-- The Angels have clinched and they are slowing their starters down now, can we trust them in crunch time?
-- It is like this with all teams this time of year? Some teams have six-man rotations (Angels, Pirates), some have four-man rotations (Mets). It is a case-by-case basis.
-- Another contender made a switch with their No. 5 man, Max Scherzer is in for Yusmerio Petit.
-- And about closers ... Chris Carpenter is now closing games for the Cardinals, do we trust him at this point?

-- There are no two-start pitchers. What do we do to set our lineups for the short Fantasy Week 16 (July 17-20)
-- Rich Harden dealt to Cubs, CC Sabathia dealt to Brewers ... which pitcher will have a bigger impact in the second half?

I am biased, but the most important piece of content to consume every week -- outside of the pitching planner and daily roster trends and most-viewed players, of course -- is the Prospect Report every Thursday.
If you followed that story, you would have had Max Scherzer on your roster right now and feeling real cool. This week we hype him and Adenhart as impact starting pitcher call-ups on top contenders, but you might want to know a few names I think have to be stashed weeks in advance.
The up arrows tend to outline them, but here are some names you will want to be more proactive on. We will call it the On the Verge we used to have in the report a year ago:
Good luck with your prospect fliers and remember the week-plus before June is a huge time for prospect movement.
