Matt Garza got a big lift today when Silva went out and pitched 3 innings to the tune of 9 runs. I wouldn't be surprised to see Garza take his spot right out of the gate. Garza was a wait and see what happens pitcher, but I think if you have a spot for him you should pounce.

The problem is Silva is their #3, not their #5 and has been a lock ever since ST started

An 11.02 ERA this spring is going to have Gardy thinking twice about his lock on a spot in the rotation especially after today.

This article just came out on the Star Tribune website....

Sounds to me like he has one more start to keep his spot.

Any thoughts on Gorzellany? He has not had a good spring but has good stuff.

I like Loewen as a nice source of K's

I know he plays for the Rangers now, but B.McCarthy could have a nice season.

I just joined a 16 team league...biggest ive ever played in, so i am hoping to find the next big thing cuz my pitching is very weak right now


Im in a 14 team league and when pitching was dieing out, i went with these guys as possible solid picks, Though spring training doesnt mean too much it is a good sign for nearly all of these pitchers-

A.Reyes- .56 era in 16 innings
Jamie Shields- 2.61 era with 18 k's inn 17.1 innings
McCarthy- not too good stats in spring
Loewen- 1.38 era with 18 k's in 13 innings


Reyes, Shields, and Loewen are my top 3 on the watch list. I'm really pumped to see what they can do this year

Interesting to see how strongly you feel about him.

I'm targeting Hughes, Miller, & Gallardo on waivers for minor league call ups.
Already tested guys I like - Sanchez & Sowers.
