Keeper or redraft? The answer is likely yes to both -- just curious.

I think so. Depends on your bench and if you can risk grabbing him.

Thanks for the advice fellas ;-D

The biggest #1 waiver picks so far this year in my money league have been 1) hamels 2) marcus giles---and 1/3rd of the season if over......so i think i'll take a chance on billingsly

WOW Billingsley's stuff is just downright nasty. He can hit mid/high 90's and has a zito like curve. Glad i got him on my team. ;-D

I wouldn't compare his curve to Zito's. Zito has that big ol' lofty slow curve while Bills' is more of a late breaking hard curve. He looks a bit like Ben Sheets out there. ;-D

Cole Hammels once gave birth to a child... then went back in time to use it's head to strike out Hank Arron on his birthday



Verlander, Liriano, Weaver... now Bilingsly... keep em coming
