James McDonald or A.J. Griffin (Dynasty League)

Postby SoCal87 » Mon Sep 03, 2012 4:20 am

I'm in a 16 team, 8X8 dynasty league. Stats for pitching are Wins(W), Losses (L), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Holds (HLD), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP), and Quality Starts (QS). I'm already looking at 2013, this season did not turn out like I was hoping for so I started stashing players and I don't know if I should stick it out with James McDonald or pick up someone like A.J. Griffin.

Who do you guys think will be the more valuable SP, James McDonald or A.J. Griffin?

I know that he's struggled lately, but I think that at the end of the season we're going to look back on McDonald's 2012 campaign and call it a major success. He has been much improved over last season and has a very live arm. He'd be my pick.

I agree, I think McDonald has really put it together in a major way, not only is his stuff better but he's using it in a smarter way, especially when he's locating his fastball instead of leaving it over the plate. He has struggled a bit of late but it can be easy to predict his bad starts at times -2.60 ERA at home vs. 5.40 away - I think he only gets better.
