Drop Burton for Estrada?

Postby whet0003 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 1:07 am

Jared Burton has some potential saves coming. If Capps is out for a long time, he and Perkins will share saves.

On the other hand, Estrada has been lights out and may be much more valuable for wins, Ks and ERA/WHIP.

Do I drop Jared Burton and pick up Estrada?

I think it all depends on whether or not you need saves more or wins/Ks etc. If you need saves, then no, I'd hold on to Burton and poach whatever saves you can. If you need a starter, then I'd probably do it.

Estrada worries me in all categories other than Ks, because he's super HR-prone so far and his ratios are nothing special, and while I see some room for improvement there I'd really only go after him if you need a lot of help in the Ks department and aren't in need of the speculative saves and ratio help that Burton will likely bring for an indeterminate amount of time ...
