What round should he go in. Or what, rather, would be the average round area that he is selected in? rds 5-7?

In a 12-team league, more like the 3rd round.

Dammit. I was hoping to get him later than that. Thanx.

5-7 is too late, if he's there, he is prolly the steal of the draft.

There are not many pitchers ahead of him for this year IMO. He is an injury concern and that might scare away a few owners, but I doubt it will scare away everyone in your league. If he's available in the 3 or 4 rounds, depending on who else is also available, I'd be happy to take him.

Provided that he is healthy (he's had that weird ear infection for two years in a row plus shoulder injury in 05), there is no reason to think that he won't be a top 5 starter. A lot of people will look at his final line but his second half was just as dominant as the numbers he put up in 04.

I am concerned about his workload but if his shoulder is fine, he will have more offensive support than the Brewers probably ever had since the early 80s.

The only pitchers I have ahead of him currently are Santana and Pedro. You would be very lucky to get him in the 3rd round.

Doesn't Sheets fall behind guys like Peavy, Oswalt, Halladay and maybe Carpenter as well as Santana & Pedro?

3rd round seems early to me. I was thinking more like late 4th-5th.

I would shoot for Sheets in the 4th round and probably would consider him in the 3rd round. Sheets, Pedro, Santana, Oswalt, and Peavy are the class of the field in most drafts.

No. My SP ranking is: Santana, Pedro, Sheets, Peavy, Halladay, Oswalt, Prior, RJ, Harden, Zambrano... I don't have Carpenter on my top 10.

I'm with everyone else. I have Sheets ranked third overall for SP. Only behind Johan and Peavy. I would take him in the third round if he was still there.
