Do I pick up Lackey?

Postby dream_017 » Mon May 16, 2011 11:29 am

The Lackey owner dropped him this week - do I try to pick him up?

I am in a H2H points league - this is my 2nd year playing and first with this format. I am one of the highest scoring teams so far - yet my record is only 2-4. I am not ready to make huge changes, but I think Lackey will hopefully turn it around and I have some room and time for him. It is a 14 team league with 5 SP and 2 RP starting spots with weekly line-ups.

Pitcher Scoring:
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -1 point
BS - Blown Saves -2 points
ER - Earned Runs -2 points
HA - Hits Allowed -1 point
HB - Hit Batsmen -1 point
HD - Holds 2 points
INN - Innings 3 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
L - Losses -5 points
NH - No-Hitters 10 points
PG - Perfect Games 20 points
S - Saves 5 points
SO - Shutouts 5 points
W - Wins 10 points

My team:
R Barajas
A Gonzalez
D Uggla
E Longoria
E Andrus
T Hunter
M Joyce
C Rasmus
A Huff
G Soto
A LaRoche
E Encarnacion
N Cruz
K Johnson
H Bailey
T Cahill
J Weaver
CJ Wilson
R Wolf
K McClellan
D Storen
E Santana

I'd stay far away from Lackey. The only league I owned him in was a very deep 20 team league, and I cut bait with him after his last start. He's done nothing to warrant being rostered at this point, and I'd rather let someone else deal with the headaches.

I don't see anything I would drop for him right now. Keep an eye on him and if he shows some success, then maybe I pick him up but right now there really is no need.
