I think he's a good pitcher but I voted overrated because I think that his head has never allowed him to live up to his bodies potential.

Right now overrated but he has a 100 MPH fastball which no one can teach you how to throw and great breaking balls.

If he can learn to mix in his soft stuff once in a while he will be well worth the money he is commanding. That could happen as soon as 06.

I agree completely, his stuff is some of the best in the bigs when he is on. But basically all pitchers imo have been overvalued the last 2 years in the free agent market and getting more then they were worth in most cases.

Both of these look dead on to me. I believe if he can go somewhere and be healthy he can become a great pitcher.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

He's a very good pitcher, I seem underrated by a lot of people in fantasy baseball and on talk shows, etc.

But I think will be very overrated on the market this year but that is just because there are so few pitchers out there obviously, so of course he's going to be overrated and get a contract more than he's worth. Not saying he's a bad pitcher though. IMO He's a top 15 and was last year too if you took away that last month.
