Dan Haren questions - WHIR

Postby quincytwinsfan » Mon Apr 22, 2013 11:51 am

10 team, H2H 5X5 standard scoring (pitching: K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP)


There are some upgrades available on the WW, and I have been wanting to drop Dan Haren for a bit.

Question 1: Should I drop Haren before or after his start against St. Louis today?

Question 2: When I do drop him, who should I pick up from this list?

Jose Fernandez (WA Wed.)
Tony Cingrani
Wandy Rodriguez
Jarrod Parker
Tommy Hanson
Bronson Arroyo (WA Wed.)

I would just cycle that roster spot through all sorts of WW pitchers based on matchups. If you play it right you should be able to get close to #1 starter stats out of that slot just by playing matchups (AKA everyone who's playing against Houston).

I would drop him and pick up fernandez, but cingrani is also interesting because he has a far greater chance at getting wins than fernandez because he plays in cincinnati. If cingrani can find a way to stay in the rotation I would lean towards him but I don't know how long he will. It's a tough call but I would drop haren for fernandez.

bottom line is that fernandez or cingrani are both > haren

help?

What do we think about starting Haren today? I'm wary, personally.

Drop Haren. He is done. I'm in a 10 teamer as well and I finally cut the cord after his failure against Miami which is probably the most putrid lineup in the last decade. With a league that shallow there has to be better options available as streamers or even guys to hold onto.

I did it. I couldn't take the chance against the cards tonight. It just sounds too easy for them to kill him -- Beltran and Holliday own him.

But, who did I pick up for the start tonight???

CORREIA for the TWINS against the Marlins.
