I would rather have Kuroda. I do like Nolasco a lot this year, but like those low ratio safe guys at the back end of the rotation. Especially if this is a HTH league where K/IP isn't that big of an issue.

Help with mine if you get a chance

Give me Kuroda. He is much safer and more reliable.

I think Kuroda is fairly underrated in the fantasy community. I'd go with him.

Kuroda. If you want Nolasco I would cut Bedard or wait a week for him to hit the DL. :-D

I agree with the other people. Kuroda is simply reliable. Nothing cy young worthy but he should be a good rotation guy.

Help?
