Marquis might be my favorite in a single-season league. There are some other 'hot' names, but with much higher variability.

I'd say Marquis, Chen, Suppan, Santana, Verlander, Maholm, are on that border.


The rest would be a stretch at that level.

Only as spot starters.

Washburn would be top of that list for me.

I think Washburn is a huge risk. His peripheral numbers last year were not very good, so his ERA is very misleading. I'd be very surprised if his ERA was below 4.25, and he's not a big K guy. Add that to a 1.3 WHIP or so, and it's not too good.

Year after year people just write off Jamie Moyer as being old. And what has he done ? He just keeps winning and putting up a decent Whip.Rogers could be a decent keeper here. Pitching in a big park half his games. If he gets off to a good start like last year you could trade him while he is hot.

Chen had decent numbers last year.
Eaton was looking good before his injury. Not sure about playing in Texas though.
Santana is a good young prospect with a year under his belt.
Verlander is a good prospect but will be a rook.

The rest are just waiver wire fodder IMO.

Are we looking at the same Moyer? The last two years his WHIP has been 1.39 each year.

When I get late in drafts I draft players (especially pitchers) who can get better not stay the same or worse. No guarantee they will but I want someone with possible upside .
The two on that list that jump out at me are Santana and Wang. Some experience already helps. Guys like Verlander have tremendous upside but havent had any experience to talk about.

You might think Olsen and Chacin fit that bill to but Chacin doesent miss enough bats to suit me and think Olsen only has #4/5 starter stuff at best.

I like Wang. He will be solid on a great offensive team.
