Francisco Liriano... Should I drop or should I keep hoping?

HTH Points League Daily Changes

This seems to be a big debate. I've read some post that say drop him, he's never coming back to last years for and others who are say hold on to him. I'm also surprised to see that some are considering adding him of the WW or FA. Should I drop him?

NOTE: I did just put him on the block to see if anyone bites...

Well, he was dropped in my league and I'm not picking him up. But, if you have the room to hang on to him, then why not. He claimed that his struggles tonight were due to the cold weather, which might be true, but of course he's still struggled all season, so far. I could see him producing like we're used to, but he does have the tendency to blow a game here and there or go on cold streaks. Depending on what the FA looks like and how much room you have on your roster is what allows you to decide on what to do here. Personally, with what you mentioned is in the FA, I"m dropping him and going after Morrow immediately. Morrow can put up some sick K numbers, as well as keep his era and whip moderately low (which to me sounds like a potential "break-out" ace pitcher). If you have room you could find someone else to drop, like a Melky Cabrera and if you don't want to mess with your current pitcher to offense ratio, then I don't see a "droppable" pitcher on your roster.
