Holland
Ogando
Rosenthal

Ogando. He has had good stuff for a couple years now.

Please help with mine? http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=454917

Seems you do not have any closers. I would take Reed unless you think he will be there next round? Also if you want to stick with grabbing a SP I would take Hellickson over any of them. He is young will likely keep his ERA below 3.50 although his k/9 last year was only 6.31 he is probably the safest bet to be in the rotation all year unless he gets hurt.

I think Ogando could be a nice pickup. There's some risk, but nice upside too.

I would look to Buchholz, Hellickson, Minor, Romero, Rosenthal in that order over the next few rounds.

Seems I'm always against the norm in these posts, but I really like Hellickson. He's not a blow you away type, but he gets quality starts and is a very effective pitcher. But between your two, I like Minor over Ogando.

I personally like what I saw from Minor in the 2nd half of last year and would make him my pick.
