With Lima on the DL I am looking for a decent replacement ..

Primarily looking for k's but also good run support, etc.

Here are the list of available pitchers

Jimmy Gobble

Brad Radke (who will be pitching twice this week)
Dan Haren
Mike Hampton
Oliver Perez
Al Lieter
V. Zambrano (TB )
Adam Eaton
R. Lopez

Who would you choose?

Out of that list I would go with Hampton. His last few games he has really pitched well and the Braves are on an offensive tear right now.

I'd go with Radke. He's been pitching much better the last few weeks than his season line shows, and his two starts are against Baltimore, which is at best an average offense, and Detroit, so should be good to go for this week.

I didn't see Gobble on your list .. you kinda hid him near the top.
Grab Gobble. :-)

Worth a pickup? Yes, and nab him now if you're in a keeper league. Gobble's one of the brightest pitching prospects in the game, and he could be up for good if he impresses Royals brass. He'll be inserted in the rotation immediately, and a good KC team should put him in position to win plenty of ball games. You probably already missed out on Rich Harden - don't miss out on Gobble.
