Brandon Funston is a moron.

He's got possibly the worst team in 12-team league history.

I doubt Prior will go as low as 11th in many drafts, but note the warning in the SportsWeekly fantasy preview this week:

"The scouts say he has picture-perfect mechanics, and they may be right, but there's no disputing the fact that he threw the most pitches per start of any major leaguer (113). He then averaged 123 pitches over three postseason starts. This at the tender age of 22. It undoubtedly will continue unless and until he breaks down -- what manager could bring himself to consistently give an early hook to the majors' most effective pitcher?"

Prior is on their list of "burnout candidates", where pitchers with heavy workloads before their mid-20s have a higher risk of injuries.

i don't buy into the burnout theory unless you have bad mechanics. We'll see but I don't see that happening.

My burnout candidate is Halladay.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Halladay certainly pitched a ton of innings in 2003, but perhaps he won't burn out because he's older. In fact, at the end of 2003 he wasn't getting weary, but getting better. Remember the 10-inning shutout?

The guy that hired them didn't realize he was hiring sports writers. He thought he was hiring two clowns, fun something and Clarabell!
