Dump Ogando? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Wed Aug 31, 2011 10:55 pm

Should I dump Ogando and look for a starter to replace him? Any suggestions on who might be lurking on waivers?

Well, IMO your keepers are this:
1B M. Cabrera
2B D. Pedroia
OF J. Ellsbury
SP R. Halladay
SP F. Hernandez
ONE OF: 3B D. Wright/UT P. Fielder/DL H. Ramirez (Prince is the best player easily, Wright and Hanley play shallow positions).

I would do this:
-If Hanson is coming back soon, activate him (obviously).
-If Montero starts playing soon, keep him if he produces. If he starts out going 2-24 or something, drop him before Ogando. I'm not sure how much playing time Montero will see while Ogando will still be making starts in front of a very good offense.

Also, what SP are on the WW? That is the important question.

I like Lilly here. Though his next start is Monday, he is a historic 2nd half SP and has done well lately. McDonald/Norris/Carmona aren't bad options either, but I feel Lilly is the least shaky...McDonald puts guys on base, Norris has been hit-or-miss lately, Carmona K/BB isn't great. If you need a start for the bye this week, Carmona plays OAK tomorrow, Norris plays MIL on Saturday.

Yeah I don't so much need him for this week as I need a playoff time replacement for Ogando, who has left the circle of trust.
