How would you rank the following AL starters against Rick Porcello?
8 team, 5x5, AL Only keeper lg. that I have a shot to win this year (but also a good foundation for the next few years). I am trying to win this year while protecting the future - tricky, yup.
I'd like to grab Porcello off waivers but I would need to drop one of my SPs.
Rick Porcello - would be $1 salary
SPs on team:
Brett Anderson $1
Gavin Floyd $3 (previous keeper)
Kyle Davies $1
Phil Hughes $1
E. Santana $5 (previous keepr)
John Smoltz $1
Trevor Cahill $1
Yes I did do the Labadini plan as much as possible, fyi- only exceptions were Ervin, G.Floyd, $16 Jenks, and $18 BJ Ryan. My hitting is awesome.
Would you kindly rank (if u have a moment) my SPs - and advise the best candidate(s) to cut, if any?
Fyi- Since a keeper, lots of guys will take $1 young SP for good high salary player come July/August. 2 big NYY fans also in league, they love Hughes.
Thanks a ton for your help Grey, your site is terrific
Thanks for the kind words! I hate Floyd, but for $3 you can't lose him obviously. I'd go with Porcello over Davies, but they're close to a push. My reasoning for Porcello is he's much younger and has huge upside compared to Davies.
