I recently got rid of Fukudome & Milton Bradley for Beltre. I'm pretty happy about it, as Beltre's horrendous start makes him a great buy low candidate. Figure those 25 HRs will come in at some point, and with April already over, he's got one less month to put up his numbers. Figure I'm due for one hell of a hot streak. Anyway, I'm looking for other solid buy low candidate. Any ideas? Would really like a SP or OF, but I also have two utility spots, though Carlos Pena has permanently reserved one of those.

Great avatar. Lester as a buy low -- I would've said Werth a few ddays ago, but he's since busted out.

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.

I had Lester on my team last year and wouldn't have minded picking him up this year, as he was fairly solid last year, especially in the second half, but he went fairly early in the draft, too early for what i thought he was worth (7th round!). I don't have any bats to offer for him, so I'd probably have to give up a SP. I have a ton of RPs, but it's part of my strategy this year. So far it's help keep my ERA nice and low, keep my K's nice and high (also because I have 7 SPs) and allowed me to dominate saves. Haven't seen a great effect on WHIP, but I blame Wainwright for that. We'll see how it works. If nothing else, saves are real tight in my league, so a top closer can fetch a top player before playoffs start. Ok, here's who I have:

SPs: Jair Jurrjens/Jered Weaver/Chris Volstad /Jake Peavy /Adam Wainwright/Edwin Jackson/Justin Verlander

RPs: Joe Nathan/Brian Fuentes/Brian Wilson/Scott Downs/Brandon Morrow

Yeah, I have a few pitchers. I believe Volstad & Jackson are my best sell high candidates, though Jurrjens sweet ERA will balloon soon, making him another option. My best pitchers are having the worst looking numbers. Go figure.

What do ya think it'll take to pull Lester away?

I think Jackson, Volstad or Jar-Jar could get Lester. Try on of those and gauge reaction.
