Assuming this is a yahoo thing, where you can roll pitchers, I always much prefer to focus on building an offence over pitching. I know I can find spot starters based on matchups and such. Morrow would be a nice add... I have him in my league... but in this case, I'd certainly keep Bruce and just activate whatever pitcher has a good matchup in any given week from what you have. The dropoff from Morrow likely wont be too much, but Bruce to Swisher is significant.

Thanks for the thoughts on mine.

Eh. Swisher is solid, and he's had one great month and struggled a bit rest but he's got too much upside to jettison away. Pass.
