Carpenter or Kershaw?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Carpenter or Kershaw?

Postby Simply Fred » Tue Mar 24, 2009 10:51 am

Which one? Just Wins, K's, and IP's. Seems like a playing itme issue. I'm not too good on assessing injury risk. I know Carpenter coming back. Kershaw, unsure about how long he will stay in games. ???

Carpenter should be up to speed this year, but he's not going to return to a 200 innings pitcher out of the gate. That would be far too much stress on his arm. If he pitches 100 innings, I'd be surprised. Not to mention, he was an injury risk prior to the latest injury. I could see a scenario where he becomes a closer or reliever in the middle of the year. He's very risky. Kershaw isn't as risky and he could be 170 innings/180 K guy that is wild, think Kazmir if healthy.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Thanks, Grey. Parra can be had for about the same price. He probably projects to more innings than Kershaw. Parra the better?

I have Kershaw ahead of Parra by a decent amount.
