i don't like max scherzer because he is inconsistent. it's pretty hard to guess when max will have a double digit K performance or completely blow up in your face. i heard somewhere that max can't repeat his delivery. johan doesn't really go deep into games.

peavy, lohse, colon, and lynn are all very hot right now. i'm not sure about lohse. he looks good, but he's still kyle lohse. i would ride colon until he breaks down. don't know much about lynn except that he seems to be pitching really well. and maybe peavy is finally healthy.

i would pick up peavy over max and johan. i would probably pick up colon as he has shown us last year that he can be valuable for at least the first half of the season.

if you want to drop an offensive player, then i'd consider francouer.

Yeah I agree to some extent. First your pitching is pretty decent to where I wouldn't drop Johan or Scherzer. If I had to it would be Johan. Definitely not Scherzer, no way. I would drop a bat and it would definitely be Francouer. I would then either grab Matt Harrison or Jake Peavy...... Can't go wrong there. Don't touch Colon.

I agree with jovanparque. Go with Peavy or Colon while they are hot right now and drop Francoeur. Lynn and Harrison could be good pickups as well in another week if Johan and Scherzer don't show improvement.

Get Peavy if you still can. Drop Francour or Johan.

While your at it, no need for 2 catchers. Try to include one of them in a 2 for 1 trade. Pickup Lynn, then Harrison.
