Neck and neck, and I need to pick 2 of Garcia, Vogelsong, and Cole. I know whoever I sit will throw a CGSO. Looking for QS and W. Going with Garcia and Vogelsong, and sitting Cole, despite thinking he should be able to beat Nuno and the Yankees. He's been HR happy and I don't trust him in the clown ballpark. I'm sure he'll throw a no hitter from my bench.

Chris Owings is red hot right now. I think he's a potential top 10 SS going forward. Also, I could see Wong putting together a nice season now that he's back, especially if he keeps hitting second.

I like Braun.

Would've won my week had I started Cole instead of Garcia yesterday. !+)

Yikes. It depends if Ray's destined to start or be in the bullpen (or spend the year in the minors). He's scheduled to start this Thursday, but threw 2/3 IP of relief just yesterday. Duffy could be figuring it out, but again, up until two weeks ago, was pitching in relief. Wheeler has been bad, but his peripherals suggest some poor luck as well. Poor luck is perpetuated by a 4+ BB/9, so he isn't exactly helping himself. Still, with that home park, and no real powerhouse offenses in the division, I'd probably go Wheeler, but wouldn't be shocked to see him be the worst of the 3 either, if the other two start for the remainder of the season.
