Pitchers for 4/8

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

I go by strength of lineup. Norris would not be up there for me, personally, nor would Zambrano. I'd hedge towards:

Danks (how is this guy on the FA?), Richard, Pavano, Dickey, Carrasco

How many do you need/grabbing?

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.

I'd move Dickey up in the hierarchy but if you can only choose one, Danks is the guy.
