I account for the fact that Prior WILL be on the DL this year.

Wow you had Tim Hudson really low. I think he's do for a nice rebound year. Not quite what he was back in 01 or 02 but something fairly close to that

If Halladay gets drafted as the 11th starting pitcher in any draft, it's going to be a huge steal for whoever gets him.

I like SiverZ's the best.

I'd personally move up Vazquez into the 5th tier, but I'm a Vazquez fan... I think he'll have his innings and K's this year with around 16 wins.
I was in Los Angeles, and the team was playing in San Diego, but I didn't know it. I had taken LSD at noon. I thought it was an off-day. At 1pm, my girlfriend and trip partner looked at the paper and said, "Dock, you're pitching today!"

Coppermine

You have John Patterson ranked higher than any other rankings I have seen. I'm hopeing to land him as my 3rd or 4th starter this year.

What made you rank him so high?

funny i think patterson is too low. what made him rank him so high??? for lack of better words, how about his sweet ass ERA and high k's....lowry, escobar, cain all too low for my liking as well but i usually take the riskier, more upside type pitchers.


also, maybe this could a new thread entirely, but why are people so high on cliff lee?!?!?!?! he stinks! he just gets wins!

It was hilarious to see the rank of John Patterson on those three lists. First one had him 70th or so, second one 15th or so and the last one 35th. I have him in my keeper, and won't trade him because I think he is HIGHLY undervalued. Have to agree with Snakes Gould here. In the compilation rankings from Ironhead he is around where I think he should be, 20th. Keep talking down about him, though.

Ruminations on rankings. I don't understand most peoples' rankings. Half the time it seems like they are just writing a list from memory, not looking at stats, projecting off of those stats, and they come up with the lists that you saw here. I would need an explanation of... using a combination of projection set X, my own thoughts, and a specific equation, I came up with these rankings, in order to feel comfortable with someone elses rankings from this site (unless it is from one of the very established members). Instead, we get a bunch of names listed in whatever order people feel like.
