:-) This would be my order:


1) Mulder
2)Hudson
3)Morris
4)Wood
5)Halladay
6)Burnett

Mulder and Hudson are close but I go with Mulder due to his younger age.Morris is as consistant as they come and should remain so for many years.Wood's control is still not great and as of now that is the only thing holding him back.Halladay was worked hard last year which could end up hurting his longevity.Burnett is still a question mark in my view.I thought he had a very good year last year but I would need to see 1-2 more before puting him up there.Hpoe that helps.

1. Wood (proven 200k+ guy,low era/whip)
2. Mulder ( Awesome control + pitchers park)
3. Halladay (G. Anderson of picthing. Gets no respect)
4. Morris (Down year last year..look for rebound)
5. Hudson (same as morris..still has great control/pitcher's park)
6. Burnett..(nowhere near last year's success this year)

kind of scary huh? But his 18 wins/250ks and 3.20/1.10 era/whip will be taking me to the championship baby.

Not if I get him first :P
From the official rulebook of baseball: "Baseball is a game played between two teams of nine players each." Therefore, baseball is a game played only in the National League.

thx for the responses.....ive have my doubts about woods ability to win in chicago, along with any pitcher there, but you cant argue with the k's and era, and i hope with a sub 3.5 era he could win 16-18 games. ive always liked halladay, but he did drop at the end of the season, no doubt due to overuse ( 239 innings in his first year??? thats nuts) i may try and snag him in the 4th, i hope he slips, meanwhile im still torn between proven wins and solid era (mulder) vs. incredible k's and potential to be a top dog when rj/schilling retire(wood of course).
