Hold one of these SP or stream?

Postby silverZ » Thu Apr 12, 2012 9:40 am

Right now I'm holding onto Alverez after his good start against the Redsox. I'm conflicted on how to use the roster spot. Opinions?


7x7 roto with extra cats being losses and HR against.

Alverez - filthy sinker/change combo, mixing in a slider more this year. Redsox hitters compared him to Felix after his first start.
Hochevar - like him a lot, seems like he's turned the corner with control and is in for an above average season
Nicasio - never seen him pitch but i've heard good things
Harrison - solid, underrated...don't like him pitching in texas though
Chacin - looked horrible all spring and his first start was ugly. I was very high on him last season though. lots of upside.
Floyd - his 1.15 WHIP last year intrigues me...
Hughes - I think he won't stick in the rotation...anyone high on him?
Porcello - ewww no thanks. why did I even list him?
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I like Harrison from that list. You might not like him pitching in Texas but you have to like the AL West offenses he will go up against.

I would hold Alvarez for now. I think Hocheaver could be the real deal. time will tell.

I picked up Alvarez last week, and am sticking with him for now. He hasn't given me any reason to move on yet.
