Drop Damn McDonald? WHIR

Postby jruffus1 » Fri Aug 10, 2012 9:09 pm

I am so disappointed in James McDonald. He had such a good game going, but then become totally unravelled in the 5th (6 run 5th). Is it time to dump him once and for all? He has been killing my ERA.

With only 1 QS in his last 6 appearances, no one would blame you if you did. ;-D

Hes been a different pitcher in the 2nd half. I would dump him in 10-12 team leagues for any solid options on the wire.

Need more info (# of teams, who else you have, roto or h2h, replacement options, etc). Hard to say without that. He could still prove to be a useful matchups pitcher down the stretch in some leagues.

I think he's done and he won't regain his composure from pre-AS break. I would say for the rest of the season, expect a 4.40 ERA so if you're ok with that, keep him. Otherwise, dump him and I bet you can find a better FA starter over the rest of the season.

I picked him up early and have been high on him all year. That being said, I dropped him this past week also. If you can't handle the Padres at home, you can't handle no one.

It's time to move on.... :-/
