K Brown falls into the Sweeney, Griffey mold of too unreliable in terms of injuries to draft ahead of solid players that are healthy. That being said, I have K Brown as #59 on my cheat sheet.

I think he will be very good. If i can get as my 2nd pitcher I will be very happy. The problem is I wont take my 1st pitcher till the 4th round atleast

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

Can he stay healthy?

He did most of last season. With the Yanks offense and last season's stats he would have won 20 games and not 14.

Can he stay healthy?

That drops him in my rankings outside of the SP top 12

yeah, likewise.
the guy is good, when he is healthy - look at last year. But i think it took a team that can afford to gamble like the yankees to take brown on board. I wouldnt draft him entirely early, just because he seems fragile.

The drawbacks of Kevin Brown:
1) Age
2) Injury risk
3) Moving from Dodger Stadium (baseball's best pitcher's park) to Yankee Stadium (a more neutral park)
4) High ground ball to fly ball ratio (3.04 to 1, last season) means more hits getting past no-range Derek Jeter than got past Izturis last season (Izturis is a much-better defensive shortstop despite what Tim McCarver thinks).

Benefits of Kevin Brown:
1) Peripheral numbers were still strong last season, at age 38 (7.9 K/9, 2.4 bb/9)
2) Awesome Yankees lineup should provide many wins if he stays healthy.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
