How often does one NOT keep the reigning NL Cy Young? Granted he's getting up there in years, last year was by far the best year of his career, and he's now in the AL East. But then I look at what he did against Tampa and Baltimore in Interleague last June in back to back starts (2 CGs, no ERs, 25 k's combined)...
Taking all of that into account, I need to decide between keeping Dickey or Kris Medlen. Very tough call. I'm already keeping Verlander and Strasburg. I am in "win now" mode, but also always have an eye on the future...Please help!
You are in win now mode so I say Dickey is the keep.
61* 70**73**762*** MVP****AL07,AL05,NL04,ALNL03,ALNL02,NL01,ALNL00,AL99,ALNL98,ALNL96 RIP Cammi Cmon Bud NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug testing program down Fehr's fat throat and save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!
It really is a bit of a toss up. Dickey's numbers are projected to be solid, Medlen's are projected to be a bit better on ERA and WHIP. That being said, Dickey is projected at more than a few wins above Medlen.
Verlander and Strasburg should really set you well in ERA/WHIP/Ks, and I think Dickey gives you a chance at a knockout 1-2-3 staff. Medlen could be great, but Dickey's season last year (on the METS) I think give him an deserved edge.
