    Don’t know much about this LeBlanc kid. Do you think he’s for real? Lilly has been underrated for the past few years. Pettitte is on a mission. I’m still not a believer in Carmona. DeJesus is usually among the league-leaders in being added / dropped during the course of my fantasy league’s season. Zito may yet earn some of that huge contract of his. Nice tips, Bill

    I certainly like where LeBlanc calls home for starters. In a brief stint with the club last year he was 3-1 with a 3.69 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He’s not an elite prospect though so I would only use him in a pinch at this point.

    Pettitte has been great. I’d use Carmona if the matchup was right.

    DeJesus should be owned in deep leagues, but he is streaky.

    Zito has been a beast.
