I like it; Beachy should post better ratios and slightly more k's. Watch out for an innings cap with Beachy; while you may think that will only affect him late in the season, it will cost him a few wins as his manager watches his pitch count.

However, I would make the move since Beachy certainly deserves to be rostered in every league and Pavano is a fringe talent. His potential for wins shouldn't be understated: good team and pitches deep into games, but he is unlikely to finish in the top-40 SP again after his over-his-head 2010 performance.

Help with mine, please:

Gotta take the chance on Beachy... great team, NL starter vs. AL starter, Pavano's K rate is in decline, upside vs. downslope of career... need I go on...? I don't think u risk much here; I'd have to see your staff to say for sure... but at first glance I'd say do it. Take a look at mine.
