I picked up Billingsley a little while ago, in time ti get him for his last 3 starts (2 up and 1 down). The ups were not hugely impressive, but certainly nothing bad. Normally, I'd be content to keep him. He's not killing me and if he turns it around he could do a lot. Right now though, not so much.

There are a number of pitchers I think are worth considering dropping Billingsley for that are available in my league, but I figured I'd test the water and see if anyone else sees it differently. I'm 90% certain that Billingsley will get the drop, but its a question of who to pick up.

Westbrook
Sherzer
Nolasco
Detwiler
Samardzija
Kuroda
Macdonald


Thoughts?

I think I'm leaning towards Scherzer, Samardzija or Detwiler but I'm open to suggestion.

I like Scherzer of that list, but his #'s are still a bit scary. Billz is not very impressive and he will come crashing down soon...

help?

All signs point to Samardjia for me. His stuff's really good, and he starts every game like he's fighting to prove he deserves his spot in the rotation. I mean, its like he banged the sisters of all the guys in the bullpen and doesn't want to go back there. He's averaging about a strikeout per inning, and reasonable ERA. Just have to worry about W's if the Cubs suck as usual.

Nolasco's not bad either, but the K's aren't there. Scherzer scares me. He can be really good, or really bad. Or maybe its just his crazy eyes. Who knows.

Any ideas on building my trade? ---> viewtopic.php?t=446727

Thanks! I went with Samard. Ws don't count in my league. We use QS, so I'm not worried about the cubs backing him up or not.
