I think it might be time to throw in the towel on Lily for this season.

I think I like Karstens the most, he has been lights out. He won't put up gaudy K numbers or anything, but his ERA is tremendous, and has been getting guys out with the greatest of ease it seems. Plus, the Pirates will be getting back Tabata and Alvarez soon, so their lineup is good and will soon be better.

Other than Karstens, I would perhaps consider Burnett just because he's pitching for the Yankees, but I'd ride the hot hand right now--Karstens.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Here's who'd I'd pick up in order of importance:
Jeff Karstens-The Pirates are 1 game out in the NL Central. They are playing for real this time and their pitching is making up for their (sometimes) lack of offense.
Vargas-He plays for a crap offense, but he's a big lefty that will put up solid numbers.
Vance Worley-For every one bad start, he has 4-5 good ones. Not a big K guy, but a nice option with the uncertainty of Oswalt and Blanton.
Fister-Big like Vargas, crappy offensive backing, but puts up quiet, quality numbers.
Aj Burnett-The Yanks don't have A-Rod for 4-6 weeks. They will miss his offense and defense, and it will reflect in AJ's stats. AJ is good 1-6. Once that 7th inning comes around, he's shaky..nice K guy, but he's always a crapshoot, regardless of his offense. And I am a Yankee fan from NJ... 8-o
Moscosco-Might get demoted once Ross starts pitching better, but it's the only reason I rank him behind Burnett.

I gave my suggestion thinking in dynasty mode, Karstens for redraft. Fister deserves better luck than he's had.
