Floyd or Nolasco WHIR

Postby Emerald8h » Tue Mar 13, 2012 2:19 pm

Hey yahoo roto league with standard 5x5 cats. I am thinking of dropping Ogando and picking up either Floyd or Nolasco as my last SP...which one would you think is going to have the best season? Also thinking of dropping Dunn for Revere to help with some SP off the bench...good or bad idea?

I would go with Floyd, and probably keep Dunn just to see if he could get it back this year.

I agree with Floyd and with Dunn over Revere. Finding SB on the wire mid-season is fairly easy. Isn't that where Revere came from last season? You won't find a potential 30-40 HR guy there. If Dunn tanks then you can just dump him.

Dunn over Revere, plus you have Bourn.
I like Nolasco
Why not cut Fuentes?

As a potential closer, I wouldn't drop Fuentes, at least not until an announcement is made by the A's that Balfour is the closer. I like Floyd as he has the tendency to be more consistent over the course of the season when healthy. Nolasco has too many blowups for my taste. In either case though, you'd be able to find another waiver wire pitcher pretty easily if they both stink.

Keep Dunn, Revere will be sitting there all season. If not, you can find a Revere clone pretty easily.

Agree with the above. Floyd and Dunn. Keep an eye on Nolasco though just in case but he is an enigma.
