Which SP to drop? Haren, Ogando, Kuroda?

Postby AHF » Thu Apr 04, 2013 4:57 pm

I want to bring myself down to 5 SP's and have a spot that I can use for streaming, saves speculation, etc.

Which of these pitchers do you drop first?

Felix Hernandez (not considering)
Matt Latos (not considering)
Matt Harvey (not considering)

Dan Haren
Alexi Ogando
Hiroki Kuroda

I wouldn't drop any of them, Ogando is ranked lowest but man gotta love what he did this week.

Before the season started I would have ranked Ogando higher than Haren or Kuroda. His performance yesterday solidifies that for me. No way would I consider dropping him. I agree with plamb though, I wouldn't drop any of them yet. Give them a few starts to see how they do before you do anything.

Dropping Ogando is insane, especially after his first start.

If i'm dropping anyone, I'm dropping Kuroda. But why drop someone if you don't HAVE to? Kuroda is a streamer anyway...I wouldn't consider him above the "Wandy Line", as Matthew Berry puts it.

Ogando had one great start against a horrible offense. He's got a great arm but I don't think he is someone I would depend on all year. I wouldn't fall in love with him just yet.

I'm not in love with him, but compared to Kuroda I think it is an easy decision. Ogando's potential is higher than Kuroda's, and now with Kuroda's injury, it pretty much solidifies it for me. Kuroda is a streamer. Ogando could still be a streamer, but has the potential for me. I'll take the upside any day. Especially when it comes to making drop/add decisions at the backend of my rotation. I'm assuming this guy already has some well-established arms at the front-end, so why not go for potential at the back-end?
