Starting Pitcher Advice

Postby MementoMori5 » Wed Jun 13, 2012 12:49 am

I'm thinking about dropping one of my starting pitchers, and need help deciding on who to pick up. These are the pitchers I'm looking at:

Ryan Vogelsong
Shaun Marcum
Felix Doubront
Jason Vargas
Scott Diamond

Any advice would be great, thanks.

Vogelsong and Marcum for sure. Not to high on the other 3, what does your staff currently look like. Make it easier to see who you are looking at dropping

I'm thinking about dropping Barry Zito, and Possibly Bud Norris. Norris got pulled out of tonight's game because of injury, so if he goes on the DL for a while I'm gonna drop him.

I would go with Marcum, but it is close. Vogelsong pitches in a better park for pitchers. They both give you a pretty good WHIP.

I'm leaning towards Vogelsong, but Felix Doubront's record is pretty nice. Thoughts?
