Need pitching help from the wire

Postby tommo » Sun May 06, 2012 8:20 pm

12 Team H2H Weekly Points League. We start 5 starters and a closer. I was pretty unlucky this week with Sale moving back to the bullpen and Luebke joining Hudson on the DL. I am most likely going to drop Sale and Betancourt since closers don't have much value in the league. I am hoping to get some advice on waiver adds.

Some of the top pitchers on the wire right now are:
Jason Vargas
James McDonald
Jake Arrieta
Gavin Floyd
Ryan Vogelsong
Bud Norris
Jake Westbrook
Wade Miley
Wei-Yin Chen
Erik Bedard
Anthony Bass
J.A. Happ

My Team:

SP Beachy, Brandon
SP Garza, Matt
SP Sale, Chris
SP Wainwright, Adam
RP Bard, Daniel
RP Robertson, David
SP Hudson, Daniel
SP Hudson, Tim
RP Betancourt, Rafael
RP Luebke, Cory

Scoring System:

Pitching Categories
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -0.5 points
BS - Blown Saves -4 points
CG - Complete Games 3 points
R - Earned Runs -1 point
HB - Hit Batsmen -0.5 points
INN - Innings 1.5 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
L - Losses -6 points
NH - No-Hitters 15 points
PG - Perfect Games 20 points
QS - Quality Starts 1 points
S - Saves 4 points
W - Wins 6 points

As the others mentioned it's gotta be Jake Arrieta and/or Erik Bedard. Arrieta is the ace of that staff (that is until Dylan Bundy gets promoted or Brian Matusz figures it out), and Bedard has found a place where there isn't any pressure to perform or win consistently. I'm leaning toward Bedard based solely on the K's, but you can't go wrong with either. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that Bedard will more than likely spend a good amount of time on the DL at some point this year, so be warned. Until then, with his current performances, he's a fine pickup. Just don't count on lots of wins or great health and you won't be disappointed. Once he hits the DL this summer, move on and do so quickly.

I like Bedard over Arrieta. And Norris is a close third to me with the monster K potential.
