Re: Pitching dillema
I have no love for Contreras, so I would drop him. That being said I have Burnett as well and I think he will look relativly poor his first few starts, then he will mix some above average, average, and bad start. (so it is probably really a coin flip as to which one will be more valuable.)
But, I would definatly drop Rhodes of Affeldt...(I didnt want to question Billy Beane as far as closers go, but Rhodes has not done well in the spot before, I see him being traded to a lefty setup role on another team.) Affeldt seems secure and I think he was meant for the task all along, after he gets into the groove again the K's and S's will come.
