I think I'd still have to go with Garcia over Holland right now in most of my leagues, though with these guys on the waiver this might be a small enough league that you could take a hot Holland ride him and pick up Garcia later. Can't go wrong with either of those two and I think at the end of the year their more likely to have better numbers than the other guys. Also should have more trade value if they have a good 1 month or 2 run than Dempster or Colon, who most people would still be waiting for the bottom to fall out.

Holland is the easy pick for me. Garcia should also be owned, but you can't pick up both, can you?
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Yeah good thought. Who's on your team? Maybe there's someone else and you could get both.

>> Why choose 1. Drop Jimenez and stream all of them. How many team league is this? 8?

9. That might be a good idea. We're never going to hit the 1400 innings cap anyway. (4 SP, 3 RP)

I would kill to have this kind of selection.

I'd have to go with Holland. He's tied to a great offense, he's going to win a good number of games, and he's shown he's capable of getting the K's. He's a former top prospect, and I believe he's 26 or 27 this year. He was on of my top sleepers this year and he's definitely gotten off to a good start.

I'd definitely keep an eye on the other guys too, because Garcia and Dempster would also be high quality pickups

OK, I grabbed Holland today after streaming the Ubaldo spot into Vogelsong and Lohse. Now I'm going to stream the Billingsley spot, starting with Peavy tomorrow.

I really need ERA help and we don't count wins, so hopefully Holland delivers on that despite the ballpark.
