How about this Correia guy? He seems to be pitching ver well lately.

Corriea has been somewhat decent, Im not liking him too much though. He hasn't been too outstanding. He did have a good start against the Mets yesterday but he has a 3.60 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in his last 5 starts. Not too bad but nothing to really jump about. Ill keep an eye on him but I don't know about picking him up yet.

He's been pitching pretty well lately but I don't think that he projects to become anything more than maybe a #3 starter. He has a low-90's fastball with lots of movement but other than that he has pretty standard stuff, not anything that special. I wouldn't pick him up until he has another decent start, and even then only if you need pitching badly. Like I said, he doesn't look as if he will blossom into a top of the rotation starter in the future, and will probably only have marginal fantasy value.

Thanks for the info. ;-D

I picked up Diaz and Valverde last week. They both could help me out in the playoffs.

Also CC Sabathia has been very good the past 5 starts, and may be available since most owners got rid of him a long time ago.
