ww pitching help after big trade.

Postby garretterik » Tue Jul 24, 2012 2:09 pm

OK, I just traded one of my top pitchers for one of the best players in the game. My CC. for his Kemp! ;-D
This obviously boosts my offense, but leaves me in need of pitching help.

I am thinking of droping Gose and KRod and picking up a SP and RP. (maybe SRomo (will he get to close?)/Cischek/Francisco and Billingsly/Estrada/Fiers)
Your thoughts?

My team:
C Yadier Molina (StL - C)
1B Paul Goldsmith (Ari-1B)
2B Neil Walker (Pit-2B)

I like the idea of picking up Jarrod Parker, he has been solid for the red hot A's. And Michael Fiers his numbers have been very impressive. I don't think Romo will get to close unless Casilla Continues to struggle.

I agree that Parker needs to be rostered right now. I don't really see a RP that is an 'upgrade' over K-Rod. It's just hard to get excited about any of those guys. If you can go with another starter and can afford to dump a closer (K-Rod) I would look toward Estrada. He has been very good lately. I would also DL Morrow too if you have room.

I've got Romo starting for me right now (we don't have bench spots in my league), I'm praying he gets the closer gig, but the rumors are that they might trade for a closer in SF, so Romo would keep the set-up. I like the upside, plus he will help the ratios a nice amount. Also agree on Parker, he's definitely worth the pickup

Here's how I'd rank the Starters... Non of the hitters really jumped out at me and all the Closers you listed are questionable (I'd include Vinne Pestano) to that list as well.

Parker
Fiers
BMorrow (Mid August)
Cashner (Mid August)
NFelizDL (Early August)
Estrada (Good peripherals, no wins)

I'd definitely go after Parker. I'm from Toronto and, having watched Gose for a few games, he will be good next year but will be sent down once Bautista comes back. So you're fine to drop him. Morrow will be back at the end of August and will get you 5 or 6 starts, so hopefully 5 or 6 wins :) Fowler and Stubbs are decent OF options. And Boesch can turn it on at any time.

Go for Parker and Revere .

Drop Gose and K Rod. I just dropped K Rod and almost want to add him back just so I can drop his sorry butt again. Brewers have made it very clear that Axford will be closing again soon. They were just shopping K Rod before the deadline and it backfired.

Pick up Parker. Now.

After that, I would seriously consider Chipper Jones. He won't play everyday, but you've got plenty of players to slide in and out. The man can just flat out hit and he really wants to keep that career avg over .300.
