He's proven to be just above a .500 pitcher the past few years, and I think that unless the A's make a dramatic offensive upgrade, you can figure on him being roughly the same again.

I'd say: 15-12, 220 IP, 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 165 K's.......

Pretty decent. I'm targeting him in the middle rounds and hoping my league-mates have grown cold on him.......

I agree, with no major offensive weapons to produce run support, Zito is gonna be a solid pitcher with mediocre wins.

I'd wait to see how the offseason develops before predicting mediocrity for Zito. He really figured it out last year after adding the slider and such and getting confidence in his pitches and himself. He had a very nice second half and if the A's get a slugger in the offseason, I think he'll do very well. I'm not necessarily predicting a return to 2002, but I think he'll be a good number 2 pitcher on all but the shallowest fantasy staffs next year.

All of which is assuming they don't trade him FOR that hitting...

With all of the A's young pitching waiting in the wings I would bet that they do trade him for a bat.

Reasonable numbers, and that is roughly where I'd expect him to picth next year.

He's a good roto guy because at the end of the year he'll have his typically 3-4ish starter-typeline, but I wouldn't want him in H2H unless I really liked the matchup because he has a tendency to blow up sometimes, especially early on and against the better hitting teams (mainly TEX).
