I'm quite a fan of Mike Minor - I think he'd by my add if I were in your place.

I think the more likely SP on that list to break out is Bud Norris. Great K/9 rate, and I think the other peripherals are going to come around. He might not get W's, but he'll be a QS machine I think.
(In reference to an Aaron Hill for David Price swap)

Anybody else? Drop Broxton/Pomeranz for Minor? Or add Trout and wait him out?

I like Minor, unless Trout is coming up in the next few weeks, i'd hold off until rumors start coming out about him being called up.

I'd add Norris or Minor whichever you like better. It is a toss up in my opinion.

please help

So who goes? Broxton or Pomeranz? If I drop Broxton, I'm left with 3 RP for 3 slots. I like Pomeranz though.

Being in Toronto I would watch Drabek closely, starting to find his control and has some dangerous stuff.

I do like Minor as well

What about Duffy?
