Dropping Ubaldo... Add Romero? WHIR

Postby sigriffey » Mon Aug 06, 2012 12:55 am

I received Ubaldo as part of a big trade. I have no interest in holding him. Should I take a flier in Ricky Romero? Still 65% owned, available in my FA pool, and has put together two good starts (granted, they were @SEA and @OAK).

Alternately, I could drop Ubaldo and add Mike Olt. But maybe I need the arm more? Romero' next start is @TB.

Wow, your team is absurdly good!
It doesn't look like you need anything, but since you have Miggy at 3B i don't see a need for Olt. I am a big believer in streaming SP. You could add an arm here-and-there until Hanson comes back...just food for thought. I'm not too excited about Romero.

Olt likely isn't going to get enough at bats right away to make a real impact. I would look to improve upon Ubaldo/Romero if at all possible. I have no preference between the two. It's like being asked, "would you rather get kicked in the left or right nut?"
