Jason Vargas of the Marlins is my best bet.

Jae Wong Seo, Odalis Perez, Brandon McCarthy, Chris Young, Chris Capuano, Jon Garland, Jose Contreras, Francisco Liriano, Aaron Heilman, John Papelbon are guys I see going cheaply at the end of drafts.

In a 12 team league Garland, Capuano and probably even Contreras will go for more than that. Liriano too if it is a keeper.

Chris Young is a good target, I expect Doug Davis to rack up the SO. Chacin may be worth a look, Matt Cain, Derek Lowe. If he can cut down on the HR against Weaver could be a very good bargain.

At this point in the draft I also like to look for some good relievers who have a chance of getting some saves - Mike Gonzalez if he is not already taken, Borowski, Chirs Ray etc.

Yeah I agree . In my AL only Conteras went for $9.00 last year. Liriano if he makes the team will go for that and maybe a little higher.Usually when we get to the end of the draft the starting pitching is weak. Very weak.

I don't think you're gonna find a CY in the pool of $3-$1 players, but here's are some to target IMHO:

Cain, Morris, Penny, Liriano, Seo, Silva (great K:BB, but not so great K/9)

More risky options would be Bedard or Chen, especially playing in the AL East.

Also keep an eye on Grienke's "depression". If traded he could be a huge pickup.

Any of the three from the bottom end of FLA's rotation: Vargas, Olsen, and I actually like Mitre a lot, too.

One guy I think is worth a late flier is Ted Lilly. If he can bounce back to his '04 stats (think 4.00 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 170 K's), he could potentially hit 12-15 wins.
