Hasn't had a post since Feb. 26th and the majority of all drafts are coming up in the next week or two.

Anyone have anybody to add?

Sheets
Liriano
Ervin Santana
Hughes

A lot of injury risks but I don't mind taking the risk for how late you're getting them. I know it's not smart to go by ST stats, but Liriano and Ervin have both looked really solid. I picked up Ervin in 2008 because of how great he looked in ST, and it worked out..

In terms of very late-round fliers, there's nothing wrong with investing in a guy like Gio Gonzalez. You will hate his WHIP, and he's prone to the big inning, but the K rate, favorable ballpark, and relative youth/upside is worth chasing. I don't think he figures it all out this year though... he's someone you'd rather use in a 2-start week against offensively inferior opponents than roster and start for an entire season.

Marcum/Duchscherer/Dice-K I like allot. Both going undrafted for the most part.

Have at it

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

I could be eating crow (I doubt it), but I absolutely won't touch Harang anymore. I know, he's been unlucky with run support the past few years, he has a whack BABIP... but the bum has just burned me for two straight seasons now. I won't chase his 200K potential at the cost of his terrible WHIP. I don't know what was in the Cincy water in 06 and 07, but I doubt it ever comes back again.
