Plus this is a points league and generally points leagues are slanted towards pitchers. Your setup looks fairly similar to the ones I am in except more points for RBI and QS which could balance each other out. Last year in my league Gio out scored Pence by about 100 points which is a fair amount. I think you can find an OF to replace Pence in the draft.


Pence got 600+ point, Gio 340 ... you need good pitching but hitting far outscores

Scratch that then. Keep Pence. If hitting is that much better than pitching, I would rather fill up on hitters.

Pence has great value and is on a good team. Gio, while moving to the NL, should see a dip in ERA, but he still walks more than he should. Plus Pence is a great value. So keep Hunter.

No way you should drop Pence for Gio. I would much rather have Pence than Hudson or Beachy. Just because they are cheaper does not make them better., I f you drop Pence you may need to spend $10 to get him back.

If you dropped Zimm and kept Ax you'd save yourself 1 buck. DO NOT GET RID OF PENCE!
