Haren @ Hellickson * Helloween!
King Felix @ Wilson
Buehrle @ Francis
Dice-K @ Talbot *Dice K going so late in drafts no real need to push it just yet unless you are feeling lucky.
Verlander @ Bergesen
Pavano @ F. Garcia *I’m off the Pavano train. Wait and see on Freddy.
Braden @ Litsch
Correia @ Carpenter
Galarraga @ Dempster
Billingsley @ Hammel
Lincecum @ Stauffer *Stauffer nice work on road vs. Cards so have to go with him at home.
Pelfrey @ Blanton *Going to hold off on Pelfrey here.
Figueroa @ Volquez *Owners still shell shocked from Volquez’s last start, but it is the Astros. Better options but worth keeping an eye on.
L. Hernandez @ Volstad
Minor @ Mitre *After much thought I’ll pass on Minor @MIL but still a fan.

Bumgarner @ Harang
Young @ Hamels

Marquis @ An. Sanchez
Lowe @ Gallardo – cash in your profits on Lowe from last time, don’t push!

“I’ll agree. Curious to see about Lohse but no real reason to play with fire on him right now. Watch Cust hit 3 HR.”
