Tell me what you think about J. Garland and J. Lieber.

I like Leiber. He obviously has a solid offense to back him up. I know he has been out for like two years now, but he's well rested right, lol. But seriously, I hear some guys throw harder than they ever have when they come back. I don't know if that is the case with him, but I know he has been pretty effective thus far. He is a guy that you can get cheap and will give you decent results.

I don't know much about Garland, sorry.

I also like Lieber. He has great stuff and is throwing harder than ever. I think he is good to have in a rotation. He had a couple of shaky starts, but he is still an overall great pitcher. I also am not familar with Garland.

Both have solid offenses, but I like Lieber better. Why, can't really say. But he gets my vote.

Lieber's pitching on a monster offensive team with a good pen behind him. Should be good for plenty of wins. He's not likely to deliver anything beyond ordinary in the other categories, but the wins alone make him useful.

Garland is strictly deep league fodder. Not the worst guy on the planet, but he's sure nothing special.

I like Lieber better than Garland. He is fully recovered from his surgery and he has excellent control. I wouldn't be suprized to see him win 15+ games by season's end.

Hmmm... a 0.90 WHIP with 2 Walks in 35.2 Innings with 4 Wins speaks for itself... :*)

Also, I think he only can get better and he had just one bad start so far back in Seattle.

Take him, I have him too! B-)

Lieber, reasos listed above

Garland has taken some steps this season but he still allows too many hits. An ok number 4 starter at best
