Bump

If all of these SP seem underwhelming WW fodder, should I go after Jon Rauch or Jonny Venters for saves help? Which one if so?

Think I would go with Neimann. He should give you some Ws and IPs with hurting you too much in other cats. Might even get you some Ks.
League Setup:
13 Team Points League
6 Hitters 3 Pitchers (Positions don't matter)
1B = 1, 2B = 2, 3B = 3, HR = 4, RBI = 1
Win = 12, Save = 5

Dice-K is the one to grab if hes still available.
He's doing well in his last spring starts, which count more than the earlier ones for evaluation, and he used to be a 2nd-tier Ace. Hes got all you want in an Ace: Ks, Wins, Decent ERA/WHIP. The lure of an Ace off the wire is too great. Gotta grab him

Otherwise, its C Young/ Richard Clayton/ Garland. All are possible 14-15 winners and off the wire, cant go wrong. Young/Clayton 140-150Ks, Garland 130ish if lucky. So the others are better because they provide more.
I love mock drafts.

No one really stands out but I would take a chance on Richard personally.
