Wandy - 19th throw him out and keep Papi instead.
I'd much rather have a big bat than a mid rotation arm, which can EASILY be replaced. How many 280/32/100 bats can you keep that late?
For your other selection Bard is definitely the best value by far.
Though I'm not in love with Wandy (and it's his last year of being able to be kept), he has some nice value in our league. People keep pitchers. Of the top SP: Halladay, Greinke, JJ, Lee, Lester, Price, Weaver, Hanson, Latos will all be kept...and those are only the top arms. (Scott 'Freaking' Baker has been drafted in the 7th round the past two years.)
Liriano in the 5th is borderline IMO, but that is where he'll get taken, if not slightly before due to above...now Wandy in the 19th is acceptable. I can post #4/#5 numbers from him I think.
It is a weekly lineup league so playing Papi is always an adventure, depending on R/L matchups. Add in the DH only option and he is frustrating. I think he is definitely a great value...something I'll need to think more about. I've considered him over Bard, but haven't been able to pull the trigger yet.
