Out of the bunch, Cueto definitely warrants being picked up. He's coming into his prime years and has very good stuff. Entering the season on the disabled list had us a bit leery, but his season debut was more than solid. The Reds lineup will give him a lot of run protection as well. Now, between Kuroda or Ogando, I'd have to advise keeping Kuroda. He has a more history of success, although Ogando has been blazing hot to start his career. Maybe you can trade Ogando for relief/hitting help or a 2 for 1 starting pitcher deal. Then use the extra slot to pick up Cueto.

I don't see why you wouldn't just use the FA list as your bench, mixing and matching each week with easier opponents. Hellickson,Cueto, Floyd, Lowe all are started almost every week in every league I play in, you can grab 1 1 week then another the next based on who and where they'll make their next start. I don't think you can just say take this guy and start him week in and week out with so much talent in the FA pool. Really, you don't need much after your triple aces; just someone to not blow up and offset the top of your rotation. Don't get locked in to anyone, just play the look ahead game each week

G.Floyd or J.Cueto are the plays here.

Your Starting Pitching is sick.

You need to update your team roster on your profile. When is that lineup from? 2001?
