Drop anyone for Anibal Sanchez or Burnett? (WHIR)

Postby zyzzbrah34 » Tue Jun 18, 2013 8:58 am

Both recently hit the DL and are now available in my league. Anyone worth dropping for either or both of them?

My top tier pitchers- Cain, Hamels, Felix
My second tier- Medlen, Shields, Kuroda, Wood

Roto, non-keeper

My worst batters are probably Martin Prado, Pedro Alvarez, Daniel Nava, Wilin Rosario. But I can't drop the first two because I won't have replacements until Pablo or Asdrubal return from the DL. Nava has been strong. So maybe Rosario, but it makes more sense to me to drop a pitcher.

Thats a tough one.....I would say drop wood for Anibel. Wood is definitley pitching well, but sanchez has ridiculous K potential. Is there anyone else besides wood, maybe a bat u can drop?????

My most droppable batter is Rosario but he has such great power potential. Since my league has 1500 innings cap, I'd prefer to drop a pitcher

Why is Anibal Sanchez sitting in FA? That's insane.
Like some idiot dropping Justin Upton in my league 8-o
If Rosario is a second/b/u catcher I'd drop him for Anibal...then try to scoop him back up off waivers after stashing Anibal on your DL. If you fail at getting Rosario back then grab up a Castro or something out of FA.

My DL is full. Rosario is my backup because I have Napoli

You'd drop Rosario before you'd drop Wood, Medlen or Kuroda? It seems silly to me to not drop a pitcher for Sanchez because then I'll have eight pitchers. Sanchez is only supposed to miss two starts

Tough call since you only have the one DL, I would say both otherwise but definitely Annibal. Nava has been solid but I'm kind of thinking it'll become the rise of mike carp and the decline of Nava from here on out

Who would you say is my worst pitcher? Kuroda, Medlen, or Wood? I think I'd prefer to drop a pitcher because I don't see the point of having 8 since there's a 1500 innings cap

Def not Kuroda, Wood has probably been a little lucky so far but I wouldn't be that surprised to see Medlen head to the pen when Beachy comes back.
