Young Starters that can make a difference

Who are you guys pegging as this years versions of Verlander, Weaver, and Hamels?

Who, if anyone can burst onto the scene this year and really make a splash?

I like Anthony Reyes (St. Louis) this year. I think he takes a BIG step forward and is worth a late round gamble....

Yep. Hands down the best guy to pickup. You can't go wrong with a guy who's shown he can pitch well against major leaguers starting on a world championship team.

Reyes is my pick for breakout pitcher.


Lester also will have a gone season, after he takes Julian's spot in the rotation.

Phil Hughes is a prospect for the Yanks

I know he plays for the Rangers now, but B.McCarthy could have a nice season.

I just joined a 16 team league...biggest ive ever played in, so i am hoping to find the next big thing cuz my pitching is very weak right now
Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

Im in a 14 team league and when pitching was dieing out, i went with these guys as possible solid picks, Though spring training doesnt mean too much it is a good sign for nearly all of these pitchers-

A.Reyes- .56 era in 16 innings
Jamie Shields- 2.61 era with 18 k's inn 17.1 innings
McCarthy- not too good stats in spring
Loewen- 1.38 era with 18 k's in 13 innings

I'd like to add John Maine to this list. He will start for the Mets. He looked good last year, including the post season.
