I would pick up McDonald and Volquez if your focus is on pitching. However, I only see Frieri as the drop to make. The guys on the wire are interchangeable with some of your starters, but I can't make a case that any of them are better than the ones you have now in terms of talent at this point.

I'd definitely drop Frieri for JMac. He's shown he's got some filthy stuff, and should immediately help your fantasy starting staff. Also, It's getting pretty close to the point where dropping Luebke is an option. I know he won't clear up a roster spot, but it's not looking good for him, In addition, gotta drop Ramos now. Torn ACL. Might have to add a catcher instead though.

help?
