Must Drop One Tonight to Activate Fister WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon May 07, 2012 2:31 am

I need to drop either JD Martinez or Grant Balfour tonight in order to activate DOug Fister for his Monday start @ Seattle. My team is winning and performing quite well despite sub-par saves guys. Now I recently picked up David Robertson and Sale has been named closer. Given that I theoretically have two good closers now, with Santos eventually returning, am I better off dumping Balfour and hanging onto Martinez? I have benched Balfour most of the week because I barely trust him anymore. Martinez is hitting terrible of late but I feel his upside is still there and he bats third.

Given your team makeup, I would drop Balfour. Closers are coming and going like crazy right now, so hanging on to a crap one is really not going to do much for you. Sale could end up going to the DL despite the bullpen move, but Santos will be back, and you can always nab another closer. Talented rookie hitters on the other hand.....

Probably Balfour as well. I don't like it. I like the idea of you dropping Smyly more but I realize with the way he is pitching right now, that probably isn't an option. I just see no way he continues this kind of success and would be surprised if he had an ERA under 4 when it is all said and done.
