Justin Verlander or Yovani Gallardo

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

Justin Verlander or Yovani Gallardo

Postby kothatsme » Sun Nov 02, 2008 5:52 pm

I need some help. I'm in a keeper league where we get to keep 7 players. so far I've decided on Albert Pujols, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, Nick Markakis, Alex Rios and John Lackey. who I can't decide on is whether I should keep Verlander or Gallardo. please shine some light on this conundrum

Those are a solid six keepers you have in place already.

Now I'm assuming there's no penalty to keep either Verlander or Gallardo and either can be kept for as long as you'd like. My suggestion is you keep Gallardo. Verlander's Strand Rate was pretty bad in 2008, which makes him a bit of a bounce back candidate, but his velocity was down, his walks were up, hits were up, he wasn't being particularly unlucky with BABIP, etc. Verlander will be better in 2009, but he still won't be as good as we saw him in 2007. Gallardo, assuming his injury is better, which it should be, will be a better pitcher.

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 for the advice. in the beginning I was thinking of keeping papelbon and keeping either rios or markakis but I came in last and starting pitching is something I lack. I've got the first pick and rumor is jake peavy could be available to me :)

Wow, Peavy would be great. Hopefully he's still playing his home games in Petco in 2009. Why isn't the Peavy owner keeping him?

he's keepers are most likely gunna be A-rod, aramis ramirez, dustin pedroia, cole hamles, roy halladay and joe nathan. he hasn't decided whether to keep peavy or magglio ordonez. he's leaning towards magglio because peavy numbers were down except his ERA never went above 3. and since he has hamels and halladay he figures that peavy is expendable

Hopefully, he doesn't find Razzball or this forum cause I would tell him to keep Peavy over Mags. I'd even want Peavy over Halladay, but I would want Halladay over Mags, as well, so that's moot.
