Percival/K-Rod problem. What would U do?

Postby riverrat » Mon Jul 19, 2004 3:41 pm

Picked-up K-Rod while Percy was injured. Still have him...waiting. Will Percy go the remainder of year as CL? K-Rod now is just a luxury I cant afford. The ERA/K's are nice but I could use another SP in his place. The ??? is...is Percy healthy enough to finish the year?
Thanks.

I think this is probably Percivals last year, and he really wants to help get the team into the playoffs.

Well, if you can't afford to have K Rod, that's okay. But I think it would it would be a HUGE mistake to just drop him and let someone have him for free. You have to include him in a trade that could get you the starting pitching that you say you are looking for. At least get some value for the best set up man in the AL.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

K-Rod is worth more than the typical FA starter (unless your league is really shallow). His K's are very significant, and his other ratios are a plus when weighed vs. the negatives you're likely to get with the FA.

I agree with that statement. In my roto league, I tried to draft what equaled a stud SP with the combo of K-Rod and R. Soriano. Only 1 of them has held up their end of the bargain. :-P

I dunno if it changes anything, but Percival just gave up 3 runs in the top of the 10th...

K rod has more K's than over half my starting pitching on my staff... I think that means my staff sucks, but you still can get good strikeout numbers from the guy... I'd hold onto him.

Those runs were all unearned cuz eckstein booted a ground ball. he wont lose his job over that.

Unearned or not, he still gave up a walk followed by a HR, which brings him up to 5 HR in under 25 innings pitched this season... :-t
