I need a pitcher, not a belly-itcher

Thanks for the responses. I'm going to take the collective advice and hold off on drafting a pitcher at this point. Clement jumped out at me also, but he's so up-and-down. Last year, he had a game where he gave up something like 9 earned runs in 3-ish innings, but it was rained out. Plus, I'm not a fan of Dusty Baker and how hard he rides his pitchers, so if I miss out on Clement, it's no big deal.

Kip Wells hasn't been getting any interest in this league because he plays on such a crappy team, so I might be able to get him very late. I think his ERA and WHIP will be solid and won't hurt me.

Good idea.

Clement is very frustrating to own. He's got boatloads of potential, and will toss a gem every now and again. But he's prone to blowing up big time. I got so frustrated with him last year that I dropped him. Personally, I like consistency out of my pitchers. Padilla jumps out at me as a solid SP to consider. I'd rank them as follows:

Padilla
Willis
Wells

I'd also consider Penny

What about Mark Redman? You could probably get him down the road a bit.

The next tier:

Kim
Harden
Clement
Thomson
Penny

I thought about Redman also, but I already have Hudson and could get Harden later. I wouldn't want 3 A's pitchers (unless it were Hud, Mulder, and Zito).
