Take the risk? It's at Pittsburgh, and I got Bay and LaRoche in my line-up for the day. I figure if he gets blown out of water at least some of it may go to my line-up.

Really I picked him up because I need to stream some starters for the rest of the week for Ks - I'm way behind. Is Hensley a strike-out pitcher? If he can sustain a 3.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP with 5-7 Ks - the win would just be a bonus really.

If you really need him, maybe you get those numbers, but I wouldn't start him.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

His Major League career K/9 is 5.69. If he throws 6 innings, he's likely to get 3-4 k's. 53% of his outs are GB outs. http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?pl ... position=P
