Nice list. Good to compare my staffs against.

One thing. Since you based this list on 12 teams x 5 starters each, you should have broken it up by 12's, e.g. 1-12, 13-24, etc. That's how I like to do it during draft time and makes more sense. 5 groups of 12.

makes sense, ill get to changing it. what i'm gearing injured players on the list towards is their levels of production when they return. i.e. wood's value is much higher in h2h than roto, because you lose production from him in roto, while all that matters in h2h is the playoffs.

i also agree that i'm a bit too high on the quick start guys, but i believe most of them warrant a spot on the list.

J. Garland

plus I don't like Westbrook, Chen or Moyer all that much.

There are others I would move up or down a couple spots but these seemed to be the worst.


The way i'm thinking about my list is: who would I drop to take a chance on Myers, Patterson, Garland, etc. The guys below them are the ones that i would drop. I agree a few were too high though, and they were dropped.

Brandon Webb had better numbers than Willis the year Dontrelle won Rookie of the Year.
Both struggled last year.
Both are off to great starts this year.
Both belong around the place where Webb is now (32, I believe) with a slight edge for Willis.

Well obviously if Halladay is only 14th we're not talking about real life.

Wouldn't it be funny to see Roy Oswalt try to pitch in the AL East? He'd get absolutely roasted.

Thank god, someone who remembers that Webb actually had a better year. If it wasn't for idiots like Gammons talking up Willis for his "flare", Webb would have been ROTY.

Call me crazy, but I think a healthy Penny is better than #51. Certainly not some 20 spots below Lowe. Unless of course you're expecting him to go back to the DL.

Oswalt would be fine in any league including the AL East. He throws 95+ with great command.

The one I'd change is Mussina, expecially if you're talking about the future, his velocity is down and he's very inconsistent.

Also Eric Bedard will be in everybody's top 30 by the end of this year.

If you think that about Oswalt, I don't even know where to start. I think you need to do a reality check, first of all.

Lets see... he pitches in a hitters park. He also is in the same division as the Cards and Wrigley Field. And then there is the fact he probably has some of the nastiest stuff in the league.
