Stauffer over Britton? WHIR

Postby TrippySG » Thu Jun 30, 2011 1:02 pm

Stauffer is available in my league and has looked real sharp over the past month. Given Zach Britton's decline and the fact that this is a non-keeper league, is Stauffer more valuable and would you drop Britton for him?

I'd definitely pickup Stauffer over Britton. My thing is to always lean towards a NL pitcher over an AL pitcher whenever I think they are close. Even though the Pad's O is weak his park, league and stuff for me would push the needle in his direction.

Help me out please:

I definitely like Stauffer over Britton.

Whosyomamma was right about the NL and AL match-ups too. Stauffer gets better match-ups where he doesn't have to face a DH every outing, and gets to face a pitcher instead. He also doesn't have to pitch against division rivals like the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays, and Blue Jays.

yes yes yes to Stauffer here. Britton will be limited and possibly shut down at year's end. Not too sure about Stauffer but just the fact alone that he's decent and pitches at Petco clinches it.

Yes, take Stauffer.
Even if you assume they are roughly equal pitchers, Stauffer pitches in a better park and in a much weaker offensive division.


can you comment on my Keeper situation?
