Yahoo hasn't added him yet. I was thinking about letting him step into the big footsteps of Mark Mulder, who will not fulfill his contract for this season that he signed with me.... :-B

Thanks for the info AC! Look's like Justin's numbers are a bit better than Rich's!

I remember reading about Blanton in Moneyball (great book for those who haven't read it).

Just curious, why do you think that? Rich has a lower era, better hr ratio, better k's per 9, lower hits per 9. Its unfair to compare a 25 year old to a 21 year old. A better comparision might be to pull Justins numbers at age 21. A 4 year difference is huge in the minors.

and that is why people are so high on Harden, 21 and those stats. Justin's stats are very good but he just has a few years. I would rather have Harden, oh wait, I do have Harden :-) Watch for Blanton next year. I heard somewhere that they refused to trade him, and knowing Oakland pitching...

Duchscherer is good for the short-run, Harden is good for the long-run. The A's would be better to have Justin in the playoffs than Harden, simply because of the experience that Justin has.

arden will be a very good pitcher in 2005. Just about the time when Zach Greinke should start to shine ;-D I'm hoping he gets called up, if only for 1 start, so that I can get him in my keeper league. He seems to be the best thing since Mark Prior, and not that many people (regulary fantasy Joe's) have heard much about him.
