Liriano for Oswalt? (WHIR)

Postby letmehearucaw » Fri Jul 06, 2012 7:21 pm

I'm disappointed by Oswalt so far but at least he's winning right?

Should I pick up Liriano instead?

I'm low in the standings for Wins, ERA, and WHIP.

Neither guys is a safe option. I would probably rather risk it with Oswalt assuming that the matchup is good (OAK, SEA, MIN) but if really I would rather stream off the WW then deal with either one all year.

In my league, transactions cost $2 each. So Streaming gets to be too expensive.

But thanks for the advice!

I would stream both pitchers... Neither are a sure thing.

If you don't want to stream, I'd stick with Oswalt. Much better offense behind him and I like his chances of being consistently good whereas I don't trust Liriano even remotely.

I trust Oswalt far more than I trust Liriano although both are fringe options at this point.

With streaming out, I'd go with Oswalt. Pitching for a better team does make a difference.
