Drop Addison Reed? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Sun May 13, 2012 5:44 pm

Worst closer week ever. Robertson gives up 4 er the other day and today Addison Reed allows 6 ER in .1 IP

Should I drop one of these guys? 10 ER in less than 2 IP and these kinds of RPs have killed my teams pitching line all year...

Seriously. Reed just cost my team a W in a worthless 1/3 of an inning. The revolving door and inconsistency of relief pitching this year is absurd. It's almost not even worth having RPs on a fantasy roster this year. :-t

Yeah it's the worst closer year of all time I'd have to imagine.
I think I may drop him... Don't even have a good replacement in mind. Just out of principle.

It sucks but it happens, unless there is a better option to grab, I would hold onto him for now, what you might wanna do is grab a nice 8th inning guy. I know you do not count holds, but guys like clippard can lower your whip and era, find one that pitches a lot of relief and then replace him, could be a good strategy, in my opinion.
