Vladdy
Wright
Reyes
Tulowitzki
V. Mart
Zambrano
Markakis
Gallardo

I like Markakis better than Hawpe, and he has way better dollar value...same with Gallardo over Matt Cain. Everything else looks pretty clear.

Pitching was what was really driving me crazy. I thought I had figured out Cain & Gallardo, but now you say Zambrano & hughes, which I also like, just trying to get most for the money. We use the Sporting News for the "bible" on player salaries & this year they have Gallardo @ $26, HUghes $11, Zambrano $22, & Cain $16

Sorry, I actually changed my mind and edited my post. I would keep Gallardo over Hughes. Cain is good, but Zambrano will help you way more.

I would feel very comfortable going into a draft with Zambrano and Gallardo as my two SPs.

Cain and Gallardo isn't bad, either, but I'd go with Zambrano.

No-brainers:
Markakis
CPena

Just too tough to lose:
Gallardo
Tulo
DWright
JReyes

OUT - Get 'em cheaper at the draft?:
Zambrano
Vladi
Cain

That leaves Hughes (who I like if you have a bench), V-Mart (maybe at value, but nice to have at C), and Hawpe. Seems like Hawpe at $13 in a 12-team mixed league isn't much of an undervalue.
