5 x 5 pitching cats are (W/ERA/WHIP/K/SV) 12 team $255 salary cap

I plan to take one of these pitchers. Jimenez would be a great pick but he is $29, but the fact I could afford 2 guys like Cahill and Marcum for a total of $27 makes me think I should go with best value...

Best value? What do you think? I'm thinking Buchholz is better at $17 than Jimenez at $29.
U. Jimenez $29
C. Buchholz $17
M. Scherzer $23
T. Cahill $12
T. Hudson $18
S. Marcum $15

I don't think you want Bucholz as your staff anchor. Would he be you #1 SP? For that matter, I'd rather have Marcum than Bucholz, especially with a $4 difference. To be honest though, all those $ values sound really high for a mixed draft.

These pitchers are definitely pricey. Having said that, I go Buchholz. Ubaldo is not $29 good. Marcum is a sleeper, but he does not have the upside of Buchholz. Cahill doesn't rack up a ton of K's (for 5x5), and Scherzer for $23 way too high.
