Pick up OSWALT? WHIR

Postby MaxMan715 » Sat Mar 24, 2012 1:46 pm

With news of Carpenters injury and the understanding that Oswalts been talking to the Angels, I am very tempted to take a gamble and add Oswalt. I know that he said that he doesn't want to pitch until June, but a part of me is telling me that it's all a money tactic. I would most likely drop Billinsgley for him.

My Roster:

C - M Montero
1st - Goldschmidt
2nd - Kinsler
3rd -Lawrie
SS - Castro
OF - Kemp
OF - Ethier
OF - Bruce
Util - Ortiz

Bench: Morales, D Young

SPs:
Lester
Wainwright
Hanson
Kuroda
Masterson
Billinglsey
E Jackson

RPs:
Bell
Capps
Nathan
Broxton
Bastardo (HLDS)

I do not thinlk much of Billingsley in a mixed league so there is not much to lose imo. That said, Oswalt is basically a waste of a bench spot if he isn't going to play until June and then who knows how effective he is liekly to be as he was not all that great a SP to begin with these days. I would pass but keep on him for the present.

I would def take Dempster over Oswalt and probably Danks too.

I would rather have Billingsley. He is better than the numbers showed last year. I also like Danks, Harrison and Lewis more than Oswalt right now.

Unless you have deep benches, stay away from Oswalt until June or unless there is a more concrete report/story.
