So, I’m in a bit of a quandry for my keeper league team. I know which way I’m leaning, but I’m curious as to what everyone else thinks.
Thanks to Scott Baker’s stint on the DL, I’m left with an open spot in my rotation. My choices are:
- David Purcey vs. Detroit
- Nick Adenhart vs. Oakland
- Micah Owings vs. Pittsburgh
My thoughts is Adenhart. He’s had an extremely strong spring and probably has the most upside of the group. I know upside means nothing to us, but talent is talent and sooner or later it is going to come through. Plus, Oakland is an extremely weak line-up, even with Matt Holliday in the middle.
Detroit’s offense worries me, and Purcey has struggled with his control a bit this spring. If Owings was on the road, I’d definitely start him, but at home I have reservations. Then again, he was lights out last April and with his strong spring could get off quickly once again.
So, what do you think? Which of these three would you start if it were you?
