Need pitching help and have to drop a DL pitcher. WHIR 100%

Postby footballisbetter.com » Thu Jun 07, 2012 7:29 pm

5x5 h2h league. My pitching has been killing me. Now I have a lot of injuries too. I need to pickup a pitcher, and will need to drop someone?

My pitchers: (start 9 per week)- Dempster, Garza, D Hudson, Lester, Samardzia, Frieri, Jim Johnson, F Francisco
DL- Lilly, Holland, J Garcia
Bench- Oswald

Free agents: Kuroda, Floyd, W Chen, Miley, Hughes, Liriano, Lowe, J Williams, Zito, Danks, Colon, Westbrook, Bass, Gee, Matusz, Hutchison, G Richard

Which one of my bench/DL pitchers should I drop?

And who do I pick up?

I would drop Oswalt and pick up Lowe. I like what Lowe is doing this year.

please help and read my last two posts before answering. Thanks!

I'd drop Garza, you just don't need 3 Cubs pitchers. Strangles your win capability. NO Derek Holland either. Drop him. You don't need an injured starter pitching in one of the best hitter's parks in baseball. I think Jaime Garcia should have a much lower ERA and he will definitely get his runs support. Then it's between Wade Miley and jerome Williams. You'll have to feel it out. Miley is totally unproven but is the bigger risk/reward pitcher. I think Jerome will have an ERA around 3.80-4.00 when it's all said and done.

Thanks. But I don't think there is any way I can drop Garza. I know having 3 Cubs pitchers sucks, but Garza is way better then anyone on the WW. And I can still hold out hope that he gets dealt.

I like Liriano and Gee better than Oswalt. He's been overrated and injury-prone for years. Missing half a year isn't going to help. If you get anything out of him besides a few wins, I'd be shocked. And he might destroy your ratios pitching in Arlington.

Help with mine?

My gut says Garcia. It was down to him and Oswalt and I honestly think that even if Oswalt is not a stud, he should be safe for an ERA in the 3.6-3.7 range with a ton of wins.

Wow, responses are all over the place.

2 votes to drop Oswald, 1 to drop Holland, 1 to drop Garcia, and 1 to drop Garza 8-o

2 votes to add Miley, 1 each for Lowe, Kuroda, Gee, Liriano and J Williams

Any other opinions? I forgot I have another DL slot, so I can add 2 pitchers. I guess with this bunch though it's just a crapshoot.

1 - Do not pick up Derek Lowe.

2 - Do not drop Matt Garza.

If you want to pick up a pitcher the only one worth picking up that will get wins without slaughtering your ERA & WHIP would be Hiroki Kuroda.

I would actually stand pat but if your mind is set on making a move then I would obviously drop one of the guys from your DL or bench.

Thanks for the help with mine!


I completely agree. MAYBE drop Oswalt for Hiroki. But I would at least wait to see how Oswalt pitches with Texas before you make a decision.
