two that i think you should keep an eye on especially in really deep leagues at least are Scott Olsen from the marlins and Soler from the mets. Olsen has had 3 very nice starts in a row including one @colorado. Almost a 2 to 1 K/BB rate. I have had him in a deeep 13 league NL only league all year and he has taken his lumps at times but in that deep of a league i have never even considered dropping him. Recently i even went and picked him up in my mixed league. He reminds me of a young 'on the verge' Brett myers.

Soler's #'s are almost complete opposite of Olsens. He has a nice Era and whip but the K's and BB's are much less impressive.

Like i said these are mostly for rather deep leagues but even in not so deep leagues i would keep an eye on Olsen.

I want to throw Cain in there too.

Are Young and Lowry to old to throw in the mix?

I have Cain as my 5th starter right now with Snell lingering on the waiver wire, should I drop Cain for Snell, or stick with Cain?

i'm definitely a fan of verlander and papelbon. verlander's been a lot more consistent and a lot better than i expected him to be when i picked him up from free agency, although i'm waiting to see what happens when teams start seeing him more. as a giants fan (and as someone who drafted matt cain, only to drop him later), i really wish cain had been better thus far, but there's still hope.
