Drop Jim Johnson? WHIR need answer ASAP

Postby ant92 » Wed Aug 21, 2013 3:16 pm

Jim Johnson has really been horrible in the last couple of weeks and apparently the Orioles may go with a committee approach. Should I drop Johnson, activate Grilli who should be back around September 1st, and pick up Clay Bucholz to solidify my pitching staff which has really held me back? My other closer is Farguhar.

last seven days only 2 appearances with 2 Runs scored. its not like it came out of nowhere as he has 9 BS. If your Desperate for Saves Hold onto him. Otherwise cut him. Of course this depends on the league settings H2H OR ROT? If its h2h and your being blown away every week id drop him if your to far in saves to catch up in a ROT Id drop him also

The league is H2H and I'm not exactly being blown away week to week but I'm not producing as many points as when he was solid and paired up with a healthy and also dominating Grilli. I have dropped him and added Bucholz assuming he should get activated soon and will just play with one less RP until Grilli is activated which may actually give me MORE points seeing how Johnson has gotten negatives in his last couple of outings. Anyone else reading this i would still appreciate feedback and would also like to know about Cueto. Anyway, thanks for your advice!

Doubtful Cueto will help you this season.

I don't see the need to add Clay already, hasn't even had a rehab start yet - first one Sunday I think.

Think was too early to make this move.

And for Cueto he may not be back soon enough to help you

Thanks for the help w/ mine.


I'd wait to make this move until we see definitively that Johnson isn't the go-to guy for the O's. He's had real rough patches before and bounced backed to record a lot of saves. Unless you have a much better option on the WW I think you hang on to him for the time being.

I'd stay put for the time being...O's will have lots of save opportunities and you will get to see if Johnson indeed does get axed, but until then, I would not make a move

help me?
