Top pitcher in the 2nd half...

Well.. saying that Johan WILL BE a top 5 pitcher in the 2nd half means that he isn't one now.. which going by rotochamps projections, he already is. Only downside to Santana's game right now is the 3.32 ERA, and I'll gurantee it goes down. He doesn't walk anyone, strikes out a ton of guys, and his WHIP is under 1.00. His ERA could be under 2 for the 2nd half..
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

not that there's ANY Real evidence of it thus far this year... but Wade Miller has always been a strong 2nd half guy. I'm really hoping that he is again this year.

I like Sheets a lot to have a big time second half. Oliver Perez also comes to mind. For some reason, I like Smoltz to have a big second half as well.

I also like Brad Penny to be very solid, and could be had at a relatively cheap price.

I tend to think Lilly is better than he has shown thus far.

Last year post all star break he threw 104 innings with a miniscule era of 1.21 with 129Ks. In this time he 13-0 with an opposing batting average of just .154. While Santana may be the dominating 2nd half pitcher, who else may we look for strong second halves? Like Santana, I see strong post all star stats from studs such as Sheets and Prior. Less owned pitchers such as Jose Contreras, Ted Lilly, and John Thomson should see stong second halves as well. Any other thoughts on pitchers that should see nice increases in numbers after the all-star break?

I'm ok with most of these but give me 1 good reason that makes you think Ted Lilly should see a strong second half.

Yeah, he seems to be pouting too much lately to put together a good second half.

Man, I'm grumpy this morning. :-?
