Your point is well taken. Howver, Mussina, lowe, zito & johnson are pitchers I have given the benefit of the doubt because they have stood the test of time. They have produced over & over on a yearly basis. Hamels, cain, sowers and the like are the next regime of quality pitchers, but they are still developing and only one of them has pitched over 132 innings.

Looks good, but I would move Peavy and Zambrano ahead of Halladay and maybe move Felix up a few slots.

Peavy should be ahead of Zambrano. Here's their last three seasons:

<pre>IP H ER BB SO ERA WHIP W
571.6 495 199 165 604 3.13 1.15 39
647 506 226 282 600 3.14 1.22 46</pre>

And that's with Peavy getting rather unlucky run-support.

I'd move Harden up a few spots...

I know he's big risk, but i think he will come out big this year.

Zambrano's run support last season was 5.97, the highest on the Cubs. Peavy's was 4.45, the lowest on the Padres. In 2005, Peavy's run support was 4.34, second lowest on the Padres. Zambrano's was 4.71, third among Cubs starters. Zambrano's run support in 2004 was 6.07.

Okay,,, I just have to ask what type of projections do you have for Lackey??? I have to protect 6 pitchers and I have Santana, Liriano (which will count as a roster spot-DL), Lackey, Felix, Smoltz, and K-Rod...
