Why have 8 starting pitchers? Isn't there an innings limit in your league? I ran into trouble with this my first go around, and went from 1st to 5th in the last month of the season because, when the limit was reached, I couldn't accumulate any more pitching stats.
But if you are indeed set on dropping Drabek for Jurrjens of De La Rosa, I'd go with De La Rosa. While both are decent #4 fantasy starters, De La Rosa's strikeout potential makes him much more valuable in my opinion.

The ideal prototypical sought after SP is this:
1:1 inning to K ratio +, Low ERA/WHIP, 17+ wins even in a bad team (mark of a top sp stud)
Or close to it. Near 1:1 K to Innings ratio, 4.5ish era and low 10 wins is still a good stud ace-type SP.
So far Drabek seems to be this. His last start was against the yankees and still, he wasnt too shaby. This is who youre considering dropping. Jurrjens seemed to be close to this based on last years sampling so you could grab & hold him while you confirm, and drop someone else. Not Drabek.
La Rosa as well.
Basically you want to get as many of these types of guys as possible. You dont want to flip them. Drop other SPs that dont fit that prototype, in exchange for possible ace-type SPs. Make sure the guy youre tosssing stinks though.
