1) Santana
2) Pedro

4) Zamby
5) Peavy
6) Schmidt
7) Halladay
8) Kazmir
9) King Felix
10) Carpenter

Liriano wouldn't be far off, but seven starts does not warrant a top-10 position for me. He'd be marginal on my top-20.


the first list has many problems.. but two big ones were peavy and oswalt to far down.. and missing a couple solid pitchers..with this one.. peavy > zam.. halladay > schmidt DEFINETLY... carpenter > schmidt.. carpenter > zam.. halladay > zam.. you put zambrano and schmidt too high up.. carpenter too far down.. king felix infront of carpenter? comon..


I have Peavy and Zamby very close, but Zamby gets the nod b/c of moderate injury concerns with Peavy. Halladay below Schmidt simply because of the K's, but with Schmidt's injury concerns, I understand your point. Carp is down b/c he's only had one dominant season. F-Her (why don't we use this nickname more?) is still the best "prospect" pitcher in the bigs. Don't sleep on him in '07.

I'll concede Schmidt might be a little high, but otherwise I stand by my top 10 at this point in time.
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

Wow do you like the young guys. There is no way that Reyes and Cain will be top pitchers in 07. Next year they will both be solid, but 08 should be the year that they really break out. (If they do.) ;-D

2) Kazmir is going to be better than Johan. Serious.



the mets fave up on him because his mechanics seemed to indicate that he is due for a serious injury down the road. and he is throwing a lot of pitches so far this season...i doubt that he will ever be better than johan.

IMHO
