I take Dempster over Nova.
Which Holland? I'm guessing Greg?
DL Carpenter, grab Niese.
Don't waste a spot on Aviles.
If someone gets hurt, you can find someone like him.

Yes Greg (Matt is available too..but obviously I would go with Dempster over him is I go SP)...I believe he is the closer for now right?

Hmmm I'm not too big on any of those guys, but if I had to pick someone, i'd go with Dempster.

Sorry I'm late in responding. Thanks for your input on my question.

I would DL Carpenter and pick up Dempster. Don't dump Cespedes for Mike Aviles. No point. Hang onto to Cespedes and see what happens. If he starts in AAA and injuries on your roster force you to dump him then so be it. But don't toss away the upside on a replacement level player like Aviles. You drafted him for upside so try see how it plays out with him.

Buehrle should be in the mix since its an H2H, IP league. If it was a normal H2H league or a roto league, I wouldn't recommend him but he's averaged a 3.80 ERA while NEVER pitching under 200 innings (I don't count his rookie season).

THANKS GUYS! Really appreciate all the great response....

Morneau just hit waivers and will be available on the 27th....does he change anyone's recommendations?

I'm surprised no one said anythign about Gamel. If you go hitter I'd take a flyer on him with Morneau being a close second. Guy can hit is being given the 1B job.

If you go pitching I say Buehrle. And I hate myself for recommending him but you know what you're getting with him-good era and whip and lots of innings. Dempster would be #2 here.
