Anibal Sanchez, I would rank him ahead of Petit and anything could happen with the Marlins.

Craig Hansen next year when Papelbon becomes a starter.

Cesar Carrillo


Dustin McGowan is not projected to be an Ace type.

Nor is Sanchez, neither Olsen or Josh Johnson made the list and Sanchez is a step below those 2 but I like him better than Petit.

Hansen is a RP, we are talking about SP here.

No idea who Carrillo is...Fill me in?



Funny how Hansen is working on another pitch and starting all of his
minor league games, huh? :-?


Carrillo is a stud imo, drafted out of UMiami i believe by SD and really is quite polished and has a chance to be very successful in Petco. He should be up sometime during midseason.

I see McGowan as a great #3 to Halladay & Burnett if he can harness his abilty and build up his stamina.

Hansen's stuff is so good that they think he can be a starter. they are stretching him out and making him refine his three pitches. I guess it doesn't hurt.

The only guy I can think of off the top of my head who every did anything like that would be Mark Prior.

If Pelfrey is on the list, why not Andrew Miller :*) :-b }:-)

Oh and if Pelfrey does end up in the back of the Mets rotation this year, I like my Braves' chances even more ;-D


Pelfrey is touted as an "advanced college product." He is close to being major-league ready, as is Alex Gordon. They'll join their fellow draft mate, Zimmerman, in the majors soon. I wouldnt surprised to see him get a cup of coffee at the major league level in September when rosters are espanded.

Right now I think Matt Garza is the best pitcher in the minors. While moving from A to AA, he's been simply dominating. Now I'm not saying he gets called up but his stats are just fantastic (Hamels-like) and no injury history. How much long will the Twins let Radke keep blowing games? I'd probably like to see Durbin in there before Garza, but I don't know if they can hold this kid back.

Absolutely, up to AA several weeks ago and is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a rediculous k rate 8-o

He started the last 2 if I am not mistaken.
