Easily a 5th rounder, I'd even take him 2nd round in keeper leagues

He has been less than durable so far. Great pitcher when healthy, I do think his shoulder is bothering him.

Given the influx of new great pitchers, I'd probably pass on him next year. I can't deal with injuries to pitchers.

Last night he only gave up two hits, one ER, 2 BB, and 14K. Can't ask for more than that.

Glad I have him. Picked him up about a month ago, after another owner gave up on him.

I think Peavy could be underrated going into next season, given the lack of run support and given his stats across the board haven't been all that impressive. I could see him going in the 4th or 5th round. Nice bargain for a starter with the potential of becoming the NL's top ace.

I agree with the last few posters. Late 4th to middle 5th is where I'd put his value. That being said I think he'll be grabbed early 4th most of the time in most decent leagues.

I don't care if you think he's going to suck again next year, he sucks while K'ing 10 guys per nine. That alone makes him a 4th-5th round pick in my books.

Thats what I was thinking this entire year, it's a possiblilty that he'll give up a few homeruns, and make a couple of mistakes, but I atleast know he's gonna strike atleast 1 person out an inning.

I moved Glavine for him at just the right moment at the break. Now I'm reaping the benefits. I would spend a 4th round pick on him, maybe earlier. He's the second-in-command on my staff as the ace behind Santana (and this is a staff with Weaver, Wang, Garland, Young, Hamels). I expect him to whiff 300 next year.

I think peavy scored more runs for himself than his team. Maybee a little exaduration, but imho I think thats what screwed peavy up so badly in the beggenening of the year, him thinking that he needs to pitch a shutout to get a win.
