I need to pick the top 2 of the following 4 pitchers and rank them for 5x5 Roto purposes:

Westbrook
Leiter
Woody Williams
Orlando Hernandez


Opinions as to the rankings?

Jake Westbrook - bad K/9 rate, bad command, good hr/9 rate
Woody Williams - Avg k/9 rate, avg command, good hr/9 rate
Al Leiter - bad bb/9, bad k/9, bad command, good hr/9 rate
El Duque - bad bb/9, good k/9 rate, average command, bad hr/9

This is how they are on my board. I listed some of the characteristics that I think are important. Someone in an earlier post talked about picking El Duque up for a short stint, becaue you know his back will go out at sometime. If you are looking for a short fix, that might be the way to go.

OK, let's look at it from the other direction...who is the obvious worst? The way I look at it, it is Leiter and his 6 IP walk-fests. Isn't this guy like Ishii now for all intents and purposes?

El Duque is the one everyone seems to have varying degrees of negatiity towards. Not completely sure as to why outside of the obvious injury waiting to happen wrt him.

Woody...was not particularly in a hitter's paradise last season either. Also an injury risk now to a certain degree. Most likely to be OK/decent though but with less upside, imo.


Westbrook...I have no idea what to believe with this guy. Really is making it difficult to decide.

This is how I have them as well. But Woody is well above the rest in my opinion. He is in SD, that park don't hurt no pitchers.

So why would El Duque be worse an option than Leiter though? Or is it the injury concerns. Leiter is barely serviceable as a fantasy 6th.
