I like Rogers the most from that list, but at this level, most are spot starters

I like Chen Also, his numbers have been improving gradually over the past two seasons. He's due for a breakout this year or next.

Yet another reason why I love NL- or AL-only leagues. All of these guys are viable in that format!!

Assuming that I'm picking a player to pitch for me all season long, I would go with one of Verlander, Suppan or Chen. However if this spot will be on the fringe of your roster, I might be inclined to pick Washburn, as he might be the easiest to sell in a trade after a good start.

Wang, Suppan, Marquis should get quite a few wins
Verlander , Chacin,Santana and Maholm are young with some decent talent.
And Rogers might be ok pitching in Detroit.
In a 12 team league, I wouldn't mind having any of the above as my last starting pitcher.

man this is why 18 and 20 team leagues are fun.

Chacin is my #3
Kenny Rogers is my #4
and Verlander #5

12 team leagues=boring all star teams

Perhaps you've done this for some unknown reason, but Big Tiex, do you realize that your name is a misspelled abbreviation for Teixeira? You might want to change that.

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.



You obviously haven't done your homework on Mr Washburn.

His away numbers have always been far better than his home numbers so the change to Seattle is a huge plus in his favour. He will also now pitch against the Angels who are a leftie stacked team and throughout his career he has had a great deal more success against left handed hitters than right.

Add to that the fact that his overall career numbers are better than any of those guys you mentioned ahead of him and that he has battled health problems the past two seasons.

By all accounts he is now 100% (the Mariners certainly think so) and although only a 5th starter, he is still the Top pitcher on that list.
He is an absolute must start against left handed dominated hitting teams.

No one else on that list is anything other than a spot starter.

I would go with Eaton myself. He was looking very good last year before he got injured, and he if you remember there was a lot of buzz about him breaking out last year too. His new home park is going to be a challenge, but I do think he's the best of that motley crew.
