Add which SP (ROS)?

Postby nyr199435 » Tue Apr 17, 2012 9:42 am

One year
12 teams
H2H points

Pitchers:
IP: 1
W: 7
L: -7
CG: 4.5
SHO: 9
SV: 7
ER: -1
BB: -1
IBB: -1
K: 0.5
HLD: 4
NH: 18
PG: 27
QS: 3.5
BSV: -7

Which of these SP do you like for the rest of the season?
-Kyle Drabek (has looked terrific so far, potential has always been there, only 24 years old)
-Rick Porcello (everyone has him picked as a HUGE sleeper this year, off to decent start)
-Bud Norris (good K's, maybe QS's, but not a lot of wins)
-Ryan Vogelsong (fluke last year? healthy?)
-Erik Bedard (potential)
-Mike Minor (another sleeper for this year...will he keep rotation spot?)

To be honest, I'm really torn between Drabek, Porcello, and Minor. It seems like the obvious choice would be Minor, but I keep reading about the chance for Porcello's big season. Who would you add?

I'd either add Minor or Norris. You can't chase wins in fantasy and Norris' peripherals will be good. I really like him but wouldn't mind having Minor too.

please help

Alright, I parted with Broxton for Minor. I'm at my 3 player adds for the week, so I'm thinking that if Pomeranz blows his next start again, and Porcello is still out there come next Monday, I'll just drop Pomeranz and grab him. Or should I grab Vogelsong/Norris/Drabek? I guess at this point it will depend on who's out there come Monday.

Bud Norris for ratios??? Norris has a 1.40 Whip. Not that he can't improve, but don't take his first two starts and call him a low-3s ERA, sub-1.15 Whip guy.

I'd take Bedard for now over Porcello. He's got a lot of injury history, but he also has a history of pitching very well when he's healthy.

Thanks. Hopefully he's out there when Monday rolls around. The 3 player add max is driving me insane!
