I think Wang is being slept on. (No bad jokes intended). I would put him up in the early twenties area. While he doesn't strike out a ton of guys, his win totals w/ the Yanks should easily make up for it.

I like the 'corrections' you've made with #1 through the high teens... Though, I think you need to do some minor reshuffling with the 20 to 30 range. In my above post I think Wang should be higher and guys like Arroyo, Cain & Bedard should be a few notches lower.

Also, I can't believe we all neglected Dontrel Willis. He should definitely be on there, imo.

You are absolutely right. I don't know what was worse, my brainfart not putting him on there originally, or 25 posts before someone caught it. Thanks.

Honestly, it took me reading through the Sporting News expert mock to catch it.

I guess those things are useful for something after all. ;-7

Let's take a look at the recent expert draft
http://fantasy.sportingnews.com/basebal ... /1_12.html
http://fantasy.sportingnews.com/basebal ... 13_23.html

Everybody talks about Anthony Reyes from ST.L being in the top 40. He went #272 overall with the experts. 5th from last in round 23 of a 12 team league.

Of course this draft was a little funny anyways. Seems they served the beer first, then drafted. But the list is decent for comparison.

1. J.Santana
2. C.Carpenter
3. R.Oswalt
4. R.Halladay
EDIT - B.Webb fits here, though I don't feel like renumbering.
5. C.Zambrano
6. B.Myers
7. C.Hamels
8. J.Peavy
9. Jd. Weaver
10. S.Kazmir
11. J.Smoltz
12. J.Verlander
13. J.Lackey
14. CC.Sabathia
15. B.Sheets
16. J.Bonderman
17. C.Young
18. E.Bedard
19. D.Willis
20. A.Wainwright (listed because he migth start or close, unclear at the moment)
21. A.Harang
22. M.Cain
23. J.Papelbon (start rotation or bullpen one more year?)
24. J.Johnson
25. D.Haren
26. CM.Wang
27. M.Mussina
28. D.Matsuzaka
29. E.Santana
30. F.Hernandez
31. R.Harden
32. R.Clemens (it seems most assume he's going to be playing the 2nd half)
33. D.Lowe
34. F.Garcia
35. C.Capuano
36. C.Schilling
37. J.Schimdt
38. AJ.Burnett
39. B.Arroyo
40. G.Maddux
41. D.Bush
42. S.Olsen
43. T.Glavine
44. R.Johnson
45. J.Garland
46. K.Escobar
47. C.James
48. A.Sancez
49. J.Contreras
50. J.Beckett
51. A.Pettitte
52. N.Robertson
53. M.Prior
54. R.Hill
55. J.Vazquez
56. J.Sowers
57. J.Patterson
58. T.Hudson
59. K.Millwood
60. J.Jennings
