Ian Stewart isn't doing you any good right now, I'd drop him. I could see a case for both pitchers, but I'm going with Hellickson there simply because he's buzzy and has trade value if he strings together some starts.

I'd definitely shoot for both of em. Neither should be on the wire, especially in a 12-team league. Ian Stewart is expendable and I like both over: Olivo, izturis, Lowe & possibly pavano. If I had to rank them, I'd agree with Hellboy slightly ahead...if nothing more than trade value (also, he has RP eligibility).

Please help:

Any of your bench players are droppable for one or both. I would pick both up. They have good value in a 12 teamer. Hellickson is probably more tradeable down the line but I think if you plan on keeping them then go with Wandy. Hellickson have an innings limit as the season wears on.

I agree with the others. Grab both if possible. You have enough other quality P options that you can go for the higher upside guy in Hellickson if you can only get one. Can drop Ian Stewart, Izturis, and Pavano (in that order). If you need to trade Wandy or Hellickson later, I think each would return players better than Stewart, Izturis, etc.
