Carl Crawford.

Seriously.

Everyone always hates on him but next year nobody will balk at taking him in round 1.

Crawford is an end of 1st round pick and has put up end of first round value 4 years in a row(for roto at least). Dont' really see him go higher than that so not sure how he is overrated.

Loewen left his Thursday start after just 2 2/3 innings and admitted that he had been pitching through pain. This is the same elbow that caused Loewen to miss most of last year due to a stress fracture that required surgery. It's unclear just how long he'll be out, and Matt Albers or possibly Jim Johnson seem like the favorites to start in his place.


4 GS, 18.1 IP, 20 H, 15 BB, 12 K, 7.85 ERA, 1.91 WHIP :-D

I think Markakis will be considered a fantasy stud next season. Probably a late 1st or early 2nd rounder.

As a rule, elbow injuries lead to worse control and shoulder injuries to reduced velocity. Anyway, I think it's a pretty big stretch to mention Loewen and superstar in the same breath (unless the other words are if he can stay healthy and figure out where the plate is).

You could totally mention Loewen and superstar in the same breath provide it is split by a "is not a/will never be a/could not throw batting practice to a"
