Waiver Wire Pitchers



The following pitchers are rostered in the infamous Blog Wars league, but are owned in less than 60% of Yahoo! leagues. The top seven or so SP should be rostered in standard public leagues; the rest are for deeper leagues. I have them loosely ranked, w/ rough projections I made (about 6-8 weeks ago) for K/9, WHIP, ERA
