Brandon Beachy hit the DL this morning, so now I need to decide on which of my DL players to drop, if any, so I can move Beachy to the DL and pick up another pitcher.
Should I drop Lance Berkman, Michael Pineda, or neither?
I picked up Pineda and stashed him on the DL when someone dropped him earlier this year. This is a keeper league and Pineda can be kept in the 17th round next year. So that's why I wanted to keep him. Lance Berkman could be kept in the 3rd round next year, which I likely wouldnt do. But I liked owning him just in case one of my other OF'ers or 1B get hurt later on in the year.
But I do think I need the extra pitching help, so I am going to have to drop someone most likely. I am leaning towards dropping Berkman because Pineda has such great keeper value.
What do y'all think though?

Only because it's a keeper league, I would drop Berkman. Pineda, I would assume, is going to be drafted in the single digit rounds next year. And pitching for the Evil Empire will certainly help him out quite a bit. I feel you on losing Beachy. I really wish my league had 2 DL slots.

I just would not have a pitcher for the next couple of weeks. Thats the only reason for me not to stand pat. I guess I could wait a couple days though and just see what happens. I am in 2nd place so I am not really fighting for a playoff spot.
The Keeper situation makes Pineda more valuable than Berkman. However, I also would consider sitting pat for two weeks. You are in second and won't miss playoffs if you lose two weeks and your team is much better as is then with whatever scrub you pick up off the ww. Help me: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=449095
