Pitching Keeper Question - Help me escape the cellar

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

Pitching Keeper Question - Help me escape the cellar

Postby Jimmy Kickers » Sat Jan 26, 2013 5:45 pm

Hey all,

Two years ago I was an expansion team. It's been a LONG two years. Going into my third year, I feel I might get out of the cellar this season. I could use a little help with my pitching keepers. Or should I dump the lot of 'em?

Yahoo
14 teams
H2H - standard 5x5
Four keepers + 4 late round keepers (drafted in rds. 19-22)

NOTE: Only one pitching substitution allowed per week.
I need to pick 2 from:
Matt Moore
Dylan Bundy
Daniel Straily
Kris Medlen
Tim Lincecum

In case it's helpful, Shelby Miller is one of my late round keepers.

Thanks! I appreciate the help.

B Yelich

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.

It is between Moore, Medlen and Lincecum. I would probably roll the dice on Lincecum because I still think he can be a top guy. Moore should be kept because he has as much upside as Lincecum though he will likely still have some growing pains but the upside is too big not to keep. I am not sold on Medlen but many are. He might be a little safer than Lincecum but I don't think he has the upside of Linc and there are always concerns with SP with very little track records,

Thanks Fellas.

A quick follow-up question. Perhaps I need to change my perspective: Should I keep Moore/Medlen or Jay Bruce/Asdrubal Cabrera or a combo of the two, i.e., Moore/Bruce?

Thanks for taking a look. I appreciate the help. Sorry the wishy-washy indecisiveness. Living in the league's cellar will do that to ya.

I love Medlen, but Moore Bruce easily
