Who To Drop? Liriano or Vogelsong? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 10:00 am

With Oswalt coming off the DL this weekend, I am in a position where I need to drop a starter in order to make room for him. Who would you consider dropping? Liriano or Vogelsong? I had said to myself that I'd monitor them both this week in order to make that determination, which ended with Vogel having a great start while Liriano had a crappy one.

Roster:

C - V Martinez
1st - Votto
2nd - Pedroia
3rd - Zimmerman
SS - S Castro
OF - Granderson
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Bautista
Util - Morse

Bench: Lawrie

SPs:
Verlander
Kershaw
Carpenter
Liriano
Vogelsong
Cueto
Oswalt (DL)
Strasburg (DL)

RPs:
Marmol
Putz
Storen
Bailey
Nathan

Liriano is maddeningly inconsistent. I'd get out from under that headache and drop him.

I've held onto Liri all year .. finally dropped him yesterday. If the guys not going to get things leveled off by now, he never will. Can't trust him in the playoffs.

Liriano makes the most sense, but you could still hold on to him, and dump Nathan with those options already @ RP

I would drop Liriano and be quite happy about losing the headache. Having Oswalt as a replacement for him would just be gravy. :-D
