AL ONLY 5X5 HELP NEEDED, WHO TO DUMP - WHIR

Postby homers » Mon Jul 25, 2011 8:39 am

AL only 5X5 standard cat. 14 hitters 9 pitchers
Currently I have 4 starters and 5 relievers. I need to release a reliever to call up Duffy (double start week). Problem is that they are all pitching pretty good right now, and saves are tight. I am debating between (in order of most strongly leaning towards):
Thornton - even though Santos is shaky, Thornton's giving up more hits and less k's than ever.
Pestano - 2.68 era 1.00 whip 53k's 13bb's in 37 ip
Holland - 1.20/0.90/39/8/30 ip
Rauch - probably the least effective but is the "closer" at the moment in TOR...

I also have Bedard, Nova and Matusz currently reserved that I will have to debate activating at some point. My active starters are pretty solid with Price, Romero, Neimann, McCarthy

I need to decide by noon.

In a standard league, Thronton or Pestano are droppable. Given the large amount of Ks Pestano gives you, I agree with your assesment above and drop Thornton.
