Pick up Liriano? WHIR

Postby DaveClay12 » Tue Apr 23, 2013 9:33 pm

Yes, I have a lot of pitching, but I'm in 2nd-to-last place as virtually my entire offense has slumped. Given my league's keeper format (see below), should I pick up Francisco Liriano, to take a shot for the future? I'd probably drop Bradley, but I'm pretty sure that if I do, and he clears waivers, someone will pick him up as a free agent for the future.

Thoughts, or suggestions? Roster/rules below

Leave a link, I'll definitely get back to you!

Thanks,

Dave

I would drop Hicks over Bradley. Hicks is not going to be the stud OFer there is Arcia who you own already.

First of all great Avatar

Second, I agree with the above, he or Webster over Bradley. Don't want to drop a possible future stud for a guy who might add to the back of your rotation with a switch to the NL, or he is just as wild as ever and doesnt last 2 weeks on your roster

Trust me when I say this. You do not want to own Liriano under any circumstances in a H2H league. Never again will I own this guy. You could not pay me to own him in any format.

Yes I agree but his has high K potential and if he can get it under control he would be a super stud. If you have something to drop without hurting your team why not take a chance?
