[It's always amusing to look at your roster a few weeks in and compare it to the team you drafted...I've been fortunate enough to pick up Bartlett, Francisco, Scutaro, Bourn (we'll see how long that lasts), Baker, and Helton (shocking) to replace......ahem, Carlos Guillen, Pierzynski (horrible), Maybin (crap), Lowrie, O. Cab, and Wheeler. Ricky Romero and Tommy Hanson are also recent additions.]
Anyway, ON TO THE BURNING QUESTIONS OF THE DAY:
(1) Mat Gamel is available on the wire and, with A-Ram on the DL for who knows how long, my thought is to drop Rolen for him. I figure Gamel has better upside and Rolen's an injury risk and is fairly inconsistent (though batting in the middle of a great offense). On the flip side, I'm hearing Gamel's time in the bigs may be brief - and while he's up, his AB's will be limited.
(2) Should I drop Ricky Romero for De la Rosa? I'm troubled by this question, and have spent 3 days arguing with myself over it. I haven't heard any news on when or if Romero will be called back up, but this guy's stuff was electric early in the season. I've got one foot on the De la Rosa train but the voice in the back of my head says he's historically inconsistent and, heck, it's only been his past 2 starts where he's been dominant. PLUS, he pitches for the Rockies for God's sake. How could I possibly live with myself if I go through with it? Somebody tell me please.
(3) Thoughts on Aardsma and Andrew Bailey? My league counts holds, and either one can help me in that category. Which one's for real? Will Aardsma hold onto the CL role when Morrow's 100 percent? Assuming that Romero doesn't figure to get called up any time soon, should I stand pat on my SP's (with the hope that Lester turns it around and Hanson will perform as advertised) and look to pick up one of these guys instead?
THANKS FOR ANY INPUT, PEEPS. LEAVE YOUR LINK.
