Well, right now Hamels since he's the talked about guy. But he's also has the biggest injury concern and most potential. I spend it on Hamels and hope that Billingsly coes up later in the year. before Hamel's hot start he was capable of going through to FA, not now though. 3 HR in his professional career (180IP), WOW!

neither....use a high waiver on a hitter...Howie Kendrick for example if you're in a rush.

Billingsley, Hamels still could get hurt at any point. Until he has one injury free season he is still at a very high risk.

Billingsley is one Dodgers SP injury away from being in LA full time. Hamels has looked great so far this year, but his past injury experience is still very scary to me.

i guess with that debacle in the 9th against SD they want to shore up their bullpen rather than mess with their starting pitching...

billingsley is still a fantastic pickup if you can get him...i expect him to be a monster if/when he is called up.

Ken Gurnick, of LosAngeles.Dodgers.MLB.com, reports Los Angeles Dodgers SP Chad Billingsley could replace SP Odalis Perez in the starting rotation. Billingsley is currently 3-0 with a 1.59 ERA for Triple-A Las Vegas.
