Cueto or Gallardo

Postby jsh0702 » Wed Jun 13, 2012 1:37 pm

Who do you like better or the rest of this year? H2H league standard cats.
Cueto has a high xfip and appears to be a good sell high, but is Gallardo really an upgrade? Need some help deciding.

I honestly value them about the same. Cueto should get you a lower ERA, but Gallardo will get you more K's.

I'm a fan of both pitchers the ROS.

Haha yeah I know, sorry about that. I just honestly value them the same the ROS. I will try to expand a little bit though:

Before the season started I would definitely have said Gallardo. But he has been struggling as of late.
So the safest option to go with right now is obviously Cueto. He will get you a low ERA and bring you W's, he just doesn't strike out a lot of batters.


But if you want to take a slight risk that could give you a big return, go with Gallardo. He will give you a lot more K's then Cueto and most likely he will get back to his old self and have a good ERA the ROS too. He usually pitches better in the second half of the season anyways.

I'd rather have Gallardo but it's close. I'm willing to take more risks with pitchers though.
