Are you nervous about the Oakland starters???

Zito, Hudson, and Mulder were considered top tier starters last year. With the lack of run support, the off year for Zito, and the injury to Mulder, are you moving them down a few slots in your draft rankings? I believe I will.

The only major weakness to the trio is the flailing offense.

theyre still up high for me. the only way zito had an off year last year was his 12 losses. batters still only hit .219 off him which was only behind pedro martinez, and he actually reduced his homers allowed from his cy-young season and finished 5th in the AL in homers per 9 innings. his 3.30 era was still top 10 and he tied for 5th in the league in quality starts. and hes durable, starting 35 games for the 3rd year in a row. hes not slipping, he just doesnt have any run support.
theyre coming.....

Indeed, seems like he always finds a way to put it together before the season.

I wouldn't bump them down. Is anyone bumping down Wood and Prior over Cubs offense, which likely won't be much better?

I really look for big things from all 3. I believe Zito will bounce back and have a great year.
