I play in a 6x6, H 2 H daily transaction keeper league that counts OPS and holds. I have been waiting for a spot to open up to pick up Michael Pineda, since I have at least 3 pitchers destined for the DL for the start of the season (Santana, Morrow and Peavy). I have 2 DL slots, so there will be room opening up on my roster. However, as I see more and more good press for Pineda (especially as a keeper) and as it is now virtually assured that he will be starting in the major league rotation, I am worried that I someone will grab him before any of these three guys are placed on the DL.
As I see it, Santana is the biggest question mark of those three for this year. Would you guys drop him (or someone else) for Pineda, or should I just be patient?
As always, I'll answer any of yours in return - just post a link.
