He will be good, but he's young and inexperienced right now. He's only 22, but I think he will be a solid #2 pitcher someday. I still think he's a year away, but will still have a decent year this year. He just has to be consistent.

I think he'll see these numbers

13 Wins
3.80-4.20 ERA
185 Innings
140 SO

That's my $.02


Pretty much spot on here. He'll be a solid back-of-the-rotation guy for your fantasy squad this year, and he's got upside, which is what you should look for in those guys. Expect inconsistancy, but he shut down a solid lineup for the second start in a row, and I'm bullish.

He was heralded as a prospect, although not to the same degree that guys like Liriano have been. In the 2004/2005 offseason, Baseball America rated him as the Braves #4 prospect behind Francoeur, Marte, and McCann, which isn't bad company to be behind at all. If you're in a keeper, definitely go for him. If not, he's still worth a WW pickup for a weaker bench player or mediocre starter.

Thomson is underrated.

This is Bobby Cox we're talking about. I'm sure if you interviewed him you'd find him saying "Brian Jordan's still a 30 HR bat when he's healthy"

Here's some discussion of Davies on a Braves blog: link
