Which SP to drop for Willingham or Martinez?

Postby cano your role » Wed Apr 11, 2012 11:56 am

Looking to add another bat to support my team, and Willingham and JD Martinez are available in the FA pool. My team could use some help in the HR/RBI department, so while Willingham will give a few more HRs I figure Martinez should drive in some runs hitting 3rd even if he's on the Astros (and hit for a better average).

Currently debating dropping Chacin or Minor. I like Minor's strikeout potential but don't know how well he'll produce quality starts and keep his ERA down as he gets established this year. And Chacin's inconsistency is almost enough to scare me off.

Thought I'd get some perspective - appreciate you taking the time.


10 team H2H league:

C - Y. Molina
1B - B. Butler
2B - H. Kendrick
SS - J. Reyes
3B - H. Ramirez
OF - Braun, Choo, D. Young
Util - I. Davis, E. Bonifacio
BN - A. de Aza, A. Hill

SP - Grienke, Gallardo, Haren, D. Hudson, Latos, Chacin, Buchholz, Minor, C. Lewis, Worley
RP - Axford, Betancourt, Marshall

To me Minor has more upside than Chacin. Chacin's inconsistency and home ballpark are a volatile mixture. I honestly think he is a pretty good pitcher in real life just not so much for fantasy purposes. He walks too many people and strikes out too few, his k/9 steadily regressed over the last 3 seasons and his bb/9 has remained high. Mike Minor shows better control so thats why my vote is to keep him of the two. Would probably add willingham....

And to further complicate things LaRoche is also available, for consideration.

i would drop a lot of players on your team for JD but chacin is the best bet.
