    Drop and Add

    After Chien-Ming Wang wretched performance this evening, I'm thinking about dropping him and picking up Kyle Lohse. Now I'm not a fan of Lohse but based on their first two starts it appears to be a no brainer.

    Any thoughts?

    I may give it another start or two. Any other pitchers of note available on the waiver wire?

    Not really. We've got 12 teams so the pickin's are pretty slim.
    As far as starters go, I've got:

    Jon Lester
    Ted Lilly
    Matt Cain
    Chien-Ming Wang
    Erik Bedard
    Aaron Harang

    I would either hang with Wang (poetry!) or pitch and ditch with your last spot.

    Two years ago Wang had a GREAT year then got hurt last year (foot, non pitching related). I have him on my team too, I plan to stick it out awhile and see if he pulls it back together.

    If Lohse is still available, I would go get him now. I'm not a big fan of his but he put up good fantasy numbers last year and is obviously doing the same this year. A couple more good starts and you'd wish you had him and he might draw some trade interest
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    well after wang's most recent joke of an outing, I pulled the trigger and cut wang and picked up Lohse.

    Hopefully it'll pay off.

    Same here. I went with Lohse a week ago. I'm hoping to move him for a closer after he continues to put up good numbers.

    The Cardinals won't move Lohse to the bullpen. He is valuable to them as a starter and they have plenty of closer options (Motte, Perez, Franklin, etc.).
