I play in a 14-team, 25-man roster, 5x5 H2H, non-keeper league. Because we have so many teams, there are a painfully small amount of viable free agents. I need help with two of my roster spots for starting pitchers.
Currently, I own Kyle Drabek and Kyle Lohse. However, Ervin Santana, Scott Baker, and Edinson Volquez just hit the waiver wire.
Out of those 5 SPs, which 2 should I own?

Volquez is in a nice situation and has easily the best K potential. The WHIP's always a concern (as is the start to 2011) but I like this arm.
Lohse? Great start but I'm just not a believer. Low K's and a career ERA not far from 5.00.
Drabek's a nice young pitcher but not sure I'd take him for one season over some of these other guys.
Santana was awfully good last year and is a nice arm.
Baker's a safe choice...just doesn't get you all warm and fuzzy inside.
I'm tempted to say Volquez and Santana. Insert Baker if you want to go a little "safer". Lohse and Drabek are solid options as the odd men out.
Just to add my 2 cents...Im real weary of Drabeks # holding up through the whole AL East schedule. Any chance you can trade his name for another starter? In my leagues managers pop at the much hyped rookies way too soon. If not Id probably have to lean towards Volquez and Baker, with Santana a close 3rd if you wanted to take a bigger risk.
