I saw the Terrence and Phillip movie 14 times! Who wants to touch me? I said who wants to touch me?!
Bah, humbug.

3. Adam Wainwright: has good stuff and on the cardinals and wont be pitching against most 1 or 2 sp


After week 3, because of off days, pitchers match up against any pitchers. The spot in order is really immaterial.

Garcias best years were in Safeco.

3.64 era in Safeco.
4.46 era in U S Cellular, which favors hitters like Citizens Bank.

I wouldnt call Zumaya a sleeper, especially if your league counts holds. Everyone loves those young fireballers (see: Jenks, Bobby).

Wainwright might be a sleeper but not if Issy isn't healthy and he can steal some saves.

i agree ;-D i agree you would know how to spell his name...not to mention, i didnt think personal trainer went to the y with their clients :-?

be nice to the guy.
tim lincecum is far from a household name.

this is a fantasy baseball messboard,
not solely a minor league discussion.

plus,
one time a football player came into my work,
and signed his name differently than it's spelled in the media.
it happens.
(at least twice, anyways)

has corey last any weight?
his raw power is pretty impressive,
I wouldn't put a 30/30 season (someday) past him if he isn't too bulked up.

I'll be happy with a healthy year from Juan Encarnacion number from Hart this year. 15/15 is possible.

Agree Tim Lincecum is no household name. But wait till 2008 when he IS. :-D

have a bet going. Can't have 2 sig bet at the same time. I like Lincecum a ton but he isn't assured of a starting gig like Hart is. Or else I'd bet with you.

Tell you what. Check back with me next year. I'll have Hart vs. Lincecum bet with you next year when both will be starting in the MLB.

And what type of production do you expect out of Hart in 07?

.300 25HR 25SB?

I think .280 18HR 10SB is more than generous for him.

I definitely think he could go 20-20.

.280 sounds about right for his average,
maybe a bit higher.

20HR is possible

but have you seen his SB vs. CS rate at the high minors and majors? He was caught more time then stealing successfully last year :-o

Trust me, I'm not a Hart basher by any mean. I liked him for a long time and own him in a team. But the CSs are a big concern.
