I'll dissent. Foppert can still be a WHIP liability at times, but is settling in nicely. And old Radke has gotten hot and could very well keep it going.

Probably to late but you could have snagged Radke for a start against DET. use that avail P spot to locate the best avail matchups off the wire .. Thats what I am doing and I am making a killing picking up P against DET. I started this about two weeks ago, I know it was mentioned earlier in the year, but this is kinda fun.

Radke

I'd go with Foppert, all things being equal .... but the Twins have an Easy Street schedule the rest of the way -- a lot of Tigers and Indians series with a couple WS and Rangers games thrown in here and there.

So as a match-up guy, I'd take a close look at Radke rotation schedule for the rest of the year. If it's as favorable as Santana's, get him!

I'd go with Radke, since he's been pitching much better in the last few weeks, and isn't giving up copius amounts of homers anymore. Also, if you look at the rest of the Twins' schedule, it is very soft, with plenty of divisional games against the Tigers and Indians, so he could have a strong finish to the year. Redding scares me because of his home park.

I think Redding's numbers aren't that impressive actually; his WHIP of 1.41 is actually higher than Radke's and indicates his ERA should be higher than it is, somewhere in the mid-4's. I think Redding has been lucky so far and is a blowup waiting to happen.
