Pick up Ben Sheets? WHIR

Postby Ronniebegood » Tue Jul 17, 2012 12:27 am

First off thanks for the help, will WHIR. I'm looking to bolster my pitching staff for the stretch run. I just got Ellsbury back and can probably drop one of my outfielders for a starter (thinking Pagan). Who should I pick up? I could try and trade Pagan or Soriano too, maybe for someone like Zimmerman? Some available pitchers are:

Ben Sheets
Clayton Richard
Homer Bailey
Marco Estrada
Drew Pomeranz
Franklin Morales

I'm in a head-to-head points league.

My squad is:

C Joe Mauer
2B/SS Jimmy Rollins
2B/SS Derek Jeter
1B/3B Albert Pujols
1B/3B Adam LaRoche
OF Nick Swisher
OF Melky Cabrera
OF Alfonso Soriano
UTIL Jacoby Ellsbury
UTIL Josh Reddick
OF Angel Pagan
RP Craig Kimbrel
RP Jonathan Papelbon
RP J.J. Putz
SP Gavin Floyd
SP Wade Miley
RP Ryan Cook
SP Michael Fiers
SP Scott Diamond
SP Stephen Strasburg
SP Ryan Vogelsong
SP Wei-Yin Chen
SP Bud Norris
DL Andrew Cashner

Yes, Pagan.

It depends if you want to take the big risk or go safe. I would go big risk; here are the options.

Big RIsk: Ben Sheets
Safest bet: Homer Bailey
Safest bet if you can pick and choose which starts to use him: Clayton Richard (I love Petco for pitchers).

Sounds good, Gavin Floyd just went on the DL so I picked up Sheets to fill the spot, I still can grab another pitcher now. Thinking Richard maybe. I'm intrigued by Estrada's Strikeout potential too though. Decisions, decisions...
