In an attempt to add pitching depth at the end of my draft (25 rds). I drafted Cueto, Volquez and Parra with my last 3 picks. I am hoping one or two pan out. All 3 have nice upside, I was looking for SPs since my SPs are kinda weak. If for instance Parra is sent to the minors its no big deal as he was the last pick of the draft anyways. I will say that of the 3 I like Cueto the best and he is not in Yahoo yet.

Was at the Brewers/Royals game last night. Parra stunk up the joint.

Some of the singles he gave up were grounders though.

I'm a huge Parra fan and a firm believer that he's this team's long-term #2 starter behind Gallardo. However, I have no idea what they plan on doing with him this year. He's a very late round pick at best this very moment...however, an announcement that he's in the rotation could change that.

I think this is a fantastic strategy. If one of two are bad, simply waive him and get someone else. If they are good, its a great pick.

Parra is certainly worth the risk since he is undrafted in most leagues.

Is it me is there a great crop of young pitchers out there. I can't remember a crop like this in a long time.

It's great so far. You might even add "Blackburn" to this years list with Parra, Cueto, and Volquez.
Remember a few years ago: Liriano, J Weaver, Pappelbon, Matt Cain, Zumaya, and C Hamels
