Do I pick up Lowe and drop Niese or Jackson?

Postby Habituous » Thu Jul 14, 2011 10:26 pm

Someone just dropped Derek Lowe, and I can get him on the Waiver Wire and drop either Jonathon Niese or Edwin Jackson. See my roster and scoring below. I feel like my current pitching lineup, once Clay Buchholz returns, minus Jackson and Niese but plus Lowe would be pretty decent. Opinions?

Also, someone just dropped Jason Bay, so I'm assuming he's not worth dropping any of my hitters.

Jackson has been pretty bad this year so i wouldn't have a problem picking up Lowe for him.

I'd just stay put personally. Lowe might have a nice September run but Jackson albeit inconsistant is about on par with Lowe but has more K ability and Niese is 24 and no where to go but up if you ask me.

Instead of Lowe, I might drop one of Niese or EJax for Bay I guess for depth. Toss up really.
