I'll add Gavin Floyd to the list. It was just a year ago that he was a popular sleeper type pick. Had some health issues but seems to be ok. He doesn't have a ton of upside but meets the 3 criteria Ender pointed out. In deeper leagues could be very serviceable.

Grab Bud Norris for $1 now, and hope that the trade talks with the Cards and other teams come to fruition.

There are injury concerns and he does walk a few too many batters but that is why he's a $1. Cashner had a K rate north of 10 last year in a small sample (46IP) of mostly relief appearances. He also routinely posts a GB rate north of 50%. SD loves him as their 5th starter and while he may not be good to go for opening day (had to get over some hunting accident where he cut himself on the hand with a knife in December) he should be eased into the rotation by mid April. Did I mention he throws 100 and plays half his games at Petco? Buy it now at $1...

I still don't buy him as a SP. He has bullpen written all over him.

Hisashi Iwakuma. His splits during his trial as a starter last year were sneaky good...7.39 K/9, 2.65 BB/9, 50%+ GB. Pitching in SafeCo as always is an obvious plus.

Cory Luebke is also a cheap stash favorite of mine.
J.A. Happ
Dillon Gee

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.
