Waiver Wire Hunting (WHIR)

Postby BUCCOFAN » Sat Apr 09, 2011 10:01 pm

I am in a deep 15 team league....and trying to score some early Waiver wire options that might pay off for me down the road. We start 8 pitchers a week, (Starters or Relievers) I would be DL U.Jimenez (COL)

SP - C.Morton (PIT) - I still think he has promise, but second start of the season and he has produced 5+ walks again. Maybe he finally figures it out?
SP - A.Harang (SD) - once apon a time this guy won 16 games back to back seasons. Re-Birth @ Petco? nice pitchers park
SP - C.Narveson (MIL) - really like this guy, (sleeper) maybe gets 12-15 wins, and doesn't face many studs with Grienke/Gallardo/Marcum ahead of him.
SP - C.Young (NYM) - similar to Harang, but injury concerns are there....plus he is in the NL-EAST (Braves and Phillies matchups)
SP - J.Arrieta (BAL) - Orioles are flying, and he is a young option on a promising club.
SP - M.Leake (CIN) - might be a numbers game with Cueto do back soon.
SP - K.Corriea (PIT) - another Bucco on the list, but has started the season 2-0.

MY CURRENT PITCHING STAFF:
P - U.Jimenez (COL)
P - Y.Gallardo (MIL)
P - R.Oswalt (PHI)
P - T.Hudson (ATL)
P - M.Latos (SD)
P - B.Arroyo (CIN)
P - J.Hanrahan (PIT)
P - D.Bard (BOS)
BENCH:
P - R.Porcello (DET)
P - J.McDonald (PIT)
P - J.Litsch (TOR)

AFter what Narveson did to my Braves and what he did today to the Cubs, he's looking like a legit option. He's in a weaker division, and your logic about him not facing many "aces" seems smart. Arrieta looked really good too. Good for the O's... might have a contending team.

Long gone....(too bad) he was snagged in our Bench/Minors Draft before the season started.

Harang is one of my favorite pitching sleepers this year because of what you said. He battled injuries last year and should be healthy this year in a pitchers paradise. Narverson and Correia look okay also.
