Jeff Weaver...oh wait it's buy low not blow. Well in that case I would say Wang of the Yanks althoughhis owner already drafted him on the DL so I doubt you would get him before he comes back.

Carp and Patt are guys with lowered values but I don't think they are "Buys" more like "holds."

CZam was mentioned several times, but how about Dave Bush? He has nice potential but didn't have strong outing recently. I think Aaron Cook is flat out undervalued as a mid-rotation guy or spot starter, no-need to really "buy" him. Despite his 2-0 start, I still think Harang is a buy low because he can anchor your staff and most dont perceive him as a fantasy #1, similar to Lackey in the AL.

I'd buy CZam all day long. To me his pitches look even more sick this year than ever. The ball's moving all over the place.
Unfortunately he's having trouble hitting his spots with all that movement.

I fully expect him to at least receive Cy Young votes this year, if not win it.

For people who still are holding onto roger clemens and arent sure whether he`ll come back, you could get him off of them for cheap.

Zito's lost a lot on his fastball so far this year. He's been barely hitting 85 his last few outings from what I've seen. That's significantly down from the 88-90 of his Cy Young and related years. His fastball was never a weapon, but it offset his curve due to the big speed difference. Until he picks up the velocity a little, I'd be worried about Zito.

BEdards a real nice one right now

Randy Johnson maybe since he hasnt pitched yet

im scared of Ziito, he'll be better & have better ratio's but that team is putrid, he wont get many wins
