You could use some speed and obviously an arm. I'd go with Teheran and McLouth (who needs to be rostered....

I personally like Frazier a lot. Off to a slow start but I think he has the most potential the remainder of this year.

The second pickup is more difficult. You need some speed, so that would mean McLouth to me. If you're playing for upside than Simmons although he's been dropped to 8th in the Altanta batting order. I think Simmons could become a .270/.280 type hitter and get reinstalled to the top of the Atl lineup where he'll score a ton of runs and steal a few bags, but he is more of a risk than McLouth.

Please help with mine.
