Grienke, Snell, Reyes, Olsen and Hirsh are all good choices that have been said already. Another good one is John Danks.

Joe Saunders is lying around on a lot of Waiver wire's, great ST and start to the season - decent all around numbers really.

I know it sounds crazy, but how about Ramon Ortiz?? I'm not sure if he's been mentioned yet.

From Yahoo: "He signed with the Twins in hopes that highly regarded pitching coach Rick Anderson could clean him up after three straight disappointing seasons."
So far against BAL: 2 ER over 7 IP with 4K
against the Yankees last night: 5 hits and 1 ER over 8 IP with 4 K

Thats extremely impressive against the Yankee's lineup, and I even think its more impressive than what King Felix did against a much maligned and weaker Red Sox lineup. But Felix's game was the most watched game of the season so far, so nobody noticed Ortiz.

Did you watch the Red Sox-Mariners game? If so, you would NOT think that. Felix made the entire Red Sox lineup cry :-o ...

I'm just saying that the Yankees have a much better lineup, and Ortiz didn't get any credit or notice. I'm not saying its unfair or anything. I'm just pointing out that Ortiz pitched the game of his life last night.

And ofcourse I watched the Sox game last night. It's not very often that I get to watch a Sox game televised in Albany. But this is a Sox lineup that could only get 1 run off of Gill Meche, and got only 2 hits and shut out by Robinson Tejada from Texas. They aren't the power lineup they used to be.

Actually, without Matsui the Yanks aren't that scary. Posada bats #6 for them.
