Time to give up on Romero?

Postby exposrule » Tue Jun 19, 2012 12:54 am

Ricky Romero hasn't been all that good this year, which I sort of expected since last year seemed like a fluke. Considering his current stats and the division he pitches in, I really don't think things are going to turn around. I was thinking of trying to grab Anthony Rizzo and really don't have anyone else on my team to drop. Should I give up on Romero, or do you guys think he'll turn it around?

Unless you play in a shallow 10 team league I wouldn't give up on him yet. Sure, he hasn't look good, but there is time for him to turn it around. He's still a decent matchup play. Now is a good time to stash Rizzo, post your roster and maybe we'll find someone else to drop.

Sorry, I should have posted my roster as well. I am in a pretty shallow 10 team roto league actually, so that's why I'm considering the drop. My roster is as follows:

C Mike Napoli
1B Adrian Gonzalez
2B Aaron Hill
3B David Freese
SS Dee Gordon
IF Adam Dunn
OF Josh Hamilton
OF Michael Bourn
OF Josh Willingham
Util Tony Campana
BN Kevin Youkilis
BN Jacoby Ellsbury(DL)
BN Brandon Belt
DL Chase Utley(DL)

SP Stephen Strasburg
SP Cole Hamels
RP Jason Motte
RP Rafael Betancourt
P Addison Reed
P Doug Fister
P Yu Darvish
BN Vance Worley
BN Ricky Romero
BN Jered Weaver (DL)
BN Roy Halladay(DL)

I recently picked up both Campana and Belt, but I can't go back and drop Campana because I'm trying to catch up in steals. Belt might be breaking out now, so I don't really feel I should drop him either. Maybe it's just not a good idea to be taking chances on Belt and Rizzo at the same time. The reason I was considering dropping Romero is Weaver comes off the DL soon and there won't be room in my rotation anyhow. I've tried shopping Romero all season with the other teams, but no luck there. I just don't really see a situation in the future where I feel comfortable playing him in my lineup over my other pitchers.

Yea, I don't see anyone else you can drop if you need Campana's speed. I'd drop Romero now. You can always find decent pitching in 10 team leagues. You might even be able to pick him back up in a few weeks.
