Jimenez
Nolasco

Yusmeirio Petit


I also don't want to hurt my Era are a or whip which are two areas that I dominate. But it is real hard to get a starter at this point. It is a chance to get one or maybe it's better just to stay with what I have. I'm not sure Crawford needs to be on my roster although I like the option of having a speedster around if I need to This is an extremely tight and competitive league with 18 teamsilton. Nd jerks is available that was another option. This is an extremely tight and competitive league with 18k themes

I'd take Petit over any of them, he's not guaranteed another start after this one but he's pitched well in relief so far so he's worth a look.

do you agree that Crawford is not going to help me on my team to cut him would it be a mistake?

one good start can push me into second place for that coveted bye. Garza is coming back soon so I'm not that worried if pet it needs to be cut

Crawford is too injury prone, I would never have him on any of my teams to be honest unless it was a last resort, there are always better guys who you can take off the wire or just ride the hotstreak of some guys.

NOT REALLY MUCH...THOUGHT DIRKS MIGHT BE BEST
even though my pitching is better than my hitting , I think I need help in pitching this week due to who I am playing and what my pitchers have done this week so far

Lohse is fine. Crawford is worthless. If you are worried about your ratios, none of those pitcher's should be risked. If you are looking for best available bat and assuming someone has already scooped up Soler, I would probably grab Morales or Infante though none of those guysis likely to help much at all.
