Postby joeyg2323 » Thu May 17, 2012 3:29 pm

i love minor and think he is going to be good but is it time to let him go? his had 4 straight horrible starts but has a k/9 rate at almost 9! what would you do?

I dropped him. When a guy has a terrible BABIP against every time he pitches at the major league level it makes you wonder whether he will ever regress to the mean. Unless your league is really deep I'd drop him or at the very least bench him until he strings together some decent starts.

It depends on who's available on the wire, but I'd sit on him and wait it out.

Like he said, it really depends on who you have on the wire and how big your league is.




Thanks for the help with mine.

I would prob wait at least another start then. None of those guys have as much talent as Minor.

Wait it out. None of the guys you mentioned are worth picking up in his place. He is too good not to turn it around. I am keeping him in my league.

please help

With that in mind, I'd definitely stick with Minor. Thanks for the help with mine.

In a similar situation in a few leagues. Doesn't sound like there are any options with his upside. I'd stay put and hope he figures it out. He's been frustrating to own....
