Goodbye Niese.

At C, probably just hang onto Martin.

No way can u think about dropping Luebke at this point. Niese gets the boot 1st and then I show Hughes the door. Nolasco has been pretty solid this year before tonights blow-up. Take a look at mine please?

Also have Soto available. I know it sucks Martin really one in the same, he is pissing me off lately though.

Ya I'm dropping Niese or Hughes. You're probably tempted to drop Nolasco after todays stellar effort :-P but I wouldn't over react.

Definitely don't drop Luebke at this point.

Keep Martin at C.

Check mine?

Based on certain things, I would drop Nolasco. While I would not rate today's implosion as significant (The Padres have been on a hitting tear lately), it becomes glaring in the big picture.

Nolasco (outside of the 2 CG's and 1 shoutout against the Astros and A's respectively) has good stuff, and Niese (who is a lefty, which is always a plus, IMO) relies on a curveball more. However, a lot of Niese's last few starts and wins have come against some good offensive teams, while his losses earlier in the season (hence the inflated ERA) have come against some good teams as well. Add into the mix that the Mets are hitting and are getting Wright back (which is significant for defense, if anything else), I choose Niese over Nolasco.

And drop Martin for Ruiz. Cervelli will probably be platooning the rest of the way, but he will get his share of playing time.

Niese has also been remarkably consistent. Goodbye Nolasco for Lester. Bedard and Hughes are a tossup.
