Penny and Odalis on LAD. Although with how well Penny's pitching, it's not a great idea to grab him unless you already have him.

I've heard some great things about this guy. Haven't heard anything about him moving into the rotation, though. You think he gets into the rotation this season? I've been eying him for a little bit but don't really need another MR.

B. McCarthy (I'm thinking he joins the rotation)
B. Bannister (Maybe this is the season Atl falls off and the mets offense looks really good)
J. Verlander
F. Liriano
M. Cain

Just out of curiousity, who do you think McCarthy will replace in the rotation?

Jon Garland I would imagine.

T. Ohka

He won't be an ace or anything but I expect a high 3's era with a 1.29'ish whip. In deep leagues he could be an excellent play that isn't on many people's radar due to a few off years. If you look at his k/ip and k/bb ratios they were right back to where they were in 2002/2003 when he came into Mil last year.
