Bedard dropped...time for pitching adjustment? (WHIR)

Postby nyr199435 » Mon Aug 08, 2011 8:59 pm

So Erik Bedard was dropped, which is odd considering he's now with the Red Sox. I have the 8th waiver claim of 8 teams, so burning one on him doesn't hurt me at all. I also dropped Bumgarner to get a spot start in last week, and if he clears waivers he'll be a FA tomorrow morning. My team is below...are there any changes you would make? Like dropping Cueto/Hellickson/Luebke for Bumgarner or Bedard? This is more for the rest of the season rather than just for this week.

Thanks, post a link and I'll respond.

might sound crazy but I'd actually drop Ubaldo for Bedard. Bedard's era and whip has been better than Jimenez's this season and he is the one pitcher on the FA list that can keep up strikeout wise. I didn't like the move for Jimenez to the AL and considering his ERA was already above 4 in the NL West I don't see it getting any better. Plus you'll most likely get more wins with Bedard since hes pitching for the Sox.

Did you think youd be saying this a few months ago..wow..drop ubaldo for bedard

Bedard looked good last time, in a way though...he had no minor elague games but no walks and his stuff was getting into gear..im hoping he keeps progressing tonight
