I like Cueto's upside and think Myers is a solid pitcher but I tried my best to make my starting pitching a crew that would not give up a lot of runs and let many runners on base. so far the majority have not disappointed except Cueto and Myers. Would you drop either or both of these guys for any of these available arms: Edwin Jackson, Jordan Zimmermann, Andrew Bailey (could he take over as the As closer?), Volstad (for some reason he was dropped this morning, I'd likely have to use my waiver to get him), Mark Buehrle, Andy Pettitte, Anibal Sanchez, Jose Arredondo, Juan Cruz, Rafael Soriano, ZAch Duke, John Maine, Mike Pelfrey, Aardsma, Octavio Dotel and Justin Masterson. I included the middle relievers because I tend to roster one or two at some point in the season, mainly because of the tendency to gave low ERA and WHIP and high K totals with the eventual save or vulture win thrown in.

I should also mention i know my closer situation is pretty gross but i hate overpaying for such an uncertainty and you never know who will blow up.

Lose Myers for Jackson. Hold Cueto for now.

Hey Grey what's your take on Ricky Romero? Is he for real?

I made the move of grabbing JAckson and dropping Myers. I've had it with that wife beater (domestic violence is not a joke but opposing hitters are hitting Myers harder than he hits his wife)
