i would go shields over liriano, but that's about all i can see from your staff. unless you plan on keeping more than five sps, i'd recommend beachy as well.

As a Braves fan, I've watched a lot of Beachy, and that kid is good. I think he's going to surprise a lot of people.

I would definitely say Shields first, and then from there I would go harrison, Lohse (it's hard to predict anything with this guy but its worth it to ride him out and see where it goes, the guys got talent) and after that Tomlin, Beachy, Kennedy, Lackey (I am biased on Lackey because he got lit up for me and I dropped him immediately but who knows if he turned it around or not).

Kennedy's start last night was insane, made him look like a stud...Beachy ha s mad potential but it could also backfire on you...Tomlin is a solid option, but that entire staff can be deceiving ya kno?...And Harrison is a very solid option, especially with that offense backing him up. Shields looks like a #2 SP again, I think he is definitely coming around and should not even be a FA!! Hope this helps a little bit! God Luck! ;-D

I agree on Beachy. He has a lot of talent. I have him on my team as a reserve SP.

I like Beachy. I'd honestly drop Dice-K, but you just picked him up so you're obviously higher on him than I am. He has the ability to put up great numbers, but he also tends to have games where he walks 5 batters and gives up 10 ER. I've been burned by him too many times to risk plugging him into my rotation.
