Lowry finished strong last year as well, causing myself and a lot of people to expect the same thing you are now. Yet he started weak this year.

Usually the breakout guys would have finished last year off very strong. Or will at least start the year off strong, maybe not be the best pitchers in the league but some candidates that i think could breakout are...

CC Sabathia, Kazmir, Lackey, Lowry, Contreras, Millwood, Westbrook. to name a few.

I still think he'll be a great draft pick next season. He was definitely overhyped after the world series MVP, and then he disappointed.

This year, I was guilty of taking him way too early (5th round ahead of Peavy, Mulder, Smoltz, and Mussina), but I'm still happy with that pick. He's had a good, but still disappointing, season with 15 wins, 3.38 ERA and 166K so far.

I feel like a lot of people think he's having a bad season because of continuing blister problems. I wouldn't be surprised to see him fall in next year's drafts and I'd be thrilled to take a chance on him around where the 2nd tier SPs are getting picked up.

I'm fairly high on kazmir as well for next year and I noticed that some people have already mentioned him. I'm not from Tampa and haven't seen him pitch but it seems like previous posters think that Lou's management style negatively effected Kazmir. Why do you find that to be the case?

That is a great description. By most SP standards he is having a good year but Beckett is one of those pitchers that can take it to the next level I have him as a keeper in one league and signed for $19 for next 3 years in my auction league.

I thought Beckett would step it up this season.

You are prolly right. I do have a tendancy to pick players prior to their breakout year.

If Millwood gets traded, or Cleveland ups its protection, he'll be awesome.
