SP Upgrade. Niese? Nova? Harrison?

Postby camhoff » Fri Apr 27, 2012 1:42 pm

14 team H2H keeper league. My SPs are Sabathia, Greinke, Beckett, Peavy, Masterson and E. Santana

Would you drop Santana or Masterson for any of the following going forward: Niese, Nova, Harrison

I'm thinking Niese might be breaking out.

Nab Niese for Masterson (dude's velocity is significantly down). I myself would also probably roster Harrison over Santana.

I like Harrison and Niese over E. Santana. Never been an E. Santana fan. Nova seems to live a charmed life wrt run support. He is fairly decent as well though I am not convinced his WHIP will be anything special.

I'm not a fan of Santana and his results so far this season has proved my regard of him. Still early in the season, but I think that you're right in the fact that Niese is primed to break out. If you were to drop someone, I would recommend Santana. And of those who you want to pick up, I would pick Niese.

Help me with mine? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=445333

Definitely drop Masterson for Niese...E. Santana is iffy but I am not sold on Harrison so that is more of a toss up for me.

Half are saying drop Ervin half are saying drop Masterson for Niese. Harrison is going to get wins by default on that Texas squad...

I like Harrison this year... He won't strike out that many guys but the dude pitches for Texas and his Groundball ratio is outstanding. Get you some wins with a solid ERA/WHIP to go along with it. Niese is alright but he pitches for the Mets... Not as favorable in my opinion.

Niese looks like your fourth starter to me, ahead of Peavy. Get him.
