SP for this week and ROS?

Postby Pav » Thu Aug 09, 2012 5:04 pm

I need one more SP for this week and ROS and possible playoffs.

Which 3 would be best options by preference?


H2H "Each"- Mixed, 12 teams, Daily, W-L-T
Cats: W, K, ER, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, ER, CG, SHO


Wei-Yin Chen (Bal - SP)
Alex Cobb (TB - SP)
Mike Minor (Atl - SP)
Scott Diamond (Min - SP)
Clayton Richard (SD - SP)
Wandy Rodriguez (Pit - SP)
Clay Buchholz (Bos - SP)
Franklin Morales (Bos - SP,RP)
David Phelps (NYY - SP,RP)

I'm thinking...


Good skills, recent Pure Quality Start (PQS) Dom performances.

The only guy I really like out of that group is Minor. The with the other two I guess I would go with Chen and Bucholz.

Minor and Chen are my 2 favorites out of that group. They both have been pretty lights out the last 3-4 weeks or so.

see mine if you can? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=451532

Personally I love Wandy so he'd be number one on my list. He should win more games with a better defense behind him and better offense helping him out. I think he can do very well in Pittsburg.

Chen has surprised me and I'm sure a lot of other people as well. I'd rank Mike Minor third.

The problem with Wandy this season isn't that he's not winning games. He's just not pitching as effectively anymore. He hasn't been able to go very deep into games and he won't help much in K/BB.

Chen definitely has been interesting, especially of late, but he's another pitcher that won't go very deep into games and faces the AL East.

My favorite of the group is Minor who has shown much better command lately. His walks are down and his strikeouts are up. After that, I'm not sure I believe in Buchholz yet but that could also be a good add.
