4 pitchers, 2 spots left in my rotation. WHIR - thanks!

Postby GardnerRunsRampant » Fri Jul 29, 2011 3:37 pm

Out of the following four pitchers (some are already on my team, some are on the waiver wire), which two do you think will have the strongest finish to the season?

Matt Garza
Jonathan Sanchez
Wandy Rodriguez
Edwin Jackson

My league is based on the following points system:
Blown Saves: -3 points
Earned Runs: -1 point
Holds: 5 points
Innings: 0.5 points
Strikeouts (Pitcher): 1 point
Losses: -5 points
Pick Offs: 1 point
Saves: 6 points
Shutouts: 3 points
Wins: 10 points

Thanks Mr. Baseball. Garza has been on my team all year. He's been a very good pitcher this year, but unfortunately the Cubs defense and bullpen have been horrendous. His strikeout potential is a huge plus though.

I have to admit I am intrigued about Jackson. He has been on our waiver wire all year, as nobody wants his inconsistency. His upside though is no doubt high. I am excited to see how he does in STL. Have you seen any of his games lately? I have to admit, I could not watch the ugliness of the White Sox.

Garza is the clear-cut first choice on that list for me. He has pitched well so far this year, which none of the other three can say.

Wandy has been up and down and up and down, but it seems like it's been mostly down. I just cannot ever trust him fully.

I, like you, am very interested in Edwin Jackson and Dave Duncan. I'd tentatively add him, especially if his start tonight goes well (which I think it will). Westbrook looked pretty decent last year after being traded, ditto for Brad Penny. Duncan has worked miracles before. Can he do it again?
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Garza and Edwin Jackson. Keep an eye on Sanchez though, if he pitches well against the Phillies in his first game back I would drop Jackson for him.

Wandy, Garza, Jackson all have nice xFIP.
Wandy, with Jackson over Garza with a move to the NL.
