Chris Young, his move to SD will benefit him greatly.

Jason Vargas of Florida. Good K numbers, decent control and improving.

Brandon McCarthy, Vazquez will implode by June and McCarthy will take his place in the rotation

Underrated - C Young, D Cabrera, B Penny, A Harang, C Capuano

I always like to look st DIPS and ERC from last season. It gives you a sense of some guys who may be undervalued due to bad luck and some guys who may be overvalued to due to good luck. You can find this info in the espn.com stats data base.

i think it's safe to say that Harden has already broken out...

penny is rated just fine, he's coming off an injury, and he simply hasn't been pitching well when healthy

harang just flat out blows

agreed on capuano, d. cabrera and perhaps c. young...

I like Eric Debard to have a shot at surprising this season. He was pitching as well as anybody before he got hurt last season. Has shut down stuff and Mazzone might be able to help turn him into an top tier pitcher.

I have to completely disagree on capuano. I do like him, but I think the average fantasy player is going to look at his win total from last year and overrate him. He's someone I would like to have, but don't expect to get.

I really like Young this year as well. Maybe not a ton of wins, but should have nice numbers.

Eric Debard :-D

*Erik Bedard pitched well for my team too last year before he got hurt. I wouldn't mind giving him another go.

Paul Maholm. I'm not saying he should be your Ace. But he'll be cheap.
