Pitchers - Worth it ?

Postby mortl » Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:57 am

My Current Pitching is this:

Ricky Nolasco
Matt Harrison
Randy Wolf
Bartolo Colon
Shaun Marcum
Daniel Hudson
Max Scherzer
James Shields
Francisco Cordero
Chris Perez

What do you guys think ? Theres a few interesting guys on the FA list that i might pick up for their next games. Paul Maholm is on the FA list and Scott Baker is available and he has very impressive numbers. Maholm is @ Houston on Saturday up against Norris but i like Maholm and the surging Pirates here but still im not sure. Im really considering Baker he seems to be a hidden gem but let me know your thoughts people...

Maholm is on a role.. against houston even with norris pitching is a good matchup.

I would think about swapping maybe wolf? or Colon.. Wolf seems to have lost his hot streak.

Baker always seems to be a hidden gem in fantasy leagues. While I like him a lot, Maholm is doing well right now and I would go for him.

Eh, I'm not that confident in Malholm going forward.

I agree that if a move is to be made, Randy Wolf is the man to drop. I would actually prefer picking up Baker myself, but it's your decision. I don't think you can go wrong with either, I just think Baker has more upside.
