Maybe neither? It depends on your type league and your current roster. Who would you drop for one of them?

IIRC, Marcum is about to come off the DL and Davis was heating up as of about a week or so ago... so I don't think I'd grab either right now.

Why dont you have Ike Davis listed on your roster? Just curious.


I would drop Ike Davis for either JJ or Mat Latos honestly. Prob would go with Latos since JJ could possibly be moving to the AL East, and that would hurt his value imo.

I guess I forgot to add him since I just picked him up...I need to change that. I used the roster from another post, takes so long to post them each time and guess forgot to add him in...

thanks though. I just wanted to know which one to grab since they are both on WW and I have the #2 WW pick.

Yeah I understand I would drop Ike for Latos. Especially if you think you need the extra pitching depth. Latos should only improve in the second half of the season.

Agreed. Ike for Latos makes sense.

I think Latos is the hotter hand but I slightly prefer JJ overall.

I personally would drop Marcum for either pitcher. Latos over JJ
