Dempster SUCKS!

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Dempster SUCKS!

Postby jebusfreek666 » Sat Apr 23, 2011 12:46 pm

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.
10 team H2H 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1Flex(including QB), 1D, 1K, 25 passing yds = 2pts, 5rush/rec yds = 1pt, all TDs 6pts, PPR

QB - Drew Brees
RB - C.J. Spiller
RB - Vick Ballard

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.

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
