Do I drop him for:

Colby Lewis
Volquez
Lohse
A. Sanchez
McClellan
Carmona
Morton
McCarthy
Niese

Or do I just bench him so see if he turns it around?

I just posted about Bumgarner killing me yesterday and Dempster rocked my ass even harder. I am so sick of having top notch top of the rotation guys and horrendous back-end guys ruining my week and making the other starts meaningless. I don't know if any of those guys are worth it, maybe Lewis. I've been going over Dempster's game log to see if he's ever had a stretch this bad before in his career as a starter and the short of it is no he hasn't... he has had some bad stretches where he runs like 4-5 games of between 3-5 ER per start but he always gave 6 innings during those stretches and never completely imploded.

Anyways I'm no help, my rotation is in absolute shambles and I thought it was filthy when I left my draft.

Lewis should be owned, Volquez has the highest upside & lots of K's with little command, Morton is a bit of an unknown.

Grey has been touting Volquez for a while and Morton more recently, still I think the safest pick would be Lewis.

I'd hold onto Dempster for the time being but keep a close eye on Volquez and Colby Lewis. In other words, I would mlb.tv or gamecast their next starts and see if they put it together, then pull the trigger if one does.

wow... kinda shocked at all the love for lewis.... dude having a shitty year so far. I guess he would be an improvement over dempster right now, but not a very big one.

Lewis' velocity is down, i think he's having a hangover from last year's postseason. I dumped him for Beachy in a 10 team league and nobody claimed him, fwiw.

When the wind is blowing 20+ mph out, don't start him. Way too early to give up on Dempster imo
