why am I not dropping Scherzer?

Postby Beardawg » Tue Apr 24, 2012 5:37 pm

this is abominable, against the M's no less! I feel like cutting bait on Scherzer and going fishing in the stream.

Still too soon you say?
the pandemic killed my 17 year keeper league, now a 6 team redraft this year, and it's actually kind of wild. Any long-time commenters interested to restart a keeper league in 2022 hit me up.

I told myself if I can't start him at home against the Mariners who can I start him against. A 9.0 ERA and 2.4 Whip later I guess I know the answer to my own question. He is staying stapled to my bench until he strings together a couple of decent starts. Thanks Max for ruining the gem of a game Bumgarner pitched for me yesterday.

well I dropped him. I figure nobody will pick him up for his start against the yanks at this point, so I can probably pick him back up if I want.

I actually did the same and dropped him for Chacin's start tomorrow against the Pirates. For a back end of the rotation guy for me I would rather just keep a bench spot available to stream a pitcher than worry if he can ever get a handle on his control issues. Makes it more fun.

He's always been a wild card. I think by June you'll want to own him again.

I know he has a history of being all over the place - hot/not, control/none...

Wouldn't you think he was tipping his pitches? Or were the Mariners so embarassed about being perfecto'd that they decided to focus a bit more on the Scherzer tape before the game and in the batters box?

I started him over Johan Santana yesterday... crud.
