In the Finals...last day to add...HELP...WHIR

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Wed Sep 14, 2011 10:00 am

So I am winning 5-3 thus far...Today is the last day to add.

ME: 12R 1HR 10RBI 1SB .273OBP 0W 2SV 14K 3.14ERA 1.26WHIP
HIM: 11R 6HR 19RBI 0SB .354 OBP 0W 2SV 12K 8.31ERA 2.00WHIP

I am not sure what to do...Tulo is not himself with his injury, so I grabbed Dee Gordon (furcal is out there too)...
I was thinking maybe I should dump Joe Nathan for another Starter to gain hopefully on Wins and K's since my ERA and WHIP are nice compared to his. Or should I look to possibly dump Prado. All I need to do is tie 5-5 in order to win the league. Should I dump Nathan for an SP and focus on pitching stats or try to find a way to catch up in hitting? Below is both our teams. Thanks for any feedback and leave a link!

Seems you need to maintain your lead in k's while also maintaining the lead in runs and SB. Dee is a good start because he has games all week and Tull reagravated his hip issue last night. I'd go for the best K pitcher that won't kill your whip. Seems Harrison at Seattle would be one to consider. Also Lincoln at LAD.

seems like u need ro keep runs and sbs. along with keeping era whip and either Ws or svs. i wouldnt drop nathan so you can edge saves out, maybe drop some of ur sp that isnt going to double dip after they pitch, and go after some rp. maybe morte is out there, or the COL closer, of frank fransisco, idk what your options are on the wire in your league, and if you dropped prado is there a 2nd basemen on their looking better? i would slide dee into sb if you have to

The Rangers have dominated Cleveland for a few years now and Derek Holland has been really good his last 3 starts. But his last start against the Indians lasted just 1.2 and he gave up 4ER. Holland is a gamble. He could toss a 10K shut out or get rocked early, but I like his chances to get a W if he can get through 5.

Okay, so now I am doubting my decision to pick up Chacin for tomorrow against SF. So, now it begs to question...do I...

Drop Chacin for Dempster v. HOU?
add Harrison vs. SEA and drop Nathan?

Also, do I add Willingham and dump Chipper, since Josh has been hot and plays Thursday?

Thanks!!

If this isn't a keeper league you can dump any pitcher that was throwing today since they won't get another start this week. Not sure how many players you can add though. I would totally drop Nathan for Harrison. I'm an M's fan and they just are pretty bad offensively. Good luck! ;-D

Probably Myers vs. the Cubs. He's been pitching well lately but who knows when that little streak will end. But that's who I'd throw out there.
