I have Ted Lilly (5-6, 4.83, 1.31 whip) and Brad Penny (6-5, 4.19, 1.41)
Would you pick up any of these guys and drop Lilly or Penny?
Carlos Zambrano, CHC (6-6, 3.13, 1.33)
Jake Peavy, SD (7-5, 3.99, 1.33)
Jerome Williams, SF (2-1, 3.65, 1.38)
Aaron Heilman, NYM (0-1, 1.50, 1.33)
Beyond those 4, there's not much out there in my league. Should I make a move or stand pat with Lilly and Penny?
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
Originally, I had 'Robertson' entered instead of Peavy, I had Jeriome R and Jerome W confused for a second (I'm drinkin' ). When I read my post, I edited it, and put Peavy in there, since I liked him best of the rest he mentioned.
I considered changing it to Williams, but chose Peavy because he was listed, and 2 of those games were against the Mariners. He has a lot of potential. Perhaps he is going to turn it on yet, and he can get lots of K's.

Definitely grab C. Zambrano. Seems like each time out he is throwing a quality game. I have to believe the Cubs will try to acquire offensive help beyond Hernandez as the trade deadline approaches, so that will only help him.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
Get Zambrano and Peavy! With regards to Peavy, the guy now has 8 wins on the worst team in the NL. If he can end up winning 15, which seems likely, that'll be one heck of an accomplishment! Really, he's only gotten hit hard on a couple of occasions. Otherwise, Peavy has been very consistent all year long. He's also risen above Lawrence as the best fantasy option in the SD staff.
