Justin Masterson/Slowey

Postby Garnold » Sun Apr 25, 2010 2:33 pm

These two gentlemen make me sad. Their opponents? The Royals and the Athletics?

The results? Two losses and horrific WHIPlash.

Whoops, Masterson just gave up a bases-clearing double to Kouzmanoff, who I just dropped. DELICIOUS.

Agreed. Masterson is off my team. I gave him a shot, he blew it.

Might pick up his teammate Tallet as a replacement. I'll watch him in his next start first. I don't trust CLE starters right now.

I'm thinking of dropping him, too, as he's placed two steaming turds on my match up this week. Unfortunately, I'm in a deep, smart league, so there's not a lot sitting on waivers. Here are some options: Justin Vargas, Colby Lewis, Chris Young the Taller, Mat Latos, Ian Kennedy.

Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards Young or Kennedy, but Vargas has been solid.
I like sports with balls in them.

Kennedy and Latos (of course, they're on my team), but I did draft Colby Lewis. The K's are there and the coaches have those guys in Texas pitching deep enough to be a viable option. He'll walk alot of guys but get away with it more often than not due to strikeouts.

I'm personally not a Chris Young fan, but the ballpark is right and he's decent enough.

I don't think Vargas will even be starting when Lee returns and even if he was...no...just no.

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.
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've finally cut him. I was excited about his strikeout potential, but he's clearly just not meant to be a starting pitcher.

If he could field worth a shit, he'd have 5 more runs added to his ERA.

I can't hate on Slowey. Despite his poor game against KC today he still ended up the week for me with a win, 11 Ks, and a livable 3.38 ERA and 1.20 WHIP.

Masterson though, glad I benched him all week.
