1) Who would you pick up for a spot start?
2)I could pick up a outfeilder (UTL spot) to put in my line-up instead (Tabata,Kubel,Alvarez,Neil Walker, Gardner, Cuddyer, Lind, Adam Jones)
I'd probably go with Jenmar Gomez. Teams haven't been able to figure him out yet and despite their little streak, Baltimore still sucks. Second choice is Wells, 3rd is Hernandez.
No way I'd roll with Wolf or Mills.
As for the UTL spot. I've been really happy with Tabata: good AVG, SB, R doesn't have much power, but if your set there, he can help you.

I was thinking Gomez too, mostly because of the matchup, but Baltimore has been red hot since the coaching change.
- I was thinking of picking up Tabata too, I was just looking for a player who would help my AVG and maybe give me a run of two.
Thanks for the help
I would not go near any of the starters you listed. If you really want to pick up an extra outfielder, I'd go with Walker (who, by the way, is not an outfielder.... neither is Alvarez), Lind or Gardner (depending on whether you need avg, rbi, sb or whatever.
