Trust C Carpenter in H2H playoffs? If so, who to drop?

Postby thorbs » Sat Sep 15, 2012 10:29 pm

Hey all, enjoyed bye week this week and coming into the second round of H2H playoffs next week.

I currently have Carpenter stashed on the DL and was mulling over starting him this week if he's expected to start.

I have 3 must-start SPs in Greinke, Hamels and Shields
2 matchups/must-start guys in Griffin and Niese
1 matchups guys in Hudson

and a not-with-a-ten-foot-pole guy in Macdonald and a shutdown guy I'd like to keep next year in Samardzjia.

I'm inclined to drop Mac to activate Carps, as Macdonald has been all sorts of awful in the second half. Yay/Nay?

McDonald isn't great but Carpenter may go only 5 innings and give up 3 earned... He's no lock either... He's gonna be on a pitch count...

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
