straight quality starts. Bum also offers more SO's. The only thing I don't like is on SF he gets limited wins whereas Humber has done better with the Sox offense behind him. You can't go wrong with either. Most seem to say Bum will get better whereas many expect Humber to decline. Bum may be safer over the rest of the season.

Thanks. Leaning towards dropping Humber due to Bumgarner's upside.

I'd make the switch. Bumgarner has been very solid for a while now besides the one bump in the road, and he's got the advantage of pitching in San Francisco half of the time.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Bumgarner has been a beast for 11 of his last 12 starts.

Help me?
