    I picked up Guardado. Should I be shot?

    I'm in a 10 team, head-to-head league. Pitching stats are W, L, CG, SH, SV, HLD, WHIP, K, BB, and ERA.

    My current roster looks like this:
    SP: J. Lackey
    SP: D. Willis
    SP: C. Capuano
    SP: A. Harang
    SP: J. Peavy
    RP: H. Street
    RP: J. Julio
    RP: C. Ray
    RP: M. Timlin
    DL: C. Reitsma

    I've had trouble getting SVs almost all year -- Street and Ray have been solid, but Reitsma was two shades above awful before going on the DL and Julio has been a rollercoaster.

    I figure Guardado has to get some opportunities, and might see a slight NL bump.

    Re: I picked up Guardado. Should I be shot?

    No, you shouldn't be shot. I say that mainly because I just picked him up yesterday as well. I don't feel good about seeing his name on my roster, but my bullpen was a disaster before, so desperate times call for desperate measures.

    I'm mainly hoping for a slight rebound for him after switching leagues, which I think probably will happen to a certain extent.

    Well I voted for being shot in the head, since this is the second time I've had Guardado on my roster this season. Yes, my bullpen has been that bad.

    Anytime you can vulture some saves from a waiver wire pitcher it's usually worth it.

    I voted no shot to the dome, but a good slap to the face might be in order.

    In other words, no harm in picking him up, but don't be a homer and hold him if he starts to implode.
