Gallardo was shaky early on, but he is in the zone where he may stay the rest of the season. He is in a relatively weak hitting division, and his offense is going to score him runs. I like him over Price, and getting Drew on top is a nice bonus. For Lester I would have to see the lineup and gauge if Drew really does anything for you, but I would be tempted to take that as well.
I revised the posting title. He won't do Price, but will do Lester. Should I do it?
I give: Lester
I get: Gallardo and Stephen Drew

Anyone else have any thoughts on this one? I'm leaning towards doing it, but, would love to hear a few other opinions. It's a 12-team H2H keeper league, in case that wasn't in my original message. If I do it, I'd probably keep David Price instead of Lester, so, not a huge drop off there. Post your comments and links so I can return. Thanks!
