Fantasy Baseball: Week 8 Start 'Em or Sit 'Em Breakdown

What should fantasy baseball managers do with the struggling Dan Haren?

Another week, another set of choices to make with your fantasy baseball lineup.

If you listened to my advice last week, you took a shot on Scott Kazmir, only to see him give up four runs, and steered clear of Francisco Liriano as he shined.

You also finally caved in and sat (or dropped) Jonathon Niese before he delivered a quality start against the St. Louis Cardinals. But at least you got a complete-game shutout from Brandon McCarthy.

This week presents a completely new batch of dilemmas for fantasy owners. Is it time to stray away from Dan Haren and Marco Estrada? Is it safe to believe in Ubaldo Jimenez and Rick Porcello? Should you give up on that Justin Verlander bum? (If you're in one of my leagues, then absolutely).

Let's take a look at some starting pitchers whom fantasy gamers may be on the fence with playing or benching this week.
