Drop Beckett to stream?

Postby guyincognito » Wed Apr 24, 2013 12:57 pm

I typically like to leave one SP spot open to stream pitchers. Unfortunately I filled that spot when I jumped on Valverde last night once the news came out that he will be the closer, since everyone in my league is searching for SVs. I figured I will now try to package a closer or two in a deal for an upgrade a SP or elsewhere, but my question is, should I drop Beckett right now until I get a deal done to open up that streaming option? I could really use the help this week as I don't have enough pitching to match my opponent, but just not sure if I should do it at the expense of Beckett. I know he's not the same player he once was, but is he on par with or better than my options on the wire: Quintana, Corbin, Villanueva, Hanson, Davis, Parker, Marcum, Arroyo.

The other option would be to drop Hosmer as he hasn't been doing much of anything and I have a ton of 1B options since Frazier, Carpenter and Santana all have eligibility at 1B. But I think I'd prefer to hold off on dropping a bat right now.

Beckett has been getting hit for the past couple seasons. I still do think hes a good pitcher but right now hes just struggling bad other then that one good outing he had thus far. Quintana is hot right now and if you're going to stream you want a hot player at the time you need him. If youre going to drop Beckett i suggest picking up Quintana.

help please?
