I think with Curt Schilling dealt to the Sox, he might fly under the radar, and you can get him late. :-D

Also on the list:

Concur with Peavy, Soriano, Hawkins and Nixon.

I don't agree with Shea ("call me white trash") Hillenbrand--the word is Arizona is looking to get rid of him.

Toby Hall, again (he has to hit better, right?)

Boston's fifth starter--Arroyo or Kim should do well.

Radke--he ended the year very well, and with that changeup, he could have a good year.

Crosby--When did Beane call up an unprepared player? I might even draft him over Matsui because of Shea.
I'm back. Sorta.

With the Arod- manny deal likely to happen, boston will now have to trade nomar, the talk is nomar to the angles for washburn. This will happen if the angels sign colon. Wasburn will be unrated and will get you wins. Its amazing that if vlad goes to the O's some of our 1st round pick come from primarily from the AL east.

Mondesi - depends on where he goes but could end up with the royals which isnt a bad place for a hitter to go. i thought the rockies might have been interested in him but i havent heard too much about that.

kearns and dunn. i dont think dunn can possibly be as bad next year. you can throw burrell in with them. these are big name guys that might not be 'sleepers' but they will definitely fall in the draft and could provide a lot of bang for you buck.

woody williams - i am cardinal fan so i will throw this one out there. he was something like second in the league in pitches per game and threw a career high 220 innings. he said it didnt affect him but i think it did. if the birds get their bullpen together they wont need to make him throw 110 pitches per game every time. if they can yank him an inning earlier than i think he will last all season. his second half wasnt too good and i think it was fatigue related more than anything. if they can keep him under 100 pitches per game and about 180 innings i think he can put up some good numbers.

This player won't get much notice, he wasn't offered arbitration, he's gone. No player has worse splits at home. Keep him in mind.

He should enjoy the power increase DLee will, now add in avg.
After hitting 253, he won't be thought highly of. I think he could go close to 25/25.

Very good call. Unless he goes to the Mets.
