    Which FA Pitcher

    I play in a unique, offline, fantasy league with a custom scoring setting. This season, we are playing 3 seasons with 1st and 2nd half splits, as well as overall stats, creating 3 chances to win.

    The scoring is as follows:


    Singles - 1pt

    Doubles - 2pts

    Triples - 3pts

    Homeruns - 2pts

    RBI - 2pts

    Runs Scored - 2pts

    Walks - 1pt

    Stolen Bases - 1pt


    Win - 10 pts

    Innings Pitched - 2 pts

    Earned Runs Allowed - (1pt)

    Strike Outs - .5pt

    We get 1 move (position for position, drop catcher to pick up catcher, drop OF to pick up OF) before the end of May and this is where I am stuck

    Keep in mind, when you add a player with 100 points for a player with 80 points, you get the 20 points in the standings. It is not like Yahoo, ESPN, where you only get points after you add player.

    I have Mat Latos, who has yet to pitch but could be a very valuable 2nd half player and I do not want to drop him.

    Should I let go of Samardzija (74 points) Garza (74) or Pineda (62) for Kyle Lohse (114.5) who goes tonight and could really jump ahead of the FA pitching crop?

    Here are the available Pitching FA's:

    Kyle Lohse 114.5

    Jason Hammel 113.9

    Mark Buehrle 107.7

    Tim Hudson 107.5

    Aaron Harang 105.9

    Scott Kazmir 105.7

    Tyson Ross 103.4

    Alex Wood 101.5

    Dillon Gee 100.9

    Ian Kennedy 99.5

    Wade Miley 97.0

    John Lackey 96.0

    Wily Peralta 95.9

    Ervin Santana 93.9

    Jason Vargas 93.0

    Jenrry Mejia 90.7

    Garrett Richards 90.5

    OR I have Kole Calhoun on the DL and I can drop him for an OF

    Chris Colabello 121

    Matt Joyce 101

    Angel Pagan 99

    Gerardo Parra 97

    Eric Young 96

    Marcell Ozuna 93

    Dayan Viciedo 92

    David Murphy 88

    Marlon Byrd 86

    Jason Kubel 84

    Keep in mind, I do not have to make a move until May 31 and I am not even really competitng for the 1st half pirze, so should I just ride it out until the end and take who ever has the most points?
