Free Agent Pitching

Postby washkow » Mon Apr 26, 2010 10:05 am

I am in a 10-team 6x6 H2H league (extra categories are OPS and K/9) and am looking to pick up a nice little pitcherooni to take the pressure off of me having to slot in hitters every day. I am planning on dropping Brett Gardner and wanted your thoughts on which pitcher to pick up. The current availables who are interesting to the me are:
-Doug Fister
-Jamie Garcia
-Mat Latos
and others of approximately the same caliber. The league is limited in the number of pick-ups you can have, so any pickup will be 2% of my total budget, so if there are no good options, then I will just leave my team as is. My starting pitching is pretty good (Wainwright, Slowey, YoGa, CC, and Lilly), so I don't know that I need ace pitchers as much as guys who get K's, but after dropping Big Z, I noticed that I had more problems with my pitching this last week.
Any thoughts?
thanks!

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.

Flip a coin for Garcia or Latos.
