Which pitchers to pickup?

I am in a 7 team fantasy baseball league. My pitching is pretty bad. I can work out trades for pitchers, but I would rather pickup some pitchers. Don't say players that almost every laegue has picked up. I'm talking about pitchers that most people STILL dont know about OR pitchers doing okay and are going to rise a lot (of course, other people should still not know about them)

My batting is pretty solid. Theyre the reason why im in second, and when Arod is off the DL and in good form, im that much better. If someone were to tell me pickups for batters, they have to be ones that will be top 50 ranked.

    I'm assuming that names like Max Scherzer, Shawn Hill and Gavin Floyd are already gone in your league, so if I were you, I would start looking for injured pitchers who are on their way back and try to make trades for them. Maybe Harden or Smoltz.

    Without seeing your situation, it's pretty tough to come up with names. Go to your Yahoo fantasy league and click on available pitchers, then sort them by rank. Come back with a list and we can help you better.

    without knowing who is on your waiver wire, the best advice i can give you is to go to the espn fantasy baseball page and click on the link with the top 340 players and then switch it to starting pitchers or relief pitchers and it should show you the top ranked.
