Lester or Haren?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

You don't have either of them in your sig to know the difference in contract price/years.

Lester should net you more K's so he's probably the right choice in a vacuum.

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.
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.

Sorry - my sig is for a different league.

Neither of them are from an auction league.

That's as good a reason as any. They are so close in ability but Lester is younger.

Haren due to consistency. I wouldn't worry about age in this instance (see Cliff Lee).
12-teamer, H2H, points, 4 keepers.
Hitters: +1 single, +2 dbl, +3 trpl, +4 HR, +1 RBI, +1 run, +1 BB/HBP, -1 K, +2 SB, -1 CS
Pitchers: +1.5 IP, +1 K, -1 BB/HBP, +5 W, -3 L, +4 S, -2 BS, +3 CG, +10 shutout
Start one player at each position + utility, 4 SPs, 2 RPs. 8 reserves.
