I had Myers, Snell, and Hill in one of my leagues, but I dropped every one of them and replaced them with Billingsley, Kershaw, and Rauch. I also have Harang in that league, but I don't think I'm dropping him. It's a good thing I have Zambrano and Lincecum because my pitching would be weak.

I'm going to have to go with Dustin McGowan. Even before tonight's complete game, he had a 3.38 FIP (11th in the majors). He also has a great HR/9 (4th best in majors), and a decent 2.00 K/BB. Impressive considering he hasn't seemingly pitched that well so far.

AJ Burnett has similar peripherals so watch out for him.

McGowan would be my other to Cain. He's sporting some new glasses now and surprise, his control has drastically improved.

He's got a lot of tred on that arm the past few years, so I would avoid unless you can get him for your #3-#4 OF who you can afford to lose.

Verlander looks just fine to me. He'll hit a few bumps but outside of the atrocious April (which you really shouldn't put too much stock in anyway), he's been pretty good.
