Tevor Bauer = This is your guy out of the three by far. Young guy will struggle, and be very inconsistent by playoff time though. -Once batters have a scouting report on him. H e is not the next Strasburg so dont think about dropping Latos for him.
Drop J Parker if you ned to do this. Your pitching staff looks pretty formidable. Sheilds, Kersahaw, Latos, and Kennedy will be hitting all cyl's by the end of this month. June is no time to panic.
Totally agree. I just used my waiver to pick up Latos a few days ago. He will get things straightened out as the season unfolds, and I see no reason to get rid of him now. I don't know anything about Bauer, but I know that Burnett and Buchholz are probably not long-term solutions. I would rather use that spot to stream pitchers than to keep either of them. You will get more production from streaming (I'm assuming it's a daily and not a weekly league here) than keeping any of those dudes permanently. Bauer could be a guy that, once you scoop up, you sell high if he comes out of the gates hot. If he struggles early, you haven't lost anything so you could still shop him or cut him for a better arm who's on the WW by that point in the season. Your pitching staff looks great, and I wouldn't cut anyone besides Parker to make any moves at this point. Everything looks pretty solid and you should just ride things out for another month or so to see what happens. Re-evaluate in about a month or so and see if you still feel the same way about your staff.
