I would bench Fernandez and Moore, unless you need the extra start from Moore.
Wheeler is intriging and considering the recent call ups over the past calendar year, Zack should produce immediately, I would start him right away, especially with those 2 starts. Moore has 2 tough lineups to go against, could hurt you.

Wins is a tight category. Seven wins separates 11th place from 3rd place. So I'm going to gamble with Moore. Benched Fernandez in favor of Wheeler and benched Jason Grilli (been shaky these past couple outings, plus I'm a solid second in saves) in favor of Miller.

Thanks for your advise! ;-D

I also have Miller, JZimm and Grienke. The first 2 have been great... hoping Miller can last the season and Grienke gets a little more consistent ;-D
