if i pickup both kazmir (store him on my dl) and floyd...then to activate Kazmir i'll have to drop floyd or i'll be unable to make any roster moves until i move the (non-DL player) out of my DL slot.
i would take this chance... if you can't make a move for a week or 2 i would take that handinhand with making sure Kazmir has everything worked out... no way Kazmir should be a FA, hell even on Yahoo hes owned by 81% of teams... i rank them about the same...
I am not a Floyd fan myself. I would probably take Smoltz and Kazmir when healthy over the other 2 although there is some risk involved. Floyd has been horrible until his last few outings and his numbers tailed off at the end last year. I would even take a chacne on Hanson over Floyd.
Scott Kazmir dl John Smoltz dl Tommy Hanson Gavin Floyd
These guys are out of the equation completely:
Kris Medlen Ben Sheets na LaTroy Hawkins

5x5 H2H, NK 10 teams C- JP 1B- Voto 2B- Zobri 3B- ARam SS- Rolins OF- J. Uptn, Choo, A. Gordn UTIL- Fielder BN- C. Crawfrd SP- Hamls, Bumgarner, Galardo, I. Kenedy, Fister, Kurda, Minr, Dempstr, Burnet, Ogando RP- Cishek, Veras, Parnel
For my two cents I say Kazmir's the best pickup purely off of upside, as there'd be no question he's the best pitcher in this group if he wasn't returning from injury.
After that, I like Hanson's potential as worthwhile flier as well. Then probably Floyd, who's been the most consistent choice.
Smoltz is worth keeping an eye on for sure, but I can't rank him ahead of guys who are producing when his injury battles are clearly chronic and the result of his career winding down. He can definitely still pitch, but even when healthy, can he really go deep enough into games to get wins anymore?
