With your team I would rather grab another closer than one of the available starters

I hear ya, but only myers, francisco, capps, thornton and oaks sitch are out there so i figured goin SP depth. Im generally fine with jus rolling 2 or 3 closers into the season and jus playin waivers w em. its a weekly h2h so 2 closers/wk is plenty imo. Did ya like any of those pitchers names more than the others? I really like nicasio this yr and wonder about hughes and matusz.

thanks HOOTIE. I can always count on you for awesome advice. I really like nicasio this yr and think i like him more than demptster and nolasco in this lge because of his youth and upside. How do you feel about him this yr?

I'd give Johan a shot. If that's Ervin he's #3 on the list behind Dempster and Hughes.

Dempster
Nicasio
Floyd. (could still be traded which would likely be good)

If you want a high risk reward guy I would go with Johan
Hughes is battling Garcia for the 5th starter. Yanks would like him to do great and win it but unless he dominates he is proven out of the pen so would say he has no better than 50/50 chance right now

As far as Matusz
Not touching any Baltimore pitches this year, all of the al east offenses seem so strong and I don't predict a good year for the o's

I could be wrong but the yanks are hinting at starting the season with a 6 man roto
