The next big arms to get?

Postby Is_it_the_shoes? » Fri Jun 08, 2007 10:03 am

I play in a highly competitive auction-dynasty league that places a large influence on getting prospect pitchers and getting them cheap. I like to get the guys before the really breakout, this way I don't have to pay a ton and get to keep him longer. I was wondering if any of you guys can throw out some names of pitchers who should be at the top next year and the year after. Im going to list all the prospects currently drafted, just throw out names who I really should be on the watch for. The idea is to get them before they reach the Lincecum/Gallardo/Hughes level.

Already Drafted:
Gallardo
Andrew Miller
Hughes
Adam Miller
Buchholz
Bailey
Lincecum
Hochevar
Erbe
Inman
Elbert
Morrow
Slowey
Lofgren
Garza
Huber
Niemann
Adenhart
Kershaw
Lester
Pelfrey

I'm pretty interested in Hellickson, Joba, Guerra, Betences, McGhee and Bowden. I get the feeling the last two will go for a lot next year. Price and Porcello also.

Please give me some names and insight. Thanks!

The limit on how long you can sign a guy to a contract is 3 years. Each year after that, the contract doubles itself. So it'd be smartest to get guys who have an ETA of 2008-2009.

Price and Mcgee. Joba after that.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
