Should I target one of these SP?

Postby Dash » Mon Jul 02, 2012 12:27 pm


I think my pitching staff is fairly strong now (after multiple trades to fix that position). However, the owner of Dickey, Darvish & Sale just used up all of his starts, so he is selling low on his SPs. Should I target any of those three to replace Gallardo or Josh Johnson? Both have been pretty solid of late, but I'm curious about what they may look like for the 2nd half. I have some pretty decent bench bats that I could use as trade bait. I don't want to rack up on too many SP, because I am limited to only 45 more starts for the year.

Dickey (good pitcher; knuckleballer that is thrown with a little more heat than other pitchers historically; no reason to think he can't keep throwing it and throwing it; he is the safest bet)
Darvish (good run support; hitter's ballpark as home field; too many walks)
Sale (good pitcher, wicked slider; will most likely be on innings limit; so risky)

I'd go with Dickey and offer Johnson...keep Gallardo.
