Buy low pitchers?

I wouldnt give any thing more than a 4th or borderline 3rd fantasy OF for him, but K. Escobar.

He has avoided being shut down yet again........, and is due to make a rehab start.

If he looks ok is his next rehab start he is definitely worth grabbing off the FA pool.

In limited duty he has still managed to put up 47K's - 17BBI in 40.7 INN.

Brian Lawrence wont help much in K's much but he has maintained fine control long enough I trust him at the back of my rotation as he has only walked 22 batters in 95.2 INN on the year. Over the past month although he still has a bad ERA on the year his WHIP has dropped significantly as he has been giving up less hits.

Wade Miller is a yearly candidate to have a strong 2nd half. He probably wont ever have his 2001&02 2nd halves again so long as he faces off against the potent AL east, but as he regains full strength he should perform much better than lately.

I like Lilly too. He has looked good as of late, and he has generally pitched much better after the All Star break.

Lilly's still on my waivers... Think he's worth grabbing after his last two games?

And what makes you think Pineiro will turn it around?

Both have been pitching well lately and both are guys with good track records of being productive MLB pitchers. They aren't old or over-the-hill, either. I don't expect them to be studs. But I do think they can be productive and help you.

i also think lilly and pineiro are both good pitchers to go after right now. actually they are prolly still on the WW. lilly was awful and i don't believe anyone kept him when he was getting rocked every outing in the beginning of the season. pineiro might also be on the WW cuz he was demoted at one point this season...if they are still out there, i think they are good pick ups, but i prolly wouldn't trade for them.

buy low pitchers...yeah...odalis could be one...maybe even rich harden, but you prolly should have done it last week.

i think tim hudson could be a good buy low right now.

I second R. Hernadez from KC. Just don't start him against big offenses yet until he proves himself. He has been dominate against the trash.

David Wells has been off and on, but looked great last game.

Jessie Foppert was a stud prospect a few years ago before an injury. in two starts this season he has given up some runs. Doesn't look great yet, but someone to keep an eye on.

I don't remember if you just looking for SP, but Keith Foulke is a candidate to turn it around. Raphy Soriano should be off the DL soon. They were considering moving him to the rotation before the injuy. May still be in the plans.

Wells didn't look great his last time out. He was actually lucky to get to the fifth inning. I traded him last week and got Cliff Politte

I think RJ and Huddy are the best buy lows right now. The first depends on how the owner in your league reacted to last time's shelling.

I realize this is the wrong forum, but it does apply to getting a buy low pitcher. How little could I attempt to give up in trying to accquire RJ?

Here's my roster...
10 Team - Roto - 7x7 (hits, walks, losses, complete games as extra categories)

C- Jorge Posada
1B- Mark Teixera
2B- Jeff Kent
3B- Eric Chavez
SS- Cesar Izturis
OF- Vladimir Guerrero
OF- Johnny Damon
OF- Gary Sheffield
Utl- Jose Guillen
Utl- Lance Berkman
Utl- Reggie Sanders
B- Ryan Klesko
B- Willie Tavarez
B- Orlando Cabrera

SP- Jason Schmidt
SP- AJ Burnett
SP- Javier Vazquez
SP- Brett Myers
SP- Matt Morris
SP- Chris Capuano
RP- Miguel Batista
RP- Guillermo Mota
RP- Chris Hammond
RP- Authur Rhodes
RP- Justin Duchscherer
DL- Brandon Lyon
DL- Kelvim Escobar

I'm thinking, because of my loaded outfield, I can deal possibly Jose Guillen and one of my SPs. Which one would be adequate, without insulting the other manager.

I'm thinking Morris, Capuano or Brett Myers. I don't think he'd be interested in Capuano, possibly one of the other two. Which one should I offer?

After watching Wells pitch against Cle I would have absolutely no reservations dropping him. I view him as a good spot starter at this point.

Jeff Weaver who has looked like he did last year after a rough first quarter to the season.

Greg Maddux should have better ratios.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position
