Patterson is the only one I'd seriously consider. Even then, he'd be on a short leash.

I'd take Redman first, then Patterson. The other two I'd stay far away from.

Patterson is the only one I see with real "upside". Redman's upside is about his 2003 numbers at best. Johnson will go out and throw a gem now and then, and the rest of the year get shelled. Don't even try to predict when he's going to pitch well, and steer clear of him.

Wasn't familiar with Halsey. Rotoworld had this to say:
"Halsey won't always get to face the Rockies outside of Coors, so don't get too excited about this. He'll probably be a decent fifth starter and he might have a little value in NL-only leagues, but his upside is pretty limited."

I’d have to agree. Patterson is the only one I would recommend. But I’d pick him up after his outing tomorrow if he does great. He has the bats to protect him as the Nats are on an insane tear these days. I already have him and he’s done me good – so far….
