I'd sit tight right now, I don't see a whole lot of value in either Cain or Blanks at the current moment.

Help with mine please? viewtopic.php?f=26&t=462616

Griffin's FIP and xFIP are north of 4, but he still has a nice WHIP and strikes a decent amount of guys. He's not amazing, but I think you'd want to stick with the SP, at least until Peavy or Pineda figures out their rehab / injuries. If they both putz out, maybe you'd need the extra arm around for the playoffs.

Your pitching isn't great so I'd hold onto Griffin. Blanks is a fun add but he isn't that special. Cain just doesn't do anything particularly well, and a 10 HR 15 SB outfielder just doesn't do much for a fantasy team.
