I'm dropping Lyon to pick up Rodney (he just cleared waivers... someone dropped him the day he was named the closer) and I'd like to pick up a SP to put on my DL at the same time. Would you rather have Smoltz or Kelvim Escobar for the DL spot?

I'm not totally sure of Smoltz status at the moment, but I'd like to have Escobar in my DL spot. He's ahead of schedule and throwing in the mid 90's. Plus he's got a rotation spot just waiting for him. Sounds like he could be in a game in May.

Thanks for your reply!

How about Devine for the DL spot? Could you rank the three pitchers (Smoltz, Escobar and Devine) in order of preference as a DL stashee?

I'm no pert or anything, so you may want to wait for Grey. Personally, I guess I would rank them Smoltz then Esco. Esco back by the start of May and Smoltz probably at the end. They are both great guys to have that when healthy and pitching, are effective and useful :).
Devine...it don't sound good mon. The team put him on the 60 day dl and he hasn't even seen Andrews yet. I don't know if that means anything, guess I'm just looking to far into that. If Devine were to come back in May I don't think the A's would immediately throw him in the fire.
If it were me, I would hang onto the SP.

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.

Thanks Grey! Just grabbed Escobar... If Escobar comes back late April/early May as he's supposed, I might just pick up Smoltz then to fill my DL spot if he's still available...
