Wandy Rodriguez or Bud Norris? WHIR

Postby JJGBPD » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:10 pm

Which one is more valuable to keep as a starter in an 8 team 5x5 head to head league? I need to drop one to pick up an OF (Snider or Joyce) for a bench bat as I'm iffy on Braun's health. Thanks!

I think Wandy has better stuff but Norris will get you more K's. Depends what your staff needs IMO. But in a vacuum, I'd probably say Norris

I like Wandy because:

1: He's a lefty
2: He'll get you a decent amount of K's, QS, and his ERA and WHIP will be much better.
3: He seems healthy so far.

Also, grab Snider over Joyce. :-)

I'm a fan of Bud Norris personally, so I would have to say go with him. Wandy is a little more proven but I think this is the year Bud Norris finally breaks out.

I'd lean to Keeping Norris (and picking up Snider).

Your league settings may be a factor in the pitcher choice here.

I don't have any league settings that would be a factor. Just looking for the better arm for the long term. I'm new to fantasy and don't know much about either. I saw Wandy was definitely ranked better pre-season, but Bud Norris is virtually the same with wins, ERA and WHIP... but has a lot more K's than Wandy....

I like Wandy better. With Norris, you may get good K numbers, but Wandy is a better rounded pitcher and if he is traded to a contender, would be that much more valuable imo. Also, go with Snider.

Wandy is a better 2nd half pitcher (hopefully after the inconsistent 1st half), Norris will get you K's, but I would keep Wandy over Norris.
