Young AL Guns?

Postby steve_0710 » Thu Mar 10, 2005 9:10 am

What are your thoughts on some of the young AL guns? Kazmir? R. Rodriquez, Blanton? Madritsch? others?

i like madritsch a lot... i think that he could have a real breakout year this year for seattle, getting more wins with the better lineup now... i think that if kazmir is as good as advertised, that he will have a decent year, but i would wait on all these guys except madritsch... look for him late in the draft.

Ummm Madritsch is 29, not exactly a young gun.

I would take a late flyer on Kazmir. Blanton next year.

Erik Bedard, Brandon League, Denny Bautista, Jesse Crain, Wil Ledezma, Houston Street, David Bush, Matt Riley, Felix Hernandez (big stud, but may be in minors a lil longer), Dewon Brazelton. All I can think of right now.

Ricardo Rodriguez looked good last year before injury and is having a strong spring training. Hes not super-young but looks impressive (especially when he pitches after Chan Ho).

Of all those players mentioned, I must say Ricardo Rodriguez and Joe Blanton have the best chance of making a great addition to a fantasy team. And if you play MLB's salary cap, Rodriguez is going real cheap.

Yea, Felix Hernandez is supposed to be great. Hernandez is the world's best pitching prospect according to Baseball America. He is not likely to get a job this spring because of his age (18), so he is ticketed to be on the Triple-A waiting list.
