Jaime Garcia or Mike Fiers?

Postby TitsMcGahee » Wed Apr 03, 2013 11:03 am

Thinking about picking one of these guys up to bolster my pitching staff. Who's the better option?

Current rotation:
Hamels
Weaver
Scherzer
M. Moore
A. Cobb
T. Milone
Garza (DL)

Also is Trevor Rosenthal (STL) worth picking up for ratios and maybe close if Boggs fails/Motte doesn't come around?

I like Fiers a lot. Much better K rate than Garcia and I think he'll have a nice ERA & WHIP. If I remember right he had 2 lousy starts last year that increased his ERA. I think he was much better than what his ERA showed. I'm surprised he wasn't drafted in your league.

As for Rosenthal I like him a lot too. I expect him to finish the year as the Cardinals closer, assuming Motte doesn't return. At this point though I probably wouldn't add him, I guess it depends on what other RP's you have.

I'm taking Garcia. I like Fiers, but the k rates are close enough that I'd rather have the gb pitcher, particularly considering their home parks.

I'd go Garcia also, he has had some success prior to his injury. Could be a good comeback candidate.
