Personally, I'd go for Myers. I have him on my team. He's just too talented to not get better results. Last night, he pitched well, so hopefully it will be a trend.

I'd definitely go with Myers, long track record there.

I was looking for a little more specific insight here. I'm not sure who to drop and who to claim. As you can tell from the FA's available, the players are pretty intelligent and don't leave much talent on the wire.

Should I cut Snell for Myers?

Should I cut Smith for Lilly?

Should I drop Carlos Gomez for someone?

Any help appreciated.

I'd say cut Snell for Myers. Myers production is alot better thne Snell so far.

I'm thinking of cutting Gomez for Lilly, and cutting Snell for Myers. What do you guys think?

Closer wise I'm covdered. I have Izzy and Fuentes, both good for a lot of saves, and Smoltz coming off the DL,arguabley the best closer of his time. However, now i'm hurting for Starting Pitching. Damn you smoltz.

I like Myers the most on that list. However, I don't know who to drop. I guess Smith, as he is unproven, or Snell. However, I wouldn;t drop Gomez as I don't see an overwhelming amount of speed on your team. Thanks for helping me out.

Edit:
I would cut Gomez for Myers. Snell is still pretty electric in my book and should turn things around. If you do decide to cut Snell, I'd go with Hochevar...he has the best chance to break out this year of the bunch

drop gomez for myers.... Then try to trade Hafner for another solid sp or plug him in over Dye.... Maybe trade utley for a killing when Kendrick comes off the DL...
