Jamie Garcia or Brandon McCarthy??!!??

Postby TheGhost » Thu Apr 19, 2012 2:28 am

10 teams, H2H, keeper... 6x6 categories but we use quality starts instead of wins. So quality of team or run support doesn't matter.

Jamie Garcia just got dropped and I'm considering dropping Brandon McCarthy for him? Should I do this?

Thanks!! ;-D

Yeah I would. Can you really not drop anyone else though? What is your roster?

I would say Jamie by a mile but i am the kind of person who judges heavily on K/BB in which McCarthy is horrible. But Honestly I believe Jamie is a much better pitcher.If you look at this season so far neither has done particularly well but McCarthy has faced opponents that others have feasted on and put out mediocre performances so in short drop that scrub and pick up Jamie who IMO has way more upside. Lets just put it this way I pride my self on being able to pick good streams. I really would not even pick up McCarthy for good Match ups, just really nothing going for him and his chances for gems are pretty much non existent.

I would do it as well and drop McCarthy. Garcia plays for a better team will get more wins and K's.

Do you keep your whole roster from year to year? If not I think I'd drop Bauer. When's his ETA in the Majors? 2013 at the earliest? If you aren't keeping everyone I think he'll be there to get drafted next year.
