    Rank These Starting Pitchers–Fantasy Baseball? In a Fantasy Baseball 10 Team H2H Mixed Keeper League, I have one open roster spot, & I’m looking to ADD a Starting Pitcher. How would you rank this group of Starting Pitchers from BEST to WORST for the rest of the season? OR Just pick who would be your TOP 5 from this pool of Starting Pitchers — 1 = your favorite or strongest recommendation to 5 = the least favorite recommendation.

    Matt Harrison
    Jake Peavy
    Ivan Nova
    Jarrod Parker
    Philip Humber
    Gavin Floyd
    Juan Nicasio
    Phil Hughes
    Jake Arrieta
    Henderson Alvarez
    Drew Pomeranz
    Bartolo Colon
    Ross Detweiler
    Jonathan Sanchez
    Shelby Miller
    Andy Pettite

    *These are the best SPs from what I’m seeing on my FA list.

    *ALSO Please RANK these Closers (or potential Closer) from BEST to WORST–

    Hector Santiago
    Sean Marshall
    Brett Myers
    Henry Rodriguez
    Alfredo Aceves
    Daniel Bard

    Why do you like the pitchers you chose over the others you excluded from your Top 5? Do you think I should ADD any of these SPs from the FA pool immediately as they will help me moving forward? These are the best Sps I’m seeing on my Waiver Wire to beef up my SP staff & any Thoughts, Ideas, & Opinons are always welcome and appreciated. Thanks!
    *Just RANK your TOP 5 from the above list of SPs. & RANK the small list of Closers. Thanx

      I think so. like all steroid users before they get caught, fans regard them as great, but as soon as we see them for what they really are, they’re not that special anymore. he was a good defensive catcher and a good hitter, but when you realize that he cheated, he’s not that good anymore.

    • Curator says:

      When he agreed to sign with the Detroit Tigers. At that time, he could have gone just about anywhere in baseball, but he picked the Tigers. And the Tigers were TERRIBLE at the time. Once Pudge signed, others started coming here too. He’s a pretty classy guy in my eyes! He’s also a first ballot Hall of Famer!

      One closer won’t do it for you, two might not either. If this is a h2h league I would just throw it and try to get some value out of bell.
