1) No Wade Miller on this list?!

2) Hudson should be higher if we're talking real-life. If you wanna knock him down to 10th in fantasy for K's, that's fine.

3) Zito needs to be way higher than that... I know he's been in a slump... but below Weaver and Hampton?

No Wade Miller? Ummm after complete arm reconstruction and not pitching for a year he's a top 60 pitcher just like that? I don't think so...

John Thomson also belongs on this list, maybe Adam Eaton.

I could have sworn Thomson was on there. I agree with Marquis also. As for Hudson, this is a fantasy board, and the list geared towards fantasy players.

As for Zito, how high are you proposing he go? I'm hestitant to put a guy who allowed 4 or more runs in a start 17 times last year, and in this year (which was supposed to be his bounceback year), allowed 4 or more runs in 4 of his 6 starts.

Miller should be top 25 if he comes back fully healthy.

You can't just say he sucks because he was hurt. Consider that for 768 career IP his ERA is 3.8 with a .244 BAA and 7.7 K/9, and he's only 28 years old.

I'd take Beckett and Burnett over Prior, Schilling, Oswalt and maybe even Hudson. Kerry Wood is NOT a top 20 pitcher.

i reckon wood needs to be dropped, but i think beckett and burnett need 3-4 more starts to prove that they are worthy of a 5-10ish ranking.

as for woods ranking, i couldnt drop him lower than 22nd, becuase i feel like if someone said they would give wood for anyone below that spot, i think most owners would take wood.
