Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I wanted to drop this guy after his two terrible starts to begin the season and pick up Justin Masterson in his place, but several people on these boards convinced me that he had to much upside to cut loose.
Now, he's getting crushed again today...and Masterson has already been scooped up...
It is better to have a guy getting beat up now then waiting a few weeks until Masterson gets back to his old ways. Parker is still a good pitcher. Masterson is 28 and he has sucked for 2 years. Why should you change your whole perspective on him based on 3 starts? If anything, you have already weathered the bad times with Parker and you are due for some blow ups with Masterson

No, and I actually didn't even start Parker today. But, he's still on my roster, and I'm just venting that I decided to keep him because of his "upside" instead of taking a flier on Masterson, who has been masterful so far this season.
I'm not really "blaming the boards," haha. Just stating that I followed the advice that I was given and went with the younger player.
So, now I'll ask a new question...Homer Bailey was recently by his owner released after one terrible start. Do I use a waiver claim to drop Parker and pick him up?
